New, cost-effective process for series production of lightweight vehicle components

Very light, structurally stable components made of thermoset fiber composites have been used for many years in motor sports and in the field of high-quality sports vehicles. Carbon components (carbon-fiber-reinforced plastics, CFRPs) such as roof modules can be efficiently produced using the so-called resin transfer molding (RTM) process. In order to reduce costs and use Read more about New, cost-effective process for series production of lightweight vehicle components[…]

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[…]
