When expertise meets enthusiasm.

Every part is an award winner.

Passion makes us unmistakable. As we don’t just offer quality and accuracy, but investment cast at its very best too. Made by people who understand their craft. High-quality like a unique items – and yet always ready for a series. Precision remains the same. With a quality guarantee that a series production needs. And the flexibility that makes it fit for the future.

PROTECT YOUR PRODUCTION in times of crisis!

Your partner with domestic production!

Schubert & Salzer Feinguß Lobenstein GmbH takes the corona crisis very seriously. We monitor daily developments and do our best to offer you the usual service and to maintain a stable delivery. Thanks to our regional sources of supply, our extensive and intensive precautionary measures, but also due to our rural location, we can handle the procurement risks well with our domestic production.

No fear of closed borders!

The  Virus SARS-CoV-2 meets us all with new challenges. In China and also in Europe, entire cities are quarantined. Flight bans were pronounced and the borders closed.

Production has come to a standstill in many companies worldwide. How long the condition will last cannot be estimated. There are noticeable delivery obstacles. Many European companies are already feeling the effects. The current situation reveals the vulnerability of global value chains. In previous crises, for example in the SARS epidemic, Chinese courts have repeatedly judged Force Majeure in favor of Chinese producers when it comes to compensation claims. The complete procurement of components from such countries can pose high procurement risks in times of crisis.

Partial production in Germany helps to make your risks manageable.

Your back-up production in Germany!

If you experience delivery bottlenecks or even a delivery standstill from international sources, we can help very quickly and easily. Feinguss Lobenstein is able to set up an alternative process chain in the shortest possible time. Sufficient production capacities and personnel are available for fast, high-quality production. Even without tool production, we can, if necessary, manufacture certified castings in-house from additive manufacturing. In our in-house tool production, we can produce alternative tools in the shortest possible time. We have all production and testing options available in the Bad Lobenstein foundry.

Use our German manufacturing as an active part of your risk management! We are here for you!

When expertise meets passion

We are passionate about your success. Perfection is our maxim. Whether it’s highly complex or extremely delicate – we find the optimal product for every product. It doesn’t matter if you only require an unfinished part from us or CNC processing including surface treatment. Or if you assign full assembly fitting to us. We offer you everything from a single source.

Your individual requirements are law as far as we are concerned. We develop a precisely accurate and cost-effective solution in discussions with you.

  • Engineering


    Have you ever wondered what constitutes the real art of engineering? It’s a combination of experience and creativity, tradition with state-of-the-art technology. There’s also the ability to always think in a new way to develop extraordinary ideas and amazing solutions. And all that at predictable, reasonable prices. Get ready to be surprised.

  • Rapid prototyping

    Do you really need to get a move on? Then we offer rapid prototyping. Physical materials can be manufactured from digital data with this 3D printing method – at high speed.

  • Investment casting

    Being innovative is what we do on a daily basis. We aren’t one of the most state-of-the-art customer-focused investment casting plants in Europe for nothing, and we deliver cast parts from an exceptionally large range of standardised and customer-specific types of steel.

  • Further processing

    We don’t just see ourselves as casters, we also take on various steps in the finishing process. For instance, our services include mechanical, thermal, electro-chemical or physical treatment of your cast part. Just hire us to do further processing. As a system supplier, we offer you all services from a single source, in a straightforward manner.

After the sample parts have been approved by the customer,...

  • Quality assurance

    Quality is our top priority. We work according to international standards with quality management systems DIN EN ISO 9001:2015, DIN EN ISO 14001:2015 and VDA 6.1:2016. Optimising manufacturing processes, regulated organisation structures, great relationships with customers and suppliers: We continually make sure of this – and thereby ensure...

  • Documentation

    Transparency in the manufacturing process is important to us. This is because, as a customer, you should be able to feel safe in the knowledge that our material meets your requirements at all times. That’s why we place importance on comprehensive documentation that accurately shows all requirements for the product. You can check this at any time...


When quality creates excitement

Whether it’s really small or particularly large, weighing just a few grams or sixty kilos, with an incredibly complex shape or simple elegance: Or investment casting parts are as individual as the requirements they are made for. It doesn’t matter if it’s in the ICE, in an Airbus, in the lab or the x-ray machine: Our products are reliable, tailor-made and precise.
