Gibbs' international vision is responsible for construction and expansion of a die casting plant in Texas that is providing aluminum and magnesium
castings to customers in Mexico.
Aluminum and magnesium
have differing amounts of dross when melted, putting together assemblies with the materials presents different challenges, and the tools used to cast the materials have varying service lives due to the different melting and pouring temperatures involved.
With the addition of AAC, Compass becomes a $220 million manufacturer and the leading North American supplier of safety-critical aluminum and magnesium
components for chassis and suspension applications.
is the corporate parent of two growing Monomoy automotive companies: Casting Technologies Company ("CTC"), a squeeze cast manufacturer of safety-critical aluminum castings including suspension components and compressor scrolls, and Magnesium Aluminum Corporation ("MAC"), a die cast manufacturer of highly engineered aluminum and magnesium
components including steering wheels, steering columns and airbag enclosures.
It will show that the replacement of heavier components (including stamped steel fabrications and even plastics) with lightweight aluminum and magnesium
castings has been instrumental to the automotive industry's ability to improve vehicle fuel consumption.
Aluminum and magnesium
die castings are at the forefront of efforts to introduce lighter weight components to help increase fuel efficiency.
Much of the "headline news" has been on light metals such as aluminum and magnesium
The Russian National Aluminum and Magnesium
Institute (VAMI) and Ukrainian Titanium Institute (UTI) are providing the proven magnesium extraction technology under the direction of SAB.
Although aluminum is often cast via lost foam, there are a number of differences between aluminum and magnesium
that could prohibit this process in magnesium.
They are caused by oxidation of aluminum and magnesium
USER--Werkzeugbau Schaufler, Laichingen, Germany, ranks among the top European diemakers, and specializes in manufacturing dies for aluminum and magnesium
Schenk Foundry is an aluminum and magnesium
caster that produces components for the automotive, motorcycle and electric industries using sand, permanent mold and high-pressure diecasting processes.
Aluminum--Aluminum alloys experience oxide inclusions because both aluminum and magnesium
react with oxygen in the atmosphere to form aluminum oxide and magnesium oxide, respectively.
These case histories detail how computer simulation identified and resolved problems, whether actual or anticipated, and reduced overall costs in casting low carbon steel, ductile iron, aluminum and magnesium
Teksid produces cast iron, aluminum and magnesium
components for the automotive industry and employs 15,000 people at 34 facilities worldwide.
