Equipment and Machinery Design Award Hong Kong Awards for Industry: Die Casting Unit Wins
Recently, the 2019 Hong Kong Awards for Industries was held and the list of winners was announced. An intelligent die casting unit developed by LK Group won the Equipment and Machinery Design Award.
The annual Hong Kong Awards for Industry is a major event for Hong Kong's business community. The DCC5000 large-scale intelligent die casting unit developed by LK Group won the Equipment and Machinery Design Award. Ms. Lucia Liu, assistant to the chairman of the board of Lijin Group, represented the company at the ceremony and received the award.
The review committee of the conference pointed out that DCC5000 is the die casting machine for commercial production with the largest clamping force among similar products in the world. The finished product can meet the requirements of lightweight, waterproof, sturdy and high thermal conductivity, among which the traditional manufacturing method of battery shell. It is welded by multiple workpieces, which requires a lot of labor and defects caused by manual workmanship. Therefore, using this machine can reduce labor costs, shorten production time and increase production efficiency.
Since 2017, LK Group has started to design and develop the 5,000-ton intelligent die casting unit, which was delivered to Anhui Magma Technology Co., Ltd., a domestic auto parts research and development manufacturer in 2018. According to the company's general manager Dai Lin, the DCC5000 die casting unit is used in the company's new energy vehicle battery case production, which reflects the advantages of intelligence, high efficiency, stability, environmental protection and energy saving. The company's new products can be fluently produced, and it can continue to develop new-generation electric vehicle batteries to provide more efficient energy supply for new energy vehicles. The energy-saving servo system and the control system, which can save cooling water and power consumption by more than 50 %, control the production process in real time and enable remote monitoring, were also rated positively.
With the rapid development of electric vehicles and the trend of lightweight designs, the demand for large aluminum-magnesium alloy structural components has increased. The die casting unit not only meets the development trend of the automotive market, but also can be applied in the fields of trucks, drones, buses, trains, and aviation industries.
