For a wide range of applications, at druckguss|waghäusel
aluminium alloys are heated up to approx. 700°C, and then
mechanically pressed into steel moulds under high pressure. Within
seconds, the aluminium re-obtains its solid state. Then the steel
mould opens and the die cast part can be removed.
Die cast parts are used
in all industrial branches due to their comparatively low weight
with simultaneously good mechanical and physical properties.
Die casting can be recommended
for series with high quantities, high finish quality, and precision
of the required dimension. Complex, precision-formed casting parts
from 0.050kg up to 3,000kg are being manufactured on our machines.
The precise and elaborately
designed tools from high quality hot forming tool steel allow
- according to respective customer requirement - a production
of partly over 100,000 castings.
On our die casting machines,
approx. 600 tons of aluminium are being casted annually.
