The history of MCM-Casting
The qualified toolmaker Gunter Zepp studied mechanical engineering at the University of Applied Sciences in Mannheim. After his studies he gained important experience in different areas. After work preparation, material disposition, machine programming he applied for the technical acceptance of safety valves. As a works expert in the field of valves, he was appointed to various standards committees. For several years he was in charge for the technical acceptance for safety and control valves, butterfly valves, gate valves, hydrants as well as oval wheel and water meters.
As head of quality, Gunter Zepp was responsible for all approvals, such as ISO 9000, KTA, ASME. His area of responsibility also included destructive and non-destructive testing. A special chapter was the approval and certification of suppliers and the qualification of foundries. His enthusiasm for casting technology and the machining of castings was evident at an early stage and continues to this day.
He was able to use this acquired knowledge with great success when setting up castings purchasing in Asia for a large pump manufacturer.
