These are our techniques.
To get your product exactly the way you want it, we use various casting techniques.
Each casting process has its own characteristics. The shape, complexity, and application of your product determine the final process. Taking into account the series size in which it will be produced and how the product should look aesthetically.
Based on the information you provide, we determine which process is most cost-efficient, without compromising on your requirements and preferences.
Injection molding is a fully automated casting process in which liquid metal is injected under pressure into a mold.
The process begins by connecting two mold halves, one of which has an injection port. The liquid metal is then injected into the mold at high pressure (between 0.3 to 7 bar). The casting is then cooled and ejected from the mold when it is opened. This process is suitable for products that have a shape that does not get stuck in the mold. The product must be "releasing" (or made to be).
Because the mold is usually made of steel, injection molding is very suitable for metals with a low melting point such as aluminum, copper, lead, zinc, and other non-ferrous metals.
To ensure streamlined production, the producibility of the product is carefully examined beforehand. This includes the use of digital simulations to simulate the behavior of the liquid metal in the mold. The correct process steps are also checked to ensure the most efficient production possible.
In this way, complications that could disrupt the production process are prevented in advance.
The evolution of the aluminum casting
Aluminum castings undergo a number of changes to ultimately become the ideal end product.
Raw Product: The product comes out of the mold, often with a sprue (also known as "runners"). These are removed and melted down for reuse.
Deburred Product: Next, the product is deburred and any sharp edges are removed. This can be done in several ways, depending on the type of product and the required level of finishing.
Finished Product: The final product that meets your expectations! This includes all post-processing and any surface treatment.
