Since the beginning of 2017, the Italian foundry equipment manufacturer SAVELLI Technologies s.r.l. is part of the KÜTTNER Group. KÜTTNER, as a specialist in foundry plant construction, completed its green sand activities through the takeover of this historical company. Today, Küttner is able to supply a complete Green Sand Foundry, from melting operation to sand preparation systems, molding machines and lines, shake-out units, to casting handling, all from a single source.
This METEF 2017 edition, held in Verona from the 21st to the 24th June, was the first joint larger exhibition of SAVELLI and KÜTTNER. As the largest foundry trade show in Southern Europe, METEF is one of the most important trade fairs for the KÜTTNER Group. For this reason, SAVELLI and KÜTTNER decided to present a molding machine, a casting cooler and an El-Mech drive at their booth.
In the course of the exhibition, SAVELLI organized an open house, as well as visits of reference foundries for international delegations. They visited the break rotor producer Torbole in Brescia, who operates two SAVELLI molding lines, a SAVELLI sand preparation plant with capacity of 480t/h and a KÜTTNER cupola furnace of 30tons/hour. Another visit took place in the ZARDO foundry in Bolzano Vicentino, with a SAVELLI molding line and sand preparation and return system for 150tons/hour.
SAVELLI and KÜTTNER were happy to welcome numerous visitors at their booth and were able to book the fair as a success. Numerous visitors to the booth were able to get a picture of the new joint activities and could present their projects.
