With the use of conformal cooling channels, rather than straight ones, cycle time of the die casting process can be shortened, and the quality of the parts can be improved. But how can you find the ideal geometry of the channels?
Working at extreme forces in harsh foundry conditions, die-casting machines inevitably suffer from wear and tear. Remanufacturing can transform performance, extend return on investment and introduce state-of-the-art digital control.
According to a survey by the German Foundry Industry (BDG), 57 % of the German companies surveyed fear supply bottlenecks for preliminary products, auxiliary materials and raw materials in the future. The industry's feedback: Many international companies are able to deliver, and to offer their services despite the corona crisis. Who else supplies? Get an overview here!
Technological advances are key to increasing die-casting productivity. Digital technologies offer huge potential – enabling foundries to collect and analyze data – and create a clear path to future efficiencies.
In this ever-changing world, research and innovation is essential to address the different global challenges the world faces nowadays. The work presented here demonstrates that improvements in the mechanical properties of the alloy are achieved due to the incorporation of nanometric ceramic particles in the aluminum matrix.
Thanks to their inexpensive and efficient processes, companies offering die cast products are in a good position to gain new market share in the coming years. However, the journey is not an easy one - there are five challenges for companies to overcome.
Die Casting plays a key role in the transition to electric and hybrid mobility, which requires lighter and more complex structural car parts. Hear from Chris Guthrie, President of Trace Die Cast, and Jonathan Abbis, Managing Director of Bühler Die Casting, how to turn challenges into opportunities and contribute to more sustainable mobility.
Sales, market shares, export growth and declines: Between 2017 and 2018, the market of CEMAFON die casting and permanent mold machine manufacturers has seen some developments. Read in this article what exactly these trends look like.
