innovative hot chamber Medium Pressure Die Casting process for Aluminium

Project description

New manufacturing process for aluminium parts

Aluminium’s excellent properties, such as high strength-to-weight ratio, durability, formability and recyclability, render it a suitable alternative to steel for car components. Typically, aluminium alloys are being injected at high pressure into a cold chamber. However, existing metal-forming processes that allow creating complex aluminium parts are inefficient. The EU-funded MPDCA project aims to process aluminium alloys through hot chamber die casting. Researchers will adapt this process to aluminium by incorporating a unique injection pump with corrosion-resistant composites. This advanced process is expected to produce higher-quality aluminium parts, reduce investment and operational costs by 20 %, and reduce energy use by 25 %.
