"We Cast Sustainability"
Our cast parts sustainably improve our environment.

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.

Green Castings

Weight reduced, energy efficient and resource saving.

In sand and LPDC castings as well as forged parts made of aluminium
there is an enormous CO₂ reduction potential.

Substitution Mold-/
Sand Casting Parts

Substitution mold/sand casting parts have to be designed with thicker walls due to reduced material parameters, which leads to increased component weights.

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. 

Weight Reduction

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 increased productivity, the lower post-processing effort and a significantly reduced heat treatment time

Weight Reduction

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.

Substitution
Forged Parts

Forged components are subject to manufacturing design restrictions. Thin-walled sections push the forging process to its limits.

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.

Less is more.

We see consistent lightweight construction as a key technology of the future.

K1 Castings in Vehicle Platforms
