Die Casting for Automotive Additional Production Capacity at Sander Druckguss
Sander Druckguss invests in another casting cell with a clamping force of 6,500 kN. A new production hall with further new production facilities will be built for this purpose.
Sander Druckguss, specialist for aluminium and zinc die casting, has invested in another casting cell. The new machine from the northern Italian die-casting machine manufacturer OMS Presse has a clamping force of 6,500 kN. According to the supplier, this allows more flexibility in the manufacturing process, both in terms of the size and weight of the components and in the design of multiple cavities for the die casting tools.
The new production hall is currently being prepared for the installation of the system. Here, the complete infrastructure for operating the casting cell has to be rebuilt. In addition, Sander is also implementing a vacuum dosing system from Meltec in Austria. The entire plant will be supplemented by a new melting furnace from Ofenbau Ley in Lüdenscheid. Up to five new jobs are to be created by the new casting plant. According to the company, a customer has already placed an order for large quantities of parts to be produced on the new casting plant.
