The aluminum die casting business Alupress, is piloting a new data-driven solution to improve productivity at its Hildburghausen foundry site in Germany. The solution was developed in cooperation with StrikoWestofen.
An innovative furnace lining and pre-sintered refractory parts solution from Striko Westofen for Westomat dosing furnaces has provided a much-needed quick fix for Schlicht Druckguss, a high-pressure die casting foundry specializing in the global supply of aluminum alloy parts, molds and tooling.
StrikoWestofen has developed a new guideline which helps aluminum foundries to get specific cost drivers under control. The guide shows where problems can occur and which technical solutions are available to solve them.
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!
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.
The heart of every foundry is the melting furnace in which the metal is liquefied. These furnaces use different technologies to melt the material. The aim of every furnace, however, is to consume as little heat and fuel as possible.
This year EUROGUSS Asia Pacific will again take place as part of Metal AP in Bangkok from 12 - 14th December 2019. The Project Manager Lindsay Bao tells us in an interview how the organisation is progressing and what awaits the visitor at the Thai fair.
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.
