Italian term or phrase: fusione di ghisa
Riduttore senza cambio con ingranaggi cementati, temeprati e rettificati contenuti in fusione di ghisa.

Il testo sarà validato dalla madrelingua, ma *fusione di ghisa*...cast-iron oppure foundry iron? C'è differenza? Qual è il termine esatto?
Grazie

cast iron
Explanation:
I've always know ghisa as cast iron and milanese policemen. I've never heard of a type of iron called foundry iron and Google here seems to confirm that many hits but with commas in the middle
