region, our company has dedicated itself to metal processing from its earliest days. Otto Junker established his enterprise to market the water-cooled mould invented by his father. In the years that followed our company’s founder dedicated his efforts to the development and production of innovative machinery and equipment, maintaining close relations with the Technical university of Aachen (RWTH) all the time in the awareness that continuous technical development is indispensable for a Company’s success.

Furthermore, Otto Junker is also a leading European High-Grade Stainless Steel Foundry producing a wide range of high-quality castings. The materials, mainly high- alloys and based on FE, Ni and Co, are melted in efficient induction furnaces and, where necessary, under vacuum. These products are supplied in as-cast, rough-machined or finish-machined condition for all fields of application requiring high-alloyed materials, such as pumps, valves, centrifuges, machines for food industry, turbines, mixers, mills, furnaces, units for naval shipbuilding, research and development, environmental units, semiconductors etc.
