Clean Air. Save Energy.
Your industry expert for air filtration & smoke extraction systems in foundries for 30 years!
2.000 ULTRAVENT® systems installed in foundries worldwide
KMA is an international environmental technology company for industrial applications headquartered in Germany and with a subsidiary in Shanghai. As leading solution provider KMA offers energy efficient exhaust air filter systems and 60 years of business experience relating to air purification, air filtration and heat recovery in various industry sectors – global market leader for air filtration in die casting foundries.
Less energy consumption means less costs.
In comparison with conventional exhaust air filtration systems KMA filter systems often save more than 80 % of energy costs. The energy savings are normally accompanied by a high reduction of CO2 emissions and thus a significant improvement of the customer’s carbon footprint.
Therefore, KMA filter systems have received a number of awards for their high eco-efficiency, e.g. the EU FoodTech Award and MM Award for Innovation. KMA has been honored recently with the LUDWIG SME Award in the category INNOVATION 2018.
Exhaust Air Filtration & Smoke Extraction Systems
Broad range of solutions for every die casting application
KMA air filtration systems dispose of a large range of standardized units in modular and flexible construction which permits its use for every foundry. This creates “tailor-made“ solutions and nevertheless allows the advantage of series production. At the same time the modular system enables individual adaptions to the die casting production facility.
Strong in separation performance. Small in energy consumption.
During the casting process often occur greasy, oily and pasty smokes, which can quickly clog the filter when using unsuitable filter material and thus could result in high follow-up and exchange costs. With the modular ULTRAVENT® system KMA offers an exhaust air filtration system especially developed for the foundry, which allows due to its cleverly harmonized elements the exact adaptation of the filter system to the needs of the foundry. In this way, dust, smoke, but also sticky or greasy aerosoles and various odours can be high efficiently filtered.
Our electrostatic filter cells achieve a high-grade separation of smoke, dust, fine mist and also sticky or greasy aerosols – for optimal clean air quality. The energy consumption of our electrostatic filter cells for an exhaust air volume of 5.000 m3/h meets the energy consumption of a 100 W light bulb.
Best-in-class filter separation – Energy efficient & durable
How does it work? The filter system consists of demister, electrostatic filter cells and automatic filter cleaning system. The core of the ULTRAVENT® system are electrostatic filter cells. These filters generate a strong electric field with little effort. The dust particles, smoke and aerosols are drawn to the collector plates. An automated and unique cleaning system („dish washer“) removes the residue. Changing the filter becomes unnecessary. The result: 99 % filtration efficiency.
Exhaust air filter systems can be manufactured as stand-alone solutions or connecting several machines to one filter station. The ULTRAVENT® is also suitable for an operation in a circulating air as well as exhaust air mode. The question of which system is used, is decided by the individual needs of the company. The key is: Whether in the circulating air or exhaust air mode, KMA ULTRAVENT® filter systems reduce energy consumption for air purification in foundries by up to 80 % and protect effectively the environment. KMA already sold more than 2,000 ULTRAVENT® systems around the world.

Our three areas of business – Electronics Production Equipment, Moulding Machines and Automation – offer innovative solutions for the manufacturing industry. As technology leader with 15 facilities and production plants in Germany, China and in the USA, Kurtz Ersa repeatedly sets new standards, thereby raising the productivity of its customers to higher levels. Since 1982, Kurtz GmbH has been producing foundry machines. Kurtz enjoys an excellent reputation as expert in low pressure and gravity casting machines as well as for trimming presses. Especially suppliers of the automotive industry benefit from individually planned, cost-saving and reliable Kurtz machines. Technologies of Kurtz Automotive optimize the production of chassis parts and ensure a sustainable future in the long term
In the field of low pressure casting, Kurtz provides low pressure casting machines which are operated with permanent moulds and casting machines for sand, plaster or ceramic moulds – so called "lost moulds". Both aluminium and magnesium alloys can be cast with a Kurtz low pressure casting machine. Low pressure casting is one of the most efficient processes for manufacturing chassis parts in series production – especially with multiple cavities and multiple riser tubes. It is energy efficient, offers high availability and delivers top quality with minimal scrap rates.
For small batch sizes, special materials and complex geometries, additive manufacturing plays to its strength. Its tool-free production is the fastest way from the idea to the production of the metal part. Without any limits in design, the part can be printed according to your individual requirements to get exactly the application you need. Find out more about our metallic 3d laser printer Kurtz Ersa Alpha 140 – a plug'n produce machine with best price-performance ratio.
The machine concept of Kurtz trimming presses includes the Kurtz KPC line of so called C-frame presses and the Kurtz KPS line as 4-column version, available with or without sliding-tilting table. You can be sure to have safe, efficient and reproducible trimming processes due to the perfect interaction of fast hydraulics, precise mechanics, reliable measuring systems and comfortable machine control. Press force ranges from 50 t to 300 t, subject to model and layout.
From project planning and commissioning up to maintenance, from stand-alone machines up to entire plants. Kurtz GmbH always focuses on the entire process and already thinks of an optimized mould parting line for efficient trimming when designing and developing a casting mould or machine. If requested, both casting machines and trimming presses are available as fully automated systems. All components and modules are optimally matched to one another. At Kurtz the customer obtains planning, engineering, process and mould technology, melting and furnace technology, automation, peripherals as well as complete casting lines. Kurtz Automotive Solutions stand out by their technological lead, reliability, high availability and profitability.
Driven by Kurtz Ersa.
