Fast and flexible implementation
Ordering steel, building tools, incorporating possible changes, producing: when manufacturing components in high-pressure die casting, up to 40 weeks may pass between the order and the delivery. This is, amongst other things, due to the complex production of large and heavy steel tools.
Thanks to the model devices made of high-performance plastics used in sand casting, it generally only takes 12 weeks in series production from making the tools to delivering the components. In this process, possible changes during the development of the components can be addressed flexibly.
The time savings start in the prototype development phase already. As prototypes are nearly exclusively produced by sand casting, the results can be transferred to later series production nearly unchanged. If, however, components then have to be produced in high-pressure die casting, further tests are necessary because a new production method has been chosen.
