The Company

Founded in 1959, IMR is an SME which designs and manufactures foundry equipment for brass alloys and bronze. The company also offers its customers dedicated consulting services for the design of moulds and other manufacturing processes. In 80% of cases, IMR's equipment is used for the production of taps and valves and 20% for other high-performance artefacts. The moulds mounted on the installation are filled by injecting the liquid metal at temperatures of about 1,000°C. The inside of the moulds for casting comprises preformed cores in sand.
