Aluminum Die Casting

Martinrea Honsel is at the forefront of die casting technology. In the process of high pressure die casting (“HPDC”), molten metal is forced at high speed and pressure into a steel die, subsequently cooled, resulting in a raw casting. Given the short die-filling times, this procedure allows the production of large-volume, thin-walled components in mass serial production. In general, HPDC is used to produce engine blocks, transmission housings or other components with weights between 0.5kg up to 50kg in aluminum. Additionally, a vacuum casting process allows the production of heat treatable and weldable suspension and body parts.
