CastAlum has ten fully-automated high pressure diecasting cells in the range of 1,000 – 1,600 tonne locking-force. Each cell has its own integral bulk-melting tower furnace to ensure that the correct quantity and quality of metal is always on hand.
Recyclable material from the trim press is fed directly back into the furnace, eliminating any possibility of contamination between differing grades of aluminium. This process is highly suited to complex thin-walled castings. Core products made from this process include Steering Gear Housings and Transmission Housings.
