Investment casting plays a pivotal role in automotive manufacturing. Citimetal has both a manual and a semi-automatic production line, with the latter able to produce more than four million pieces a year.
Choosing between a mechanical or an electrical solution usually requires compromise. However, Saleri’s dual-mode electromechanical water pump (EMP) combines the benefits of today’s mechanical pumps with the benefits of electrical ones.
When it comes to automotive components, getting to a quick ‘yes’ on any part design is essential to hitting project timelines. ProtoTool (rapid tooling) by HLH Prototypes is a fast manufacturing solution that allows the automotive industry to produce parts more quickly.
Diesel engines come in all shapes and sizes, and many manufacturers specialize at one end or the other. However, Hatz supplies technologically sophisticated engine components, such as connecting rod parts from small one-cylinder two-stroke engines up to heavy-duty 12-cylinder applications.
The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) will be distributing its range of free powder metallurgy publications, including introductory guides to additive manufacturing, hot isostatic pressing, metal injection molding and press and sinter, as well as EPMA’s Spotlight on PM guides featuring case studies from industry sectors such as automotive, aerospace and medical.
The evolution of engine design requires components with a high stiffness-to-inertia ratio, fatigue durability, high fuel pressure or temperature resistance with complex geometry that allows compact packaging.
