Being released for the first time to the European die casting industry is a revolutionary change that will generate a costs savings of up to 85% for all die casting manufacturing processes. This new lubricant formula has proven to drastically reduce manufacturing running costs and extend the life of expensive die molds used to manufacture various OEM components and parts.
One of the latest metal alloys to be introduced for OEM manufactured parts that operate at extremely high temperature is Hi-Sil Moly. This new ductile iron alloy is an iron metal base composed with silicon and molybdenum. With four enhanced properties.
The advancements in 3 dimensional printing were showcased at the EuroMold 2014 in Frankfurt, Germany last November. The trade show highlighted the benefits and added flexibility that 3D printing now offers the manufacturing ecosystem; including sand casting and other casting manufacturing styles.
Recently, a few new environmental mandates are being pressed into U.S. Federal law at an alarming rate, namely the added restrictions of Lead-Free Brass in OEM parts manufacturing. Brass castings and forgings with lead are being banned in most states
There are numerous forging and foundry methods used for a variety of products in an even wider range of industries. How do you pick the one that will best fit your OEM component, where do you start?
The foundry and casting industry is a rapidly changing and truly a global market. Throughout the world, in industrialized countries as well as developing nations, there continues to be a large push to improve the die and sand casting process to produce an even better final product.
