Stable inlay aluminium tubes for HPDC and other casting processes
06th June, 12.50am, Open Technology Forum, Engine Expo,
Stable inlay aluminium tubes for HPDC
Stable, filled inlay tubes for foundries
Near end outline casting with remarkable material savings
Foundries make channels for oil, water and other cooling liquids or gases by using combicore inlay tubes. The thin walled tube is stabilized with a filling and therefore resists a casting pressure of more than 1,000 bar.
After the casting process the filling material is removed. The tubing remains in the cast piece.
Typical applications are found in the automotive sector, as for example transmission casing, engine blocks, brakes and charging units for electric cars.

Cooling element gains special recognition at international pressure casting contest 2012
During the opening ceremony of Euroguss in Nuremberg on January 16th 2012 this year’s prize winner of the International Aluminum Pressure Casting Contest was awarded. The Moneva Foundry received special recognition for a casting incorporating a cooling element used in hybrid technology. The Jury of Research and Science praised the value of the innovation and high requirements within the casting industry.The cast component will be an important step for hybrid technology to help solve a cooling problem encountered with battery technology. The casting incorporates a cooling tube within the aluminum casting, composed of a different aluminum alloy. This technology allows for the substitution with this casting for the parts previous constructed multiple sheets of material and enabling a considerable cost savings.
