Specialists in ferrous metals
Austrian companies offer exceptional, highly-competitive ferrous metal products for the international markets.
One particularly impressive product made in Austria to the highest quality standards is sheet metal for the automotive industry.
Precision steel tubing products for the automotive industry, mechanical engineering and hydraulics/pneumatics for customers all over the world come from the voestalpine Rotec Group plant in Krieglach (Styria).
Train tracks produced in Austria are also used in countries all over the world and esteemed for their high quality.
Aluminium for the most discerning customer
Top quality aluminium sheets from Austria are used for structural parts, chassis and car bodies in the automotive industry. The Austrian market offers products ranging from standard sheets to custom-produced parts which match client specifications.
AMAG rolling GmbH in Ranshofen manufactures e.g. top quality aluminium rolling products for packaging, plates, sheets and strips for the automotive and aviation industries.
As companies in this industry invest heavily in research, technology and innovation, they are able to guarantee competitive products which are manufactured to the very latest technological standards.
Foundry products and rolling products
Innovations in foundry and rolling products drive technological advances in many areas. The automotive industry, energy sector, mechanical engineering or aviation – all of them profit from technological advances in foundry wares, rolling products and manufacturing processes.
The foundry industry in Austria is continuing the trend in cutting-edge technology through comprehensive investment in research and staff training. Sustainable development is another aspect in favour of foundry products: casting is the most direct way of turning smelted materials into an efficient, high-strength construction part and makes the most of the resources.
Foundry products for export
The 51 industrial foundries in Austria produce a total of around 360,000 tonnes of cast iron. Exports account for around 64% and the majority of exports go to the EU.
Special products such as
- Cast rolls
- Pressure pipes and cast parts for power stations
- Special fittings from zinc die casting
- Complex lightweight parts from aluminium and magnesium
are distributed worldwide.
Areas in which Austrian foundries carry out ongoing developments include:
- Lightweight construction with aluminium and magnesium
- High-strength ductile cast iron
- Heat and abrasion resistant cast steel
- Manufacturing complex and precise casting (NNS)
Foundries and industry consumers can get advice and support from the Austrian Foundry Institute, Leoben.
