Applied Casting techniques
This is what makes cast aluminum and magnesium so special
With miguss you have a reliable and professional partner for aluminum and magnesium casting at your side! All our produced parts are characterized by a perfect quality and produced with full-automatic and modern machines. The individual engineered and designed tools for gravity and high-pressure die-casting are reused. This makes it possible to offer the production of one-piece prototypes up to mass production for every lot size and as well to offer high-complex parts in the highest quality.
Gravity Die Casting
The gravity die-casting characterizes that in production the molten aluminum is casted in a permanent metal mold. Because of its high Thermal Conductivity, the mold has a fast solidification time. Because of the fast solidification time, the part has a fine-grained, pressure tight and a highly robust casting part. The mold, which exists mostly of steel or cast iron, is reused after extraction of the casting part. With that, we are able to offer mass production economically.
At sand casting, as the name already explains, the molds are from sand. This technique works as the lost-forms principle, which means that the mold get destroyed after one-time usage. The sand molds are inexpensive in manufacturing as steel molds and recommended for low lot sizes or prototypes. Another positive aspect is, that it is possible to produce high complex geometry with undercuts in sand casting – this is not or only with restrictions possible at gravity or high-pressure die-casting. At usage of sand molds, it is easier and more efficient to react on changes during the production.
At high-pressure die-casting, the liquid aluminum or magnesium alloy is casted with high pressure and speeds into the steel mold where it solidify. The molds are individually engineered and designed for every project. With high-pressure die-casting, it is often possible to reduce the production costs, what has a positive effect on the part price.
