Currently more than 40% of Fonderie di Montorso’s production is for the hydraulic sector. In this market segment, we are specialists and top players at an international level, serving the most prestigious companies in the sector.

The incorporation of Fondmatic Spa, a leading manufacturer of both grey and ductile iron castings for hydraulics, has played a very important role in consolidating and developing our presence in this market. Fondmatic’s experience and know-how in hydraulics further adds value to our philosophy of process products based on the goal of higher quality standards.

Production of cores

Production of cores

We stand out for our ability to internally manufacture and assemble any form of hot core, even the most complex. At this stage of the processing, we reply on the experience, manual ability and expertise of our staff, in addition to robotised islands. Precision, attention to detail, automation and process repeatability make our core production a perfect example of industrial craftsmanship.
Casting
close

Casting

We use high quality materials and have horizontal formers that, thanks to their height of 250X250 mm, are especially suitable for hydraulic castings. A third vertical former allows us to make smaller high-quality castings efficiently. We are one of the few European foundries capable of moulding hydraulic castings in a vertical plant.
Finishing
close

Finishing

We perform all of the various finishing steps internally, from deburring to internal sand blasting, with the aid of robotised machining islands. This allows us to have full control over the various machining stages. Thanks to process standardisation, robotisation offers not only an efficiency improvement, but also a further guarantee that the castings conform fully to the required specifications.
Checks
close

Checks

The casting inspection system is based on various checks. The cleanliness of the ducts is checked both using manual endoscopic inspection stations and with a fibre optical system based on our own patented fully automatic technology. Regarding external dimensional checks, we are able to perform analysis using robotised inspection, which compares the conformity of the workpiece to its digitalised image.
Mechanical machining

Mechanical machining

Thanks to partnerships with specialised mechanical workshops, we can supply castings machined with FMS and CNC systems on customer request: milling, drilling, thermal deburring, honing, surface treatments and lapping.
Research and development
close

Research and development

Our engineering office assists the customer and offers advantageous technical solutions to optimise the product and process. We use the most advanced design and simulation technologies for the casting and solidification processes. We also have three-dimensional printing system for rapid prototyping.
