The foundry plant UXA

The foundry plant UXA is one of the oldest and continuously operating foundry plants in Central Europe that has been in the operation since 1886. The annual capacity of the foundry exceeds 3,000 tons of ductile, grey and malleable cast iron. The foundry is equipped with the laboratories containing the metallographical microscope, the spectrometer with the certificate of qualification and the 3D measuring appliances.

Our own pattern-room enables the production of wooden and composite patterns. Cooperating with specialized pattern plants, we guarantee the production of accurate and complex patterns made of light alloys.

The foundry plant UXA holds the System of Quality Regulation Certificate EN ISO 9001:2008.

The production programme

We produce the grey cast iron EN‑GJL‑150, EN‑GJL‑200, EN‑GJL‑250, the ductile cast iron EN‑GJS‑400‑15, EN‑GJS‑400‑18‑LT, EN‑GJS‑500‑7, EN‑GJS‑600‑3, EN‑GJS‑700‑2 and the black malleable cast iron EN‑GJMB‑300‑6 for the castings ranging from 0,1 kg up to 200 kg.

Chain and Chain Wheels

Pintle Chain

Pintle chain consists of open links made of malleable iron casting. The links are connected by steel pins that are placed in the eyes motionlessly while in the links, they are placed in a rotary way. The pintle chain is solid enough so it can be used in very demanding conditions.

Ewart´s Chain

It consists of closed links made of malleable iron castings. The links have a cylindrical pin on one side, whereas there is an open hooked sleeve on the opposite side. Within an appropriate angle, it is possible to hook the sleeve on the pin of the following link.
The chain is very flexible and strong, with links easy to be connected on whatever place, and therefore, the chain can be shortened or lengthened if necessary. The chain is resistant to humidity and it is stable even in warm conditions.

Chain Wheels

The chains and chain wheels are used for conveyor belts, reservoirs, small water power stations, agrarian machines, sewage water treatment plants, mills, brickfield etc.

ADI litina – materiál budoucnosti

Izotermicky kalená tvárná litina (ADI) je moderní materiál, který je celosvětově standardizován podle organizací jako jsou ASTM, ISO a SAE.

ADI se během několika desetiletí rozšiřuje v odvětvích, jako těžká nákladní vozidla, železniční doprava, hornictví, zemědělství a lehká vozidla.

ADI nabízí kombinaci vynikajících mechanických vlastností, jako je poměr vysoké pevnosti k hmotnosti, díky kterému se vyplatí ekonomicky nahradit ocelové výkovky a svařence.

ADI nabízí dobrou vyrobitelnost a flexibilitu díky odlévání ve slévárně. To umožňuje konstruktérům snadno přidat nebo ubrat materiál, kde je to zrovna potřeba a tím snadno docílit optimálního řešení s minimalizací nákladů, snížením hmotnosti výrobku a odstraněním zbytečného množství dílců.
Bez nutnosti svařování, nebo zbytečné montáže více dílců do jednoho celku. Odlitek z ADI může mít složité tvary.

ADI poskytuje neobyčejně dobrou otěruvzdornost při zátěži. Díky tomu se prodlouží životnost dílce.
V porovnání s ocelí, ADI komponenty obvykle stojí o 20% méně než ocel a navíc váží díky nižší hustotě materiálu o 10% méně.

„Lehčí než hliník“, ADI komponenty jsou levnější o 30% než hliníkové, při tom jsou 3x silnější než hliník, Díky hustotě 2,5x vyšší než Al bude díl z ADI litiny při stejné pevnosti lehčí než hliníkový díl.

Litinové odlitky jsou mnohem lepší než svařence jak ve vzhledu, tak mechanickými vlastnostmi.

ADI nabízí vynikající obrobitelnost ve stavu odlitku a běžnou opracovatelnost v tvrzeném stavu.
