"ROC" The brand

Using our ROC Mineral cast technology, we are producing high precision clamping towers, clamping pallets, grid towers, grid pallets as well as customized items. A production process devised according to newest technological requirements and a modern, air-conditioned production hall guarantees highest quality products.

Advantages with ROC Mineral casting
  • Excellent attenuation-attributes (6-10 times better then Grey iron)
  • Low thermal conductivity, ROC® Mineral cast is reacting very slowly to temperature changes
  • Chemically and mechanically resistant against aggressive as well as abrasive medias
  • No corrosion
  • Design independence for creating any forms
  • Possibility to integrate inserts like heavy-anchors, air or hydraulic parts
  • Very little specific weight, lighter then aluminum
  • Pleasant surface, no paintwork necessary
  • About 30% lifetime increase of machining tools

Please note that ROC Mineral cast is heaving a low tensile- and impact strength, but with a suitable design we improve this characteristics.
