Engineering competence from a single supplier ¨C The holistic approach pays off

Engineering is a wide-ranging field in which Siempelkamp has no limits. In close cooperation with the customer, we implement consulting, design, planning, and further development of production processes, in order to achieve optimised cast components. Basically, you tell us your requirements on the workpiece, and Siempelkamp will provide you with an optimal solution. We provide our services both for individual components and for entire assemblies.

Engineering service chain:

The first link in our service chain is consulting during material selection. Alongside materials development, the optimization and customer-specific adaptation of the material is our focus.

State-of-the-art methods for the calculation of cast components and the simulation of manufacturing processes are the foundation of material selection. The close interaction between product properties and the manufacturing process guarantees an optimized design for the cast product.

Calculation process:

  • Static, dynamic, thermal analyses
  • Mold filling & solidification
  • Internal stress & distortion
  • Shape optimization 

The design of a cast component is also shaped by the Siempelkamp engineering team. From the first draft, to the finished drawing, to the appraisal drawing, and ultimately to the technical specifications, we are a reliable partner.

Project ¡°Megawind¡± on the upswing: Siempelkamp Giesserei is awarded Research and Innovation Prize

Siempelkamp Giesserei is contributing towards the new means of energy conversion in a highly specialized industry. This has been noted across the industries. In 2010, IHK Mittlerer Niederrhein (the Chamber of Industry and Commerce of Middle Lower Rhine) awarded the Research and Innovation Prize to the company: they achieved first place for their new material for structural components of wind turbines.

Synergy effects ¨¤ la Siempelkamp: Carefree package deal for EUROPIPE

Customer-specific development, optimization of cast components, all in close coordination with the choice of material ¨C the fields of work of the Siempelkamp Giesserei (Siempelkamp Foundry) are complex. Taken all together, the result is a genuine chain of services whose links are stabilized within the entire Siempelkamp Group. How it works is shown by a project for EUROPIPE in Dunkirk, France. Here, the assignment was to change a crossbeam for a pipe-forming press over from cast steel to ductile cast iron.
