Expert in the shaping of ferrous alloys












Our technical expertise allows us to produce several types of cast iron:  Ductile (spheroidal graphite), Grey, Alloyed (Cr, Ni-Hard, Ni-Resist) and also cast steels: Carbon, Stainless, Duplex, Alloy.



Molding and core-making




Using patterns made within the pattern shop, mold cavities are formed from chemically-bonded sand, into which molten metal will subsequently be poured.

Groupe CIF has several cast iron and steel molding sites equipped with large-capacity sand mixers, suitable for making a wide range of casting molds, whether in smaller flasks or larger pits.



Heat treatment



Our modern equipment, which includes several gas and electric furnaces, enables a wide range of treatments for carbon, alloy, and stainless steels, as well as white or spheroidal graphite iron, thus meeting the majority of our customers’ requirements:


- Tempering

- Normalizing

- Forced-air quenching

- Water quenching/rapid quenching
