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[…]
