ADI: a growth opportunity for everyone
THE BENEFITS OF AUSTEMPERING WITH ZANARDI
Our technological proposal
We produce and offer to the market all grades of austempered cast iron (ADI) in the respective international standards (ISO17804, EN1564 and ASTMA897 / A897M) as well as other grades of materials such as Austemperato Gray Iron (AGI) and austempered steel. We also make a new technological proposal patented by us, the IDI grade (Isothermed Ductile Iron), available to the foundries.
A BUSINESS ON THE CUTTING EDGE
For 30 years we have been the go-to specialists in Austempering, a driving force behind the development of the cast iron foundry market.
EXPERT TECHNICAL SUPPORT
We contribute to achieve the maximum efficacy during the product design and commissioning stages.
a business on the cutting edge
Austempered ductile iron (ADI) offers machinery makers a valid alternative to steel components, maximizing value for money in a wealth of different applications.
Working for the customer, together
We offer foundries the technological support they need to satisfy their customers. We are a unique interlocutor when it comes to the concept, design, development and certification of materials.
Expert Technical Support
We work with foundries to define their product requirements and in process optimisation across the board. A technical partnership that allows even those who are unfamiliar with all of the technology to overcome the typical difficulties of the development stages.
Experience in the field
For 30 years we have been in the front line when it comes to research and development in the field of Austempering as a technological innovation in the field of ferrous materials, actively collaborating with significant academic institutes and taking part in international committees for standardisation of material.
Top Performance Systems
We use 3 AFC-Holcroft UBQA 36-72-36 furnaces that allow us to achieve excellent results in terms of process repeatability. We can treat items up to 840x1705x890 mm in size, for weights up to 1.000 kg and different batches, from small lots to automotive volumes.
Our metallurgic laboratory is equipped to provide you with full certification of austempered material. We are able to carry out mechanical tests, micrographic analysis, hardness tests and impact tests up to -40°C, internally.
quality, efficiency, reliability
Our history as a foundry began in 1931, near Verona (Italy).
YEARS IN AUSTEMPERING
Long-standing experience in heat treatment research and development.
Quality and Repetability
Thanks to modern and efficient heat treatment systems that can guarantee process stability, we can offer quality and repeatable material characteristics. Sharing product requirements with customer foundries is a cornerstone of our contract Austempering service.
Thanks to years of experience in the production of austempered ductile iron, we are able to offer foundries dedicated support when it comes to the definition of chemical analysis, with the aim of reducing the use of alloying elements and the complexity of metallurgical management.
A complete Service
We work with foundries to define their product requirements and in process optimisation across the board. Our metallurgy laboratory is equipped to allow us to supply full certification for austempered material.
