Total solution

CIREX delivers total solutions for precision casting in steel. We consider ourselves a ’one-stop-shop’ supplier and, if so desired, deliver a product that is completely ready to be built in. In addition to producing precision castings this includes finishings for cast pieces, the assembly of sub-components and the performance of heat treatments and surface treatments. After this, each component can be marked with laser engraving or cleaned if the component must satisfy a particular purity specification. Most of the activities are performed in CIREX’s own factories. External specialists are hired as necessary.

The great advantage that CIREX provides is that you purchase a completely finished product. This eliminates problems with the coordination of and communication with suppliers. This also applies to agreements concerning quality problems and product liabilities. By assigning a product to a single supplier, your contact person can always immediately provide information about the progress of all the products you ordered in the various phases of the production process.

This unburdens you completely and you are assured of high-quality precision castings. CIREX has the specialised in-house knowledge concerning finishings, heat and surface treatments and assembly. We also have a large network of suppliers, which allows us always to offer you the best price level (TCO).
