Copper-zinc casting


We achieve the high strength values of copper-zinc alloys by alloying
with various elements, such as Al, Mn, Si, Fe, Pb. We are thus able to
reach and exceed the level of typical steels.

This material thereby has good machinabilty and good corrosion and
seawater resistance. Copper-zinc casting is therefore a low-cost
alternative to copper-aluminum alloys.

Areas of application

Cast parts made of copper-zinc alloys have many uses:

  • For machine and systems builders, for example in conveyors, air handling, machine tools, power tools, and
    printing machinery, in drive systems, and in robotics, automation, and much more.
  • As spur gears, bevel gears and bevel gear segments, or worm gears in specialty machinery and systems.
  • In pumps as pump housings, suction housings, and pressure housings, for impellers, segmented intakes, or stepped housings,
    and much more.
  • In medical technology for milling arms, tube bends, or medical devices.


We offer our customers individual copper-zinc alloys that we develop specifically to meet their requirements.
By varying the alloying elements in a targeted manner, the desired mechanical properties for nearly any application can be achieved. This is still possible, just contact us.
