The foundry group DGS Druckguss Systeme AG decided to invest in rheocasting equipment from Comptech to improve the launch of new products. In addition, both companies agreed to mutually develop the rheocasting process and its applications.
DGS Druckguss Systeme AG, an internationally operating specialist for aluminium and magnesium die casting, has opened a new production hall in Switzerland. In the new hall, capacities for large components are to be created.
Although aluminum automotive structural parts are still considered relatively new product lines in China, DGS China invested in an aluminum die casting plant from Norican, so that they can produce large and complex automotive parts for one of the most dynamic economic markets.
In order to meet the requirements of the growing world market for complex aluminum castings, aluminum-specific systems must interact harmoniously. Italpresse Gauss demonstrates the advantages of high-pressure and sand casting.
Hybrid car bodies made of steel and aluminium have established themselves in Europe. DGS has demonstrated its competence by supplying large structural aluminium castings for the body of the new Mercedes C-Class. The company’s next step is to establish suitable production and logistics structures.
