For electric vehicles (EVs) – whether hybrid, plug-in hybrid electric, or fully electric – reducing weight is a key priority. Replacing heavy, multi-component parts with larger and lighter ‘single-piece’ aluminium or magnesium castings, provides a perfect solution. In fact, the strength and integrity delivered by high quality light alloy cast parts can, in many cases, reduce vehicle weight by up to 40% without any impact on safety performance.
Our TFs High Pressure Die Casting (HPDC) machines, available stand-alone machines or as part of an automated cell, are particularly well suited to producing structural castings for EV.
Modular options mean you can tailor your machine to perfectly match specific alloy and application characteristics e.g. complex structure/thin walls.
All of which deliver the stability, repeatability and consistent quality needed for EV-ready castings ranging from chassis, shock towers and internal panels to battery housings and even batteries themselves.
