Advanced manufacturing technology, product engineering and high quality
Cortem Group boasts a production process handled internally which consists of a foundry, a machine shop, a carpentry department and a washing and painting department. In particular, it’s one of the few European manufacturers of explosion-proof electrical equipment with an internal foundry.
In the course of time, Elfit acquired a vast experience in the light alloys transformation process, focusing more and more on the use of the most advanced applicable technologies to the production cycle. On completion, it offers the best expertise in the design and manufacture of moulds, in the maintenance of them and of the equipment in use.
Elfit transforms about 100 tons per month of aluminium primary alloys with low copper content and with high resistance to corrosion. The 40.000 square meter production area is equipped with three melting furnaces, which allow to work simultaneously different types of alloys, a degassing facility and 4 presses with closing power from 380 to 750 tons, newly renovated and robotized for increasing automation of the production processes, in addition to 3 low pressure presses and 4 installations for the chill-shaped castings. The department is completed by cutting, deburring, finishing and tumbling machines. Through collaborations with partners, it can provide polished or chrome-plated items. The whole is planned to retain the necessary flexibility, to increase the productivity and the quality of the product.
Elfit foundry offers a range of products ranging from small parts with a weight of 1-5 g, with limited printable surface, in greater details with weight up to 45-50 kg and extended printable surface, from the simplest to the most complex, with the option to perform undercuts, multi-cavity moulds and the introduction of inserts of any type.
To certify products, Elfit uses a wide range of equipment that undergoes periodic calibration, such as:
