Aluminum automotive and aerospace demonstrator

Casting of automotive and aerospace components was performed with standard alluminum alloys and innovative alloys from Pechiney. Parts with very complex geometry have been chosen, in order to investigate the process limits and possibilities. Optimised parameters were investigated, as well as alloy behaviour and final characteristics.
automotive components: Suspension triangle, brake calliper;
Aerospace component: Fitting hook

About 30 parts per each alloy have been produced with good results in most of cases. Such components allow to demonstrate to possible customers the feasibility of complex, structural applications with the New Rheocasting process.
Similar applications could start on the base of the project experience.
