The TOS MET foundry is one of the most modern foundries of this type and size on the Central European market. The tradition of grey cast iron production reaches back to 1910 when the foundry was part of a family Volman company, which was one of the first manufacturers of machine tools in Bohemia. The foundry business first greatly extended in 1935-6.The existing foundry was built in the early 1960s and it was put into service in 1962. For a long time, the foundry was a part of the traditional Czech manufacturer of turning machines and cutters for gearing, TOS a.s. Čelákovice.
The independent history of the foundry dates back to 1995. The TOS MET slévárna a.s. is a one-hundred percent affiliated company of ZPA Pečky a.s. We produce grey cast and spherulitic iron in the weight range of 5 to 12,000 kg technology allows in serial, small-scale production of castings as well as single-piece production. The foundry is equipped with complete technology for production of castings from grey cast and spherulitic iron in a quality according to 150-300 (GG15-30) and EN GJS 400-700 (GGG40-70). The nominal performance of the foundry is 21,000 tons of cast iron per year, but the real performance in continuous operation is 18,000 tons of castings per year.The foundry conforms to all standards and regulations in the ecological sphere.
The castings are traditionally bought by customers from engineering industry (supports, stands, spindle heads, turning carriages, etc.), power engineering (boilers, valves and fixtures, etc.), water-supply engineering (pump bodies, valves), graphic-arts industry (components for printing machines such as sideboards, gearboxes, etc.), car industry (brake drums, brake discs, wheel hubs); the foundry also delivers castings for gearboxes in shipbuilding, wood-processing machines, casings for wind generators and other commercial castings from many other spheres and disciplines. A large portion of the production is used by the mother company ZPA Pečky (gearbox casings, blower casings, rotors, covers, etc.).
