Why Choose Mineral Casting

Mineral Casting is not just a replacement for traditional castings and steel structures but a preferred material in many precision requirement machines.

Mineral castings, also known as artificial granite, have excellent vibration-damping properties, high dimensional accuracy, corrosion resistance, low expansion coefficient, low thermal conductivity, low moisture absorption, strong electrical insulation, and anti-magnetic properties. With the advantages of flexibility, short processing cycles, strong repairability, and perfect combination with any material, it has been recognized by design engineers throughout the world and become the key structural material used in high-precision machinery at home and abroad. It will replace cast iron and natural granite in the future.

StableTek Mineral Castings

StableTek is a technology enterprise focusing on high-performance mineral castings. Its predecessor was the Swiss Gurit Mineral Parts Division.

  • 1835 Gurit was founded in Wattwil, Switzerland

  • 1999 Listed on the Swiss Stock Exchange

  • 2000 Began working on the world's most advanced composite materials

  • 2013 Started Mineral Castings business with similar materials at Gurit Mold

  • 2015 Mineral casting business established a factory in Wittlingen, Germany

  • 2015 Acquired the 35-year-old German trickes company of mineral castings

  • 2019 Gurit Mineral Castings merges into StableTech

Molding Ability and Integration Ability of Complex Shapes

There are differences in the process flow and material properties of traditional cast iron, mineral castings cast various in complex shapes that cannot be cast by traditional cast iron. The more complex shapes can also be achieved by using special adhesives to bond mineral castings, to obtain ideal shapes. Mineral castings have a solid ability to integrate, such as pipes, shapes, guide rails, cables, oil pipes, air pipes, connectors, etc. that convey cutting fluids can be cast into mineral castings, saving users a lot of assembly and machining time, significantly improving the user's production efficiency and economic benefits.

1. Vibration Analysis
The  Ability to Absorb Vibration:

Our products are designed with the latest technology, providing a higher vibration attenuation rate and an impressive capacity for absorbing vibrations in comparison to traditional cast iron materials. This technology helps us provide products that are more reliable, longer lasting and, ultimately, more cost-effective.
