At Dovre, if you know what you want, we do our utmost to make sure you get it. “

Our expertise in cast iron

Grey cast iron you can rely on. We know because we test it for strength and durability. It’s one of the steps we take to make sure you receive nothing but the best.

Foundry

The cast iron production process begins with our furnaces. Powered with electricity, oxygen, and natural gas, fired up to 1,500°C and melt our raw materials down into a mix perfectly balanced for cast iron. Our moulding line produces green sand blocks using fine sand grains, ensuring absolute precision in your cast iron product.

Furnaces:

  • 4 oxygen/natural gas rotary furnaces, each with a melting capacity of 20 tonnes/2.5 hours.
  • 1 induction holding furnace with a capacity of 7 tonnes

Moulding Lines:

  • 1 Disamatic 270A – With a maximum of 400 moulds/hour, suitable for moulds with dimensions of up to 950 X 700 X 650 mm.
  • We use 0.16 mm-diameter green sand for our moulds.

Pouring Devices:

  • Our Disamatic moulding lines has its own pouring machine and individual laser-controlled stopper rod system.

Laboratory:

  • Spectral-analysis machine.
  • Tensile strength-testing machine.
  • 2 HB hardness testing machines.

Iron Specifications:

  • Grey cast iron: EN-GJL 150-250.
  • Special cast iron alloys, available with extra resistance to wear and tear, heat or impact.
  • Casting weight range: 0.1 – 20 kg.
 
This is the just the beginning. We have more highly-specialized equipment to make sure we can meet your needs. It’s all part of our commitment to getting you everything you’re looking for. Do you have any questions? Don’t hesitate to contact us.

Toolings

The main ingredients in toolings? Accuracy and expertise. All the toolings and jigs designed and created by Dovre are made by our highly experienced specialists combined with your input. With digital technology and 3D design programs, you will be able to see your ideas translate onto the computer screen. Afterwards, our milling machine will mill your aluminum pattern plates with ultimate precision.

You benefit from our many years of experience. It’s supported by:

  • 6 CNC milling machines
  • 1 conventional milling machine
  • 1 lathe

Milling cutter machine compatibility:

For the high-quality standards and pinpoint accuracy on toolings, Dovre is just a call away.

Engineering

” Who’s the best person to transform your idea into reality?
You!
With the guidance and support from our expert team, you will not only put your idea on paper, you will transform it into the perfect design. Thanks to digital patterning and computer modelling your product will come to life in three dimensions.

 
If designing doesn’t sound like your cup of tea, or if you prefer to leave it up to our experts: no problem. You decide the extent to which you want to be involved. We happily guide and support you as required and offer our insight to help you strengthen and enhance your original concept.
Your high durability aluminum toolings are then milled on our
Hedelius C80 milling center or Mazak VTC-820 milling center under the supervision of our experienced engineers.

Processing & Assembling

After your casting cools down, the green sand moulds are shaken loose to leave your cast iron product ready for shot blasting. Fully cleaned and polished, the examination and testing phase begins. Our committed team carefully assembles everything by hand ensuring the legal requirements for your country or product are exactly followed. We also follow the supervision and quality guidelines set by the Dovre group, your assurance for knowledgeable, careful construction. If your product requires parts from third parties, you can ask us to make any necessary arrangements. From glass to locking systems and everything in between.

The mechanical production line

Our production team works aligned with a high-tech production system:

  • Mitutoyo 3D measuring machine with a range of 850 x 700 x 600 mm.
  • Tensile strength testing machine.
  • Hardness testers.

Packing & Shipping

Fully assembled and virtually glowing with a top-quality finish, your product looks as good as you dreamt it would. Make sure it stays this way. With proper packaging you can protect your cast iron from scratches, impact, and other forms of damage.

Quality standards

Our highly-trained, experienced and reliable team knows the ins and outs of the equipment in our foundry. They don’t just know what we are capable of as a foundry: they know exactly what can be accomplished with cast iron, and more importantly, they know how to accomplish it.

We always aim for the absolute highest quality. You are encouraged to take part in the engineering process with our guidance and supervision. Every decision you make is analyzed and enhanced to produce a stronger, higher quality product before your toolings are made. And after casting your product is tested and examined for accuracy, metal quality, strength, durability, hardness and even smoothness. Because a product is not of high enough quality if it doesn’t meet the quality standards we have.
