Metallurgical competence and expertise at the HA CoC

At the HA Center of Competence, experienced HA engineers have access to a comprehensive range of technical facilities for consulting and development in the field of metallurgy.


Among the unique services provided by the HA CoC is the fully integrated examination of casting defects and support in solving foundry problems. Using a cutting-edge spectrometer, HA is able to analyse samples from melts of all common Fe- and NE/L-based cast materials. In order to measure the active oxygen content in cast iron, steel and copper melts, the CoC uses a portable Celox Foundry from Heraeus. A special measuring station also allows HA’s experts to conduct thermal analyses of cast iron alloys. The CoC even has an MK “melt tester” to analyse non-ferrous cast materials. This allows us to conduct thermal analyses, corrosion tests and determine the density index of Al-based melts.
