Die castings made of aluminium

Die castings made of aluminium

Due to its low weight and high specific strength, aluminium is excellently suited for lightweight construction, for the automotive, aviation and aerospace industries. The mechanical properties of aluminium such as tensile strength, hardness and thermal conductivity surpass those of the lighter magnesium. Aluminium is extremely corrosion resistant. This self-protection can be further enhanced by methods such as coating. Another advantage of aluminium is its electrical conductivity and magnetic neutrality, which is why it is often used for the construction of electronic components.

Post-processing
More

Our integrated concept in the production of die-cast components pays off for our customers in several respects. The sensible chaining of downstream production steps guarantees maximum process reliability and high transparency in process control. By offering the entire process as a system provider from a single source, we achieve the shortest possible turnaround times. This reduces costs and unnecessary losses.

Surface treatment
More

Of course, the vertical scope of manufacturing depicted in our foundry’s line of services also includes plastering and finishing of surfaces. For toolmaking, we already take into account the final surface treatment that will be carried out on the component, which may involve a coating on the casting. The advantage that our holistic approach has for our customers is also evident here.

Die castings made of
magnesium

Aluminium is two-thirds lighter than steel, and magnesium is one-third lighter than aluminium. So magnesium products are well-suited for use in the automotive industry and especially in motor sports. Magnesium components are also characterised by increased damping, which can result in reduced vibration and noise emission. Among other things, there are gearbox and clutch housings, cylinder head covers, body parts, steering wheel rims, heat sinks, electronics housings and screen housings, which are produced using the magnesium die-casting process.
