In the automotive industry, light metal casting is used to make cylinder heads, engine blocks, rims, and other aluminum cast parts. These molds must fulfill the highest mechanical and thermophysical requirements in order to achieve optimal quality for the cast parts. This is no problem for our tungsten heavy alloy Densimet® and our molybdenum alloy TZM.
Both alloys are characterized by high thermal conductivity and a low thermal coefficient of expansion. We prevent cracks, deformations, and corrosion of the mold insert with our excellent material properties, allowing you to benefit from a long service life for Densimet® cooling inserts. Your advantage: shorter cycle times and the best surface quality for your light metal cast parts.
You can rely on Plansee as a reliable partner with 100 years of experience in refractory metal manufacturing. Our materials scientists and engineers know all that matters in this area: they will work together with you to find innovative and customized solutions for your application – from prototype development to the finished product.
