The cast model iron exhibition
The cast model exhibition provides an overview of Forsvik’s diverse production of cast iron objects.
From the late 1800s until 1977, the production of cast iron products was the most prominent business at Forsviks bruk. Everything from pans to ship portholes was made here.
The wooden models needed for casting were built by Forsvik Bruk’s model carpenter. The imprint they left in the casting sand became a mould into which the molten metal was poured.
