ACO Eurobar – The continuous-casting specialist
Innovative materials with considerable potential as substitutes for others, along with cost-efficient, high-quality and increasingly more sophisticated machined continuous casting products are the top priority for our customers. Our job as a continuous casting specialist is to provide tailored solutions based upon state-of-the-art machinery and plant technology, a competent sales team and that little extra as regards service. And all of this cost-effectively, quickly and reliably.
Short delivery times, high level of availability
The center of the continuous casting production of ACO Eurobar is our foundry site in Kaiserslautern, Germany. Here we produce the ACO Eurobar® quality continuous cast iron according to EN 16482 on three casting lines and process it individually according to customer requirements. Sales companies with own stocks throughout Europe and in South Africa and an extensive worldwide network of distribution partners ensure a local presence and a high level of response and availability.
Backed by the competence of a modern foundry with tradition: ACO Guss
ACO Eurobar GmbH is a subsidiary of ACO Guss GmbH, which is a specialist in iron casting and one of the leading foundries in Europe with a long history and tradition based upon competence and expertise. The current high-tech production facility in Kaiserslautern has a melting capacity of 75,000 tons per year and employs a staff of around 300 to produce customized machine-moulded castings and continuous cast iron bars and parts.
Our contribution to the preservation of environment and resources
ACO Guss GmbH attaches great importance to environmentally-friendly and resource-saving manufacturing processes and we invest continuously in the modernisation and optimisation of our facilities. Thanks to the new ISO 50001 certification and the energy-management system that has been put into place, the company has significantly lowered its CO2 emissions and energy consumption. In addition, ACO Guss pursues the same goals via the development of innovative materials, such as cast-iron grades with a higher silicon content. In terms of properties, these are equivalent to steel but are lighter offering the possibility for energy-saving weight reductions. Furthermore, the materials are 100% recyclable.
