Norican Global A/S, a metallic parts enhancement company, has taken a minority shareholding in South Africa-based DataProphet, a global specialist in Artificial Intelligence for manufacturing. Norican CEO Anders Wilhjelm will take a seat on DataProphet’s board.
A control system upgrade by Italpresse Gauss, a Norican technology, has brought a legacy high-pressure die casting machine into the digital age for Ningbo Boli Automotive Components, a non-ferrous foundry based in Ningbo, Zhejiang Province, China.
In a new facility of the die casting foundry of Siemens AG in Germany, two new fully automatic die casting cells were installed. Both cells were started up within only a few weeks and have been running in three-shift operation ever since.
Norican Global A/S, a leading metallic parts enhancement company, has entered an industry-exclusive partnership with DataProphet, a global leader in artificial intelligence (AI) for manufacturing, to bring meaningful AI applications into real-life foundry environments.
At EUROGUSS 2020 from 14 to 16 January 2020, Italpresse Gauss, StrikoWestofen and Wheelabrator will be presenting a seamless overall solution for aluminum die casting. The intended aim is to maximize productivity and quality while keeping costs and resources to a minimum.
Hattori Diecast has become the first Japanese company to order and install a StrikoMelter melting furnace from StrikoWestofen. The company produces automotive parts for major brands including Toyota and specialises in aluminum parts such as computer housings, air-bag sensors, sump valves, accumulators and cylinders.
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.
Over the next six years, aluminum consumption is expected to rise to 120 million tonnes. Talking to Michael Colditz, Global Product Manager Horizontal and Non-Iron Solutions at DISA, we got exciting insights into the developments taking place to help support new and existing aluminum foundry customers.
