SGTube – On top of development

Casting of copper tubes has been possible with the UPCAST® technology already since late 70’s. However, only through innovation and consistent research and development work UPCAST was able to reduce the size of the cast grain to achieve this ideal and small enough grain structure required for optimal drawing process and as the result, for the quality of art end products.

UPCAST® R&D work is carried out by UPCAST® experts at the company´s own Pilot Plant. UPCAST® is determined to stay on top of the development in its field and is continuously looking for new products and applications to meet the changing requirements of the customers and markets.

The focus is both with the existing customers searching for continuous improvements and with the future looking for the new.

About us

Company details

UPCAST OY - Exclusive supplier of the original UPCAST®-technology

The upward continuous casting method - better known simply as UPCAST® - was originally developed by the Finnish Outokumpu Group in the late '60s. This revolutionary technology was the outcome of innovative thinking and solid production experience. The first UPCAST® production line - still in use - was installed in 1971 at the group's own facilities in Pori. Since those times nearly 200 casting lines have been delivered worldwide making UPCAST® the undisputed market leader in its field.

As a result of Outokumpu Group's decision to divest its copper business a new, independent company called UPCAST OY was established in 2006 to carry the UPCAST® legacy into the future. Central to this legacy has always been an innovative spirit as well as a strong commitment to customer support.

At the birth of UPCAST OY it was decided to intensify R&D activities. One fine outcome stemming from this strategic decision is our new UPCAST®-SGTube system producing thin-walled copper tubes ready for direct drawing. We have also just recently doubled the size of our testing facilities. This allows us to step up our R&D work even further which is good news to all "UPCAST®-family" members.
