Application

Parts for a cable brake system. This brake system is used as a safety component when hoisting platforms. It is also used in windmills and for washing windows in tall buildings.

Advantages

  • No post-processing required
  • CIREX delivers a product ready to be built in
  • All product functionalities are incorporated into a single casting

Advantage of the CIREX casting process

Previously, the component was executed as a welded structure consisting of multiple steel parts for assembly. The product has been restructured so that all product functionalities are integrated into a single cast piece. The lost wax casting process makes complex shapes possible. Furthermore, the precise tolerances of this casting process mean post-processing is not required. Executed in an extremely wear-resistant steel alloy with a high coefficient of elasticity. CIREX delivers this component ready to be built in, including heat treatment and galvanisation.
