LIGHT WEIGHT CONSTRUCTION – THE CHALLENGE OF THE FUTURE

Low fuel consumption is a top priority, but the unnecessarily heavy weight of some vehicle components can result in high fuel consumption.

Magnesium Thixomolding® components, however, are extremely lightweight; our production process enables us to work with the magnesium alloy to meet your requirements for strength, durability and weight.

We offer specific materials for the Thixomolding® process, ensuring that we are able to find the right material and the right process for your component-design and your performance specification.
