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
Dynamic growth through timely investments
Four years ago, the Polish materials supplier Metall-Expres commenced an investment program with the aim of broadening its scope from distribution to production. The opening of a new plant in 2018 was followed by a decision to procure an UPCAST® line for the continuous casting of oxygen-free copper rods. One of the key criteria for the procurement was the ability to reuse copper scrap from the production process.
