Learn about the latest advancements in magnesium Thixomolding for thin-walled lightweight parts for both automotive and other e-mobility solutions:
- Thixomolding is similar to that of injection molding for plastics and is an alternative for hot chamber die casting for thin-walled lightweight parts;
- The Thixomolding process uses less casting energy and uses magnesium chips as input material;
- castwerk operates the world's largest Thixomolding machine (1.250 ton) and is able to produce lightweight parts for large automotive cockpits, as well as footboards for e-scooters and engine parts for e-bikes.
