Casting molds are used for manufacturing raw materials such as stainless steel, which then is further processed by rolling or forging. The casting molds are also made of steel and are consumed by the high thermal stress after approximately 100 cycles. The ongoing demand for replacement of these large parts for production is primarily provided by rail.
