What makes aluminum casting unique

With miguss, you have a reliable and professional partner at your side when it comes to 
aluminum casting parts! All products manufactured by us are characterized by impeccable 
quality and produced by means of fully automated and ultra-modern equipment. In the 
gravity die casting and high pressure die casting process the individually developed and 
constructed casting molds are reused: Thanks to this procedure, it is possible for us to offer any scale of production from individual prototypes to large series and to produce even 
incredibly complex components in the highest quality.

Gravity die casting

The gravity die casting process is characterized by the fact that during production the molten aluminum is poured into a permanent metallic mold known as a "gravity die". Due to its high thermal conductivity, the permanent mold ensures accelerated cooling of the 
solidifying melt. As a result of the rapid solidification, a fine-grained, dense and thus 
extremely stable casting is produced. The mold, which is usually made of cast iron or steel, 
can be used for further castings after removal of the solidified aluminum product. In this 
way, even large series can be easily realized from an economic point of view.

Sand Casting

As the name suggests, the sand casting or sand molding process involves the use of molds 
made of sand. This process works on the principle of the lost mold, which means that the 
mold is destroyed after being used once to remove the casting. Sand molds are less 
expensive to manufacture than reusable metal molds and are particularly suitable for 
producing small series or prototypes. Another advantage is that complicated geometries 
with undercuts can also be reproduced in the sand casting process - this is not possible, or 
only possible to a limited extent, in die casting or permanent mold casting. When using sand casting molds, it is also possible to react more cost-effectively and flexibly to any changes during manufacturing.

High-Pressure Die-Casting

With high pressure die casting, the liquid aluminum alloy is pressed at high pressure and a very high mold filling speed into a preheated steel mold, in which it solidifies. The molds are 
individually developed and designed for each project. The die casting process often allows a drastic reduction in the unit price, which in turn has a positive effect on the overall 
production costs.
