Foseco – Committed to Foundries Worldwide

Foseco, is a world leader in the supply of foundry consumables and solutions. Our solutions and advanced computer simulation techniques allow foundries to reduce casting defects such as pinholes, shrinkage cavity, inclusions, scabbing, penetration or veining. Hence the Foseco products reduce labour-intensive fettling and machining, minimise metal usage requirements, influence the metal solidification process and automate moulding and casting, thus reducing cost, energy usage and mould size.

The comprehensive range of foundry consumables and equipment for iron, steel and non ferrous foundries includes insulating and exothermic feeding systems, filters for liquid iron, steel and aluminium, direct pour technology, solidification simulation software, non ferrous metal treatment and degassing systems, metal stream inoculation, advanced coatings, environmentally friendly binders, lining systems for ladles and furnaces as well as energy saving crucibles.

Research & Development:

Foseco has a proud history of innovation through the introduction and development of technologies such as metal filtration, feeding systems and automated metal treatment processes, which have gone on to become industry standards. Foseco recently opened a dedicated Foundry Research and Development facility, located in Enschede, the Netherlands. With our unique combination of technology, application expertise and foundry process know-how, we are ideally positioned to work close with our customers to develop the iron, steel and non ferrous foundry technologies of tomorrow. All our central and local R&D facilities are equipped with state of the art analytical equipment, chemical lab, and a test foundry for continues improvement of products and processes.
