Magnesium Castings

Since 1995 our foundry has produced complex magnesium castings for prototype and small series projects.

In particular we focus on producing prototypes of parts that later will be produced by high pressure die casting. Typically such parts are thinwalled and highly detailed.

Magnesium Casting in AZ91

Magnesium castings - Our processes

pouring aluminium or magnesium

Plaster casting
Rapid magnesium castings can be produced by plaster casting within only 1-2 weeks. Suitable for complex parts in smaller quantities in the early development phase.

 

Die casting
High pressure die casting prototypes produced in soft tools within 4-8 weeks. Suitable for higher prototype quantities.

 

 

CNC machining
Prototypes machined from cast magnesium blocks within 2-5 weeks. Suitable for magnesium parts with narrow tolerances.

CNC machining
Magnesium castings often involve secondary operations like CNC machining. We have many years of experience in machining magnesium castings. Besides CNC machining we can also take care of surface treatments.
