Today’s aluminium castings are getting bigger all the time, especially thanks to the global shift towards electric vehicles. Giant casting machines with massive closing forces are needed to meet this demand. They also need feeding with a lot of metal – up to 200 kg per shot in some cases.

Transferring the volume of molten aluminium required, either by forklift or transfer ladle, is not practical or efficient, especially when melting furnaces are located separately to die casting halls.

In-cell melting is the ideal solution, supporting the high metal throughput you need for casting large structural components at the speed and quality expected by end-customers.

Thanks to decades of experience in high-efficiency, melting, holding, and dosing technology, we’ve developed a flexible, modular suite of options to meet your needs. Perfectly.
