Win-Win with Thixo Molding

10/14/2011 Injection molding of magnesium components is not a new process; however, it has not been able to establish itself in the automobile industry. Its multiple advantages might soon change that, given the debate around CO2 and energy. The cast parts have proven to have excellent strength values, good dimensional accuracy and little porosity. The improved ratio of shot weight and part weight makes it possible to realize a savings in material, and the lower casting temperatures reduce the energy consumption and improved service life of the dies. Last, but not least, it should be noted that there is no need for inert gas which, in turn, is not only good for the environment but also saves money. Bühler is working successfully in the area of Thixo Molding together with the JSW – Japan Steel Works – company.
