Today’s society moves at a fast pace; products become obsolete within a year and many are mass-produced, usually in the Far East. Skeppshult is based on a different premise; they have made products by hand since 1906 according to ancient methods and traditions.
Together with other metals in carefully controlled amounts in our induction furnaces. This process creates the glowing cast iron, the foundation for Skeppshult products. We care about our environment, and Skeppshult uses only electricity from wind and hydropower.
Casting the molten iron requires special moulds that can withstand extreme temperatures. Metal tools such as those used in casting aluminium and other materials would not withstand molten cast iron and therefore we use sand moulds that have been compressed under several tons of pressure. The composition of the sand is very important and something we put a lot of time into.
With 100 years of experience, Skeppshult have found the right composition that can both hold the hot cast iron and provide the right structure in the cast metal. Two halves of the sand moulds are pressed together, which creates a cavity for the molten cast iron.
The casting master pours the iron by hand; it takes experience and precision for the castings to meet our requirements at Skeppshult.
The foundry oversees the work done at each stage of casting to ensure that they live up to Skeppshult’s high quality standards. Products deemed substandard are sorted out and recycled into the next cast iron melt so they can become new products. Cast iron items with only minor cosmetic defects are classified as sub-standard and are sold at the factory store here at Skeppshult at reduced prices.
Made with only naturally pure ingredients, Skeppshult’s cast iron is an environmentally friendly and healthy alternative to today’s plastic-coated aluminium pans. Skeppshult’s cast iron can withstand very high temperatures; the bottoms of the pans are concave to compensate for metal expansion when heated and thus they do not become round when they are heated.
