Metal finishing

Global Castings in Lem has in-house metal finishing including shot blasting, metallization and painting as well as an infrared paint drying facility. The factory complies with corrosion class up to C5 and is focused on short throughput time, down to as little as 24 hours.

Subassembly

Global Castings offers sub-assembly. The benefits are considerable for the OEM with reduction of inventory and management, as well as logistics savings. Global Castings has experience with e.g. assembling and shipping finished hubs to site.
