But what is die-casting?
Die-casting means to press liquid melt with high pressure and a very high mould filling speed into a permanent shape, in which the material then solidfies.
We produce each and every die-cast parts from aluminium and magnesium on horizontal cold-chamber die-casting machines.
Their closing pressure ranges from 260 up to 1,650 tons. We are using the following alloys:
- Al 226 - AlSi9Cu3
- Al 230 - AlSi12(Fe)
- Al 231 - AlSi12Cu1(Fe)
- Silafont 36 - AlSi10MnMg
- Castasil 37 - AlSi9MnMoZr
- AZ 91 HP - MgAl9Zn1(A)
- AM 50 - MgAl5Mn
- AM 60 - MgAl6Mn
We buy any die-cast moulds which are necessary for production from certified and reliable toolmakers. As we own machines of various sizes, we are in a position to gain an optimized cost/performance ratio by using the most appropriate tool size.
