The Kühne Iron foundry is one of the oldest and continuously operating foundry plants in Hungary that has been in the operation since 1879. The annual capacity of the foundry exceeds  1 000 tons of ductile, grey and melleable cast iron. The foundry is equipped with the laboratories containing the metallographical microscope, the spectrometer and sand test appliances.

We provide professional advice to our customers in design of castings with CAD/CAM systems and casting simulation software. Our in-house pattern shop makes it possible to produce patterns for wood, plastic and metal. We also undertake the machining and surface treatment of our castings.

The Kühne Iron foundry holds the System of Quality Regulation Certificate EN ISO 9001:2015.

Quality castings
since 1879

In 1879, the KÜHNE Agricultural Machinery Factory established the most modern iron and metal foundry of its time.


1911-ben nagy volumenű fejlesztésről döntöttek, új öntöde építését és berendezéseinek korszerűsítését kezdték meg.

1917 –

From 1917, the new foundry began to work in the still used factory.


In 1937, the foundry had an area of 3540 m2, of which 2400 m2 was formed for manual and mechanical molding. A melting furnace of 4500 kg / h and 1000 kg / h was used for melting.


In the 1960s, a major leap forward was the introduction of the production of black-fringed castings. This made it possible to replace steel casting parts used primarily in agricultural machinery. This manufacturing technology was first implemented in Hungary here, so that the introduction of the manufacturing process did not require any investment.


The foundry became a part of the RÁBA Wagon and Machine Factory from 1976, and subsequently engaged in the production of engine and chassis castings.

1994 –

Since 1994, the foundry has been operating under the name KÜHNE Vasöntöde Kft. The foundry tries to take on the responsibility of being independent, adapting to changing circumstances and doing its best to maintain its market position and viability.
