The high-pressure die-casting industries are currently experiencing a period marked by uncertainty and changes due to the progressive replacement of combustion cars by electric vehicles, implying the need for vehicle light-weighting.
Structural die-castings are becoming more and more common with die and machines becoming larger and more complex. New steels with improved properties are being developed to improve the die’s life and to reduce the re-working costs.
The HPDCSTEEL project has developed a new steel reinforced with synthetic carbides thar increase the wearing resistance and the live of the die without promoting over-costs in the machining operations.
- The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session to discuss the technologies and properties developed in the project with the experts.
