How to reduce casting defects through mold design


In this post we are going to analyze a case study that explains how to reduce casting defects through mold design. Due to mold wear condition components started to show superficial defects: Bruschi engineers have thus introduced improvements in order to reduce casting defects.

Product Design for Die Casting


The term product design defines the process of designing a new product that has to be marketed in a specific business, taking into account not only its aesthetical characteristics but also its functions and its production cycle. Indeed, the product must meet the final user expectations while simultaneously be compliant with the production process.

Metal corrosion in automotive parts


Just like atmospheric environment, which is different for corrosivity depending on where people are located in the world, the same is for metal corrosion in automotive parts: for example in Sweden the automotive environment is quite aggressive because of humid climate and of the use of de-icing salts causing metals corrosion.
