MLZ foundry was founded in the early 1990s as a production base for the research and development institute of special-property steels and superalloys.
There are a lot of innovative methods that were actively implemented at the plant. Over time, MLZ foundry reorganized into separate enterprises with a casting workshop using Lost Foam technology that is able to produce up to 300 metric tons of casting products per month weighing from 0.1 to 1000 kilograms.
MLZ foundry is a 100% Lost Foam foundry
Lost Foam technology is a unique casting process that is perfectly suited to the production of castings that are geometrically complex. The process is locked up in the casting pattern producing of expandable polystyrene. During the pouring, the flowing melted metal vaporises the foam pattern and at the same time precisely fills the resulting hollow space. In this way, an exact metallic copy of the foam pattern is created. In addition to geometrical complexity, castings that are made using Lost Foam technology have a high-end surface quality and size precision.
Advantages of Lost Foam technology:
MLZ foundry workshops are equipped according to the highest standards, including induction furnaces from 250 to 2500 kilograms as well as modern laboratory facilities for the chemical analysis and physical properties control.
The molding line is equipped with an automatic sand regeneration system (cooling, fine fraction separation, magnetic cobber).
Standard flask sizes of 600х600х600mm, 1000х1000х1000mm, 1200х1200х1500mm, 2000х600х2000mm are used at MLZ Foundry, but they are able to create flasks of other sizes for producing custom outsized castings.
Currently, MLZ foundry is producing castings made of the following metals and alloys:
- gray cast iron
- alloyed special quality cast iron
- ductile iron
- carbon steel
- low carbon steel
- heat resistant steel
- low-alloy steel
- special quality steel
Quality management system certified according with international standard compliance ISO 9001:2015.
MLZ Foundry's cast products are used in most diverse manufacturing sectors, from machine-building and energy industries, to consumer products and ornamental / art castings.

The history of the LIAZ pattern shop dates back to 1907 and is directly linked to the beginnings of the automotive industry and the establishment of the RAF Company in Liberec. By the 1990´s the production of pattern equipment and molds for the foundry industry was the main subject of activity.
Following the privatization and the technological redevelopment in 1996 the LIAZ Pattern Shop was fully integrated into the European (world) automotive industry and gradually became a recognized technological and innovative workplace dedicated to the production of tools and jigs for the automotive industry.
Over the past years we, in the prototype and serial production of the automotive industry, have collected a number of processes and technologies, particularly in the area of processing of polyurethanes and plastic materials that can be further applied in other fields (aeronautics, power engineering, design and architecture).
Today, the main activity of the company consists in the development, design and production of parts, tools and jigs for the automotive, power engineering and aerospace industries.
We provide services primarily in the following areas:
The LIAZ pattern shop is a purely Czech company with approx. 110 employees. Owners are directly involved in the management of the company, by which the company aims to provide the maximum performance according to customer requirements. We are pleased to work with cutting-edge technologies for customers with demanding requirements.
The technology development of the company has been encouraged by the cooperation on research projects within the Czech Republic and EU countries. Within the research and design projects the LIAZ pattern shop processes new technologies in areas of computer science, management, material engineering and tool-making.
