An increasing number of car parts such as engine blocks or structural parts are being manufactured from aluminum using high-pressure die casting. At the 13th International Foundry Trade Fair (GIFA) in Düsseldorf, Germany, Bühler Die Casting was highlighting its role as the global solution provider for aluminum high-pressure die casting.
As the only supplier, it boasts production and service capabilities in Europe, the United States, and China, covering all three major automotive markets in the world. Today, one in four aluminum engine blocks are produced with Bühler technology, and every second car uses light-alloy parts made on Bühler machines.
“With innovations such as a new human machine interface and monitoring system, the Ecoline Pro line with integrated peripherals as well as an integrated vacuum system, we are demonstrating our commitment to maximum production efficiency and parts quality as well as easy automation. We are fully prepared to lead the industry through the next growth cycle,” explains Jonathan Abbis, Head of Business Area Die Casting.
