Auto Die Castings
Aluminum die casting products are heavily used in the Automotive Industry
because of its strength, durability, light weight and recyclability. The largest
market for aluminum die castings is the automotive industry, half the aluminum used
in cars are aluminum castings. Aluminum casting transmission, housing, and
pistons are commonly used in cars and trucks. There are also many engine parts
that are casted from aluminum. The use of aluminum castings are growing as
automaker companies seek to find new ways to gain fuel efficiency and improve
performance while saving weight.
is the most abundant metallic element in the Earth’s crust about 8% and is the
second largest used metal in the world.
The Automotive Industry is turning more to Aluminum because it is lighter
then steel and makes cars much more efficient. 1 kg of aluminum replaces 2 kg
of steel which in return will produce lighter cars and trucks. The lightweight
of Aluminum helps cut down on fuel costs and CO2 generation.
Aluminum automotive parts have good thermal properties and can be cast net
shape. An aluminum auto part can weigh 1/3 that of a steel part. Hundreds to
thousands of aluminum diecast parts can be produced per day.
