Why the foundry Lößnitz has invested in modern filter technology?

The Lößnitz foundry has a long tradition, good customers, but, unfortunately, it has also had an increasingly dissatisfied neighbourhood. When casting the huge tools it manufactures, fine dust and unpleasant odours are also produced, which pollute the environment. The residents were fed up with finding greasy soot on their laundry, windowsills, cars and garden furniture, and were commonly bombarded with unpleasant odours. When a decision was made to expand production in 2014, it became clear that the burden on employees and the neighbourhood had to be massively reduced. Kappa then developed a tailor-made system that efficiently and economically separates fine dust, soot and odours. The foundry is proud of it. The system is one-of-a-kind in Germany.

The art of metal grinding without grinding dust

In the past it was usual to give every piece of work an own artistic touch. Only then it was perfect. In times of serial production this is hardly possible. In metal grinding, however, the love for details can still be found in a way, which it is only found in handicrafts. The perfect surface after successful metal polishing paired with the individual touch of the processor still makes the component appear as a work of art with recurring patterns and a vivid surface.
