Comprehensive knowhow around megacasting production

Larger die-casting solutions make it possible for a whole body in white section to be created as a single piece. This allows automotive OEMs to simplify production, reduce costs and create a more sustainable vehicle.
 

50,000 kN+ die-casting solutions offer groundbreaking new opportunities for body in white manufacturing – so called megacastings or gigacastings. These large cells, with integrated peripherals, require a well thought-through setup. It all starts with site planning and the set-up of a process for part handling within the die-casting cell and afterwards. Also, the thermal management and spraying process, a clever handling of the return material and the integration of the right peripheral devices are key.

The Carat series

The Carat two-platen solution with minimum deflection and a high degree of dimensional accuracy has long-proven its value for the production of large and complex structural components. The unique Bühler shot control system, for real-time closed-loop control, allows for consistent high quality part production.

All the machines in the expanded Carat portfolio are delivered with the DataView control unit – which makes the control of the die-casting machine easier and more intuitive via its multitouch screen.

Additionally, every machine is equipped our new energy frame concept with a clear and distinctive arrangement of energy couplings.

The Carat series also offers the option of servo drive technology.
