New die casting machines
It is becoming a reality; the possibility of producing entire front or rear underbodies on die-casting machines is within reach. For automotive production, this will be the next big thing. A rear underbody made from a single die simplifies production dramatically – 70 parts become one. Assembly lines with 300 robots are eliminated, saving production space. And Bühler, thanks to its experience with large structural components, will play a driving role here.
