Development trend of die-casting of coffee machine hardware accessories in China
- 2019-04-08-

Does the die casting technology and process still exist in the "additive manufacturing era"? Yes, then market trends are confirming this.

Contrary to the overall development of world trade, Italy ’s global exports have increased by nearly 16% and Switzerland by 4%, so the total value of exports has increased by 6%. The value of exported machinery has increased from {{{4}}. 77 billion euros in {{{{{4}}}} year to 4 billion euros last year. In contrast, the market share of die-casting and die-casting equipment manufacturers increased by 7%, accounting for about {5% of the global market. In 20 16, the relatively large exporter of die casting machines in the world was Italy, followed by Japan, China, Switzerland and Germany.

Die casting combines resource efficiency and safety.

More than 80% of NF castings are produced for the transportation sector. The die-casting process is especially used in the field of light automobiles. However, mass production in die castings has also proven to be effective for aluminum components in the aerospace industry (eg various housings or components for internal fittings,Power tool accessoriesWait). The aluminum alloys used are particularly valuable because they combine precision and strength to reduce the weight to a large extent, thereby improving resource efficiency and safety. In sub-parts of the aerospace industry, such as helicopter manufacturing, magnesium alloys are also used , Because they have greater potential for lightweight construction (including in the main drive system and alloy gears, gearbox housings). In the field of medical technology equipment, the material characteristics of aluminum and zinc alloys are combined with the die-casting process, which requires mass production (such as the base and rotating parts of medical equipment, intelligent security die-castings, motor housings or protective caps for radiation equipment). Cold chamber die casting machines are used for aluminum and magnesium alloys, and hot chamber die casting machines are used for zinc alloys. Even if the aerospace industry is still a niche market from the perspective of the foundry industry, because it only provides a small part of NF applications, especially in this field, the technical performance needs to be improved. This is where innovations with potential in other industries are born. For example, European foundry machine manufacturers are participating in research projects related to the manufacture and use of composite materials.

Future trends and themes
However, the operators of die casting foundries do have some problems at present. Due to discussions about the future of internal combustion engines and especially diesel engines, many die-casting foundries must adapt to profound structural changes in demand. At present, there are no satisfactory answers to all the questions that arise in this combination. At the same time, strategic decisions need to be made to have a long-term impact on the political arena, original equipment manufacturers, consumers and suppliers such as die casting foundries. In this case, policymakers need to provide reliable and strong strategic guidelines-but they should not exceed the guidelines! Although from a technical point of view, electronic mobile technology is still a long way from mature technology, but this development is obvious: electric post, StreetScooter or Bosch electronic shaft, including the drive unit on the vehicle wheel. As electric vehicles enter the market, the demand for lightweight castings may also increase. In this case, die casting provides an ideal opportunity, and its function can be utilized in many applications, whether it is an optimized component for controlling a traditional engine or a structural component and component for an electric drive system.
