Foundry & machining

Located in Lubumbashi, our machining workshop, AMF (formerly FONDAF), makes a wide range of machined parts in steel and alloy steel including stainless steel, cast iron and bronze. Besides the casting infrastructure, we have a wide range of specific moulds, in particular for the wear parts of pumps (wheels, diffusers, sleeves, bushings, bearings, etc.), for cast iron, bronze, brass or anti-friction metal.
