ATECSE3D is present in different industrial sectors thanks to the knowledge and experience in the study of various foundries.

Our potential in metallurgical Know How makes us a reference in qualities such as nodular ductile cast iron, gray cast iron, carbon steels, manganese steels and anti-wear/impact steels or martensitic white iron.

· Our ductile or nodular cast iron is characterized by its notable mechanical properties (elasticity, shock resistance, elongation...). We achieve these properties thanks to the control and the spheroidal or nodule shape of the graphite particles.

· Gray cast iron is a common alloy in engineering due to its relative low cost and good machinability, a result of the graphite bands that lubricate the cut and chip. It also has good wear resistance, because the graphite "flakes" serve as self-lubrication. It has good resistance to compression. Its mechanical properties are suitable for a large number of activities. It is a satisfactory material for machinery.

· Carbon steel is used for the manufacture of elements of machinery, engines, vehicles, parts, pipes, etc. In total, there are three subtypes of this steel: low, medium and high carbon steel, with a low carbon content of around 30%, medium with 0.60% and high with 1.5%. It has a mechanical resistance of 55-62 kg/mm² and a hardness of 150-170 HB. It is well tempered, reaching a strength of 80 kg/mm² and a hardness of 215-245 HB.

· Manganese steels are a unique non-magnetic steel, with extreme anti-wear properties. The material is very resistant to abrasion and its surface reaches up to three times its static hardness in impact conditions without any increase in its fragility, the latter characteristic that is usually associated with hardness. Manganese steel is used in the mining industry, concrete mixers, crushers, railway track apparatus, tracked vehicle treads and other abrasive environments. Also used in high impact environments.

White cast iron is cast iron in which all the carbon is combined in the form of cementite. Containing cementite makes them have great hardness and fragility, although they have great resistance to wear and abrasion. Due to its high fragility and lack of machinability, its application is very limited. For this reason, they are usually used in those cases where ductility is not a main requirement, such as, for example, in inner jackets of concrete mixers, in lining plates of crushing mills or in rollers. It can also be used to manufacture counterweights, such as those used for elevators or other means of lifting loads.
