We understand green castings as a way of sustainably changing our environment. We are of the opinion that, in order to achieve CO₂-neutral mobility, every component and every manufacturing process must be put to the test today.
Exactly in these parts there is an enormous CO₂ reduction potential.
Our K1 technology enables the weight reduction of many safety-relevant aluminum components that are currently manufactured in other manufacturing processes.
Here, through the reduced use of materials, energy-efficient production and the reduced weight of parts in the customer use phase, our environment is sustainably improved by conserving resources and reducing emissions. The decisive factor today is what footprint a component leaves over its entire life cycle.
In sand and LPDC castings as well as forged parts made of aluminium
there is an enormous CO₂ reduction potential.
Sand Casting Parts
Our K1 technology makes it possible to design components with a significantly reduced cross section, which leads to significant weight reductions.
Due to the shortest cycle times, which are only a fraction compared to sand or permanent mold casting, and the “near net shape” property of die-cast parts, productivity is significantly increased and the post-processing effort is significantly reduced, which saves costs and resources in the long term.
The energy consumption in production is extremely reduced thanks to a significantly shorter homogenization and aging time in the heat treatment.
Due to the significantly higher material characteristics of our die cast parts, part sections can be designed more filigree.
Reduction of energy consumption
Due to the design freedom of die casting, part sections can be redesigned (ribbing).
Reduction of Energy Consumption
By melting back the return material in the die casting process and the reduced energy requirement in production, the energy balance is significantly improved.
In addition, the production of forged components is particularly energy-intensive. The substitution with our castings allows unrestricted design freedom. The weight of the component is further reduced by ribbing by means of a load-oriented redesign.
The energy balance in production is significantly improved by the energy-efficient die casting compared to forging and the direct melting of the return material.
