Zero material and solvent losses from pre-shot and flushing shot

The ELASTOLINE low-pressure metering machines for elastomer casting have been an established, state-of-the-art product range for decades. However, low-pressure casting has one distinctive disadvantage: the loss of material and solvents due to technical reasons. Hennecke’s new ELASTOLINE HP high-pressure elastomer casting machines make these material losses a thing of the past. The high-pressure mixhead of Read more about Zero material and solvent losses from pre-shot and flushing shot[…]

Electric cars: Optimal temperature with Combicore

The optimum operating temperature of a component determines its efficiency and service life. For example, the range of electric cars drops rapidly in colder temperatures, sometimes by up to 50 percent. There are also problems with charging the batteries. On the other hand, if it is too hot, batteries age faster. Combicore casting cores efficiently Read more about Electric cars: Optimal temperature with Combicore[…]

Combicore cores revolutionize die casting and other casting processes

Undercuts are hardly possible in high pressure die casting. New technologies require new cooling concepts and a consequent lightweight construction. In high pressure die casting ducts for cooling or oil are traditionally realized by sliders or drilling afterwards. However, such cavities are bound to straight axes. Sand cores that are known from other casting processes Read more about Combicore cores revolutionize die casting and other casting processes[…]
