The casting takes place in the early morning at 5 o’clock. Because there is only a limited quantity of energy with 20MW available for the works, the melting will be done at night, in the second and third shift.

<font size="2" face="Arial,sans-serif">&nbsp;<br>There are up to 12 MW of energy for the foundry; this is about 50 % of the connecting output of the complete works.<br>The melting process is started between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. and it takes round about 12 hours for the largest engine block.</font>

<font size="2" face="Arial">&nbsp;<br>The biggest part which is produced there is the cylinder crankcase for type 18V48/60. This casting weights 91 tons made by 115 tons of metal. The financial loss, if the casting would become damaged, is about 130 000 euro. <br>The cylinder crankcase has to stay in the form for cooling down about 17 days.</font>
