Low pressure plants -
LPM GROUP today is a reality of more than 140 employees with decades of experience in the foundry low pressure die and gravity, casting machines, tool-making business and foundry equipments.
With the latest in technology and design and a staff capable of understanding the functions relative to machine and tooling, we offers our Customers the ability of resolving production problems with efficiency and timely manner.
Our low pressure casting machines (provided with the most updated technologies as automation, twin chamber furnaces and continues casting process) are designed to cast a variety of castings as wheels, cylinder heads, control arms, bedplates, etc., and conceived to minimise both cycle time and scrap rate with an increased reliability.
The corporate strategy is to support our Customer’s high volume casting production facilities with full services designing and engineering production tooling and equipment.
The die manufacturing Company member of LPM Group (UNIMOLDS) is composed by highly qualified Engineers and Workers (heritage of two World Wide known Companies) and state of the art manufacturing technology which are the basis of its strength, principally based on the experience achieved by each of our 65 employees in the manufacturing of tooling for the highly competitive OEM automotive industry, that requires best practice and the over all knowledge not only of the tool, but of the complete process and project. The Company is qualified to provide tooling for low pressure and gravity casting and core boxes for castings with single or multiple injection, with air or water cooling systems media, tool temperature control with electric heating systems or gas burners, availing itself of a vast range of hardware and software packages, and, in addition to the conventional equipment, machining media including high speed multi axis milling machines and coordinate measuring machine.
Other members of LPM Group are:
- GFS GRAVITY, located at Chivasso (TO), specialised in design and manufacturing of equipments and automatic cells for gravity castings (automotive sector) which has, in its production range, de-coring equipments too, thanks to several years of experience in foundry world;
- CORAM, the latest acquisition of the group, which was founded as a manufacturer of equipment for the aluminium foundry, where the metallurgical quality, always characterizing feature of this technique for the production of cast pieces must be maintained at very high levels even though, for market needs, there is a continuous search of economies on the process. In the years has developed a range of machines, including holding furnaces, melting furnaces, degassing and metallurgical treatments plants, and many others that after decades of experience made on the field can boast of having achieved the goal, which is to ensure all those who are the metallurgical aspects at the lowest cost of ownership, management and maintenance.
Last but not least, LPM Group is also capable to supply full turnkey packages combining machines, tooling and process technology and, in the years, this possibility has become another speciality that LPM can put at the Customers disposal.
Nowadays our machines can be found all over the world, confirming the contribution of LPM in upgrading the modern foundry process technologies with a blend of technology, materials knowledge, research and innovation.
