"Brass casting"

"Guss" ist not just cast-iron but cast anything in a technical context. My first thought was "Meehanite-Sandguss" which is a proprietary casting process (details in the URL below) but considering the subject is electrical engineering I suspect the expansion of "MS-Guss" is a banal "Messing-Guss" which in your case would translate to "a brass casting". The second URL is from a company which manufacures parts out of "ST-Guss, AL-Guss, MS-Guss" ie, iron, aluminium and brass castings.
