The plant now extends on 66.000 sq m covered surface and 102.000 sq m total surface. The foundry counts 34 pressure die-casting machines with clamping force ranging from 800 to 3000 ton.

The tools design and construction, considered strategic for the production process, are located in Lumezzane plant.

Since 2000 it has been created next to the foundry department of Mechanical Machining, which allows you to complete the production cycle of cast aluminum and follow the requirements of our customers.

Today Foma with its fleet of 34 presses is one of the biggest realities in Europe in aluminum die casting.
