If the smelter produces high-quality aluminium, the foundry turns that metal into a myriad of applications through several casting processes, including high-pressure, low-pressure and sand. Foundry castings include automotive wheels, transmission housings, engine blocks, heads and pistons, as well as non-automotive applications such as motor rotors, computer chassis and machine parts.
Poor metal quality results in casting defects and increases costs for aluminium foundries and die casters who are trying to meet strict requirements and gain a profitable edge. Oxides, hydrogen and dross are introduced in all stages of the process. Scrapping inferior metal makes metal treatment practices essential. Quality aluminum castings require end-to-end process solutions.
Pyrotek's foundry team focuses on improving metal quality and foundry performance with integrated systems for metal melting, transfer treatment, holding and casting.
