The brake discs of KOVIS are produced from grey and ductile cast iron, which are casted in-house, as well as from steel where castings are imported from reliable long-term suppliers. KOVIS has more than 150 years experiences with the production of different castings.

The products have been certified and approved according to international standards of UIC and EN, as well as manufactured strictly under thermal characteristics that allow discs outstanding performance of up to 200 km/h.

Together with technology partners KOVIS offers the flexibility, to develop appropriate projects with specific characteristics of customers. 

KOVIS has a fully automatic molding line, cleaning shop, automatic painting line and pattern shop. It has the most advanced technology of controlled and automated process of adding sand mixture and treatmend of exhaust gases.
