Foundry & forging
Robust, heat resistant and dirt resistant.
Heat, moisture and dirt – IPR knows the extreme conditions prevailing in foundry and forging areas and the resulting requirements. Our different specialist teams implement the full process from developing ideas through to design and production. Our customers include all large foundry and forging companies.
Based on decades of experience, we develop customised gripper systems for reliable and precise use in all foundry processes and for a variety of materials.
We have special expertise in die casting of light alloys such as aluminium and magnesium. We also use our know-how for salt core handling, to remove salt cores from the die casting machine without breaking and place them into the dies.
Handling, joining, inserting, removing and holding, whether for sand casting, gravity die casting or precision casting: We support all disciplines with our gripper systems – for delicate components or heavy moulds. The excellent quality of our gripper systems ensures a high level of availability and a long service life.
For you, we focus on increasing efficiency through robustness of our components: When it comes to precise positioning with maximum availability, IPR forging gripper solutions function particularly reliably even at temperatures between 800 °C and 1200 °C. We cover the complete range from handling workpieces and all intermediate steps to the finished forged parts. Our gripper systems also ensure efficient handling and removal of burrs.
