CRONING LIVARNA® is known for its 400 years traditional steelmaking and casting. Throughout its development, shifts have been seen from a simple geometry of castings made of unalloyed steels into more demanding and complex product constructions using low & high-alloyed cast steel. CRONING LIVARNA® custom manufacturing capabilities include: Die Casting, Fabrication, Investment Casting, Machining, Sand Mold Casting and are ISO 9001 certified.

Key Products

Ravne ima za sabo skoraj 400 let bogate tradicije na področju jeklarstva in livarstva. Skozi različna obdobja razvoja livarstva so bili opazni premiki iz proizvodnje enostavnih, manj zahtevnih geometrij ulitkov iz nelegiranih jeklenih litin v izdelavo tehnološko zahtevnejših konstrukcij izdelkov iz nizko in visoko legiranih jeklenih litin.
