MCC International, a subsidiary of Austria-based ESW, has added 10,000 square feet to its foundry building in Cecil that will put it on the beam for large scale I-beam construction by its customers. The company made the capital investment to meet growing demand worldwide for large bi-metallic spun cast sleeves used in metals production facilities.

MCC’s new melting facilities feature a vertical spin caster that can produce bi-metallic spun cast sleeves in diameters up to 60 inches and in lengths up to 44 inches. The sleeves can weigh up to 13 tons.

“This significant upgrade allows us to use the most modern technology while improving worker safety and operating efficiencies at the same time,” said Trevor Dunthorne, MCC International’s president and CEO. “With our new equipment, we’re able to supply the world’s largest beam mills in North America, Europe, Asia and South America with rings they can use to roll the largest section I-beams used in the construction industry.”

According to a press release, by manufacturing metallurgically superior bi-metallic spun cast rings to replace static cast mono block rings, MCC is able to provide mill builders and I-beam manufacturers with a product that can deliver superior performance over a longer lifespan.

MCC International specializes in the casting and finish machining of high grade, centrifugally cast ferrous and non-ferrous products, including rolling mill sleeves, bearing parts, bi-metallic gear blanks, bushings, nuts and valve bodies. The castings are used in a variety of applications, including steel mills, power transmission lines and elevators.

The company was founded nearly 60 years ago by William H. Miller as Miller Centrifugal Casting. Since 2009, MCC International has been a subsidiary of Austria-based ESW (Eisenwerk Sulzau-Werfen), a manufacturer of rolling mill rolls. ESW is headquartered in Tenneck, Austria, near Salzburg.
