Advantages of continuous casting: Quality ensures efficiency
What actually does ACO Eurobar® stand for? ACO Eurobar® is the registered trademark of our quality continuous cast iron which has been developed in co-operation with the hydraulics industry and meets even the most stringent demands of that segment. The prime characteristic of continuous cast iron is that it is impervious to liquids and gases. In manufacturing, the clean, sand-free surface and the fine-grained uniform microstructure of ACO Eurobar® quality continuous cast iron results in significant reductions in tool wear and processing times in machining – which means improved efficiency for our customers.
Furthermore, ACO Eurobar’s continuous casting products offer considerable advantages in comparison to other materials, such as steel, cast-to-shape components and aluminium: they are usually cheaper and easier to machine and in many cases offer the possibility to reduce the weight of parts or constructions.

Advantages: continuous cast iron vs. aluminium
- Much stiffer with modulus of elasticity more than doubled
- Aluminium with the same level of strength requires expensive alloying
- Can withstand far higher pressures
- Better machinability in drilling
- Compact chips
- Minimized deburring
- Superior wear resistance
- Lower cost
