The company and its main competence
The Michenfelder Elektrotechnik GmbH & Co. KG belongs to one of the worlds leading companies in the field of quality assurance for moulding sand reclamation. The company develops, produces and sells fully automated moisture control and sand testing systems which make it possible to control, regulate and analyse on point all critical moulding sand parameters online.
Technology, service, field competence and experience of the founder und his employees are convincing since 1976 to many foundry plants and foundry plant equipment distributors all over the world. Michenfelder is partner for equipment distributors and plant contractors for new moulding sand preparation and reclamation plant concepts as well as direct contact partner to foundry plants for moulding sand quality systems modernisation.
To bear the challenge of modern casting Michenfelder is vehemently advancing the wholistic approach. That means, moulding sand should be monitored as continuously as possible, from the separation of castings and sand to the moulding machine, and its quality following the casting process should be carefully built up again. Against this background, Michenfelder, with its modular moulding sand management system FoMaSys, has made a real breakthrough.
