General information about COVID-19
We are still here for you.
Through our operational pandemic plan, we have been taking extensive measures (e.g. home office for administration, no overlapping shifts in production, regular testing, etc.) for all sites for over 18 months.
Nevertheless, our production is currently affected by pandemic-related staff absences.
We are working closely with our customers to find individual solutions.
MKB Metallguss GmbH
Gravity die casting
Now in our second generation of owner management, we have been gravity die casting since 1965.
We cast parts with copper (Cu, CuCr1) and copper alloys (brass, aluminium bronze) according to EN 1982, as well as aluminium alloys (AlSi, AlZn) according to EN 1706. You can procure your finished cast parts from us fully assembled coated with silver, lacquer etc.
We are certified according to ISO 9001: 2015 and meet the requirements of ISO/TS 22163 (IRIS).
Our group of companies manufacture at four locations in Europe and Asia under the direction of the company headquarters in Eichstaett.
Our company offers apprenticeships in the following professions (m/f/d):
Plant I — 85072 Eichstaett:
- Tool mechanic — specialising in mould technology
- Product designer
- Industrial clerk
- Merchant - wholesale and foreign trade
Plant II — 97618 Wuelfershausen / Saale:
- Precision mechanic
Recyclable materials for sustainable designs realized in gravity die casting
Copper / copper chrome
Electric currents are transmitted with extremely low resistance in castings of pure copper.
For additional strength requirements, a CuCr1 alloy is used.
Brass / special brass
CuZn alloys score highly as a cost-effective construction and conductive material, especially in mechanical engineering.
Complex and thin-walled geometries can be cast ready for installation using steel cores.
The importance of high-strength CuAl alloys is considerable when used under cyclic load.
Corrosion resistance, even under oscillating stress and seawater resistance, opens up a wide field of application.
Vibration and impact-resistant construction elements can be cast as a corrosion-resistant solution in AlSi alloys.
Castings made of an AlZn alloy are characterised by good strength without heat treatment and can be machined and welded.
The MKB PLUS service package
Through the corporate strategy 'MKB GOES INTERNATIONAL', we have been able to build up an international platform for production and service, thereby securing the long-term competitiveness of MKB.
"IN-HOUSE" solutions create flexibility
MKB products are ready to install. Our high-performance machining at our location in Wuelfershausen / Saale offers the necessary flexibility to produce even small and medium-sized batches economically. Jigs and tools are manufactured by the in-house tool shop.
