Die Casting

High Pressure Aluminium Die Casting Foundry.

A large part of our production rests on high pressure aluminium die casting. At our disposal we have two state-of-the-art Italpresse cold chamber die casting machines with closing forces of 400 and 550 tons respectively.

The high pressure die casting process takes place in our specially built facility, which houses 2 automatic working cells. Each cell consists of a cold chamber die cast machine, dosing furnace, automatic die sprayer and an automatic extractor arm.

The automatic working cells are monitored by a "real time injection adjustment system" which ensures unparalleled product and production consistency.

Before the aluminium can be used by the dosing furnace it is first melted in a shaft furnace and then passed through a rotary flux injection degasser. This process guarantees that the metal is free from oxides and hydrogen, providing castings with optimum mechanical properties.
