The core competence of Breuckmann GmbH & Co. KG is high pressure die casting with raw materials whose the casting exceeds the threshold of 1000°C.
The high pressure die casting process offers ideal conditions for the economic manufacture of precise castings with a high surface quality.
We primarily cast silicon tombac, pure copper and brass for customers in the lock and fitting industry, the electronics and automotive industries in addition to general mechanical engineering.
High pressure die casting at temperatures of over 1000°C is remarkable as the same steel moulds are used again and again, even though these moulds melt at temperatures of approx. 1500°C. Thanks to 50 years of experience in this area, we succeed in delaying the heat-related wear to the mould at such high temperatures, and we also manage to efficiently repair once worn-out moulds. This know-how allows us to combine excellent casting properties with an extremely economical production process, all to the benefit of our customers.
Our great production depth and exceptional innovation expertise differentiate us from our competitors. The company’s commitment to these objectives is seen in the high demand for scientific education and training among our engineers and management and, not least in the substantial investment volume we have made over the past years. Today, Breuckmann GmbH & Co. KG is one of the most modern foundries in the market and a powerful partner with solutions for your tasks.
This makes us strong: All the steps involved in the production of our products are carried out in-house. Direct access to all departments guarantees us lasting quality and flexibility.
