UPCAST® is the leading supplier of upward continuous casting technology for a wide range of non-ferrous applications.
First in upcasting
The upward continuous casting method, better known as the UPCAST® system, was originally developed within the Finnish Outokumpu Group in the late ’60s. The outcome resulted from a synthesis of innovative thinking and long production experience.
Always green. Now greener.
UPCAST® technology in itself, has always been an environmentally friendly process. Just electricity, compressed air and a cooling water circulation are needed to keep the process running
The coming decades of copper
The coming decades will bring along technology leaps and major changes to many energy related technologies. The world will see a shift of paradigm, and we will be surprised about the range, variety, scale and speed of the changes. In these changes, copper will play a significant role, due to its unique conductivity, durability and recyclability, writes Pia Voutilainen, Director at Scandinavian Copper Development Association.
