In the fast-paced automotive manufacturing world, maintaining cost control and ensuring top-notch quality is crucial for success. To meet the increasing demand for lightweight vehicle parts and structures while reducing emissions, automotive manufacturers are turning to die casting processes. However, one persistent challenge they face is porosity, which can lead to costly scrappage and waste inefficiencies.
Here’s how a leading US engine manufacturer overcame this issue by embracing robotic vacuum impregnation. This transformative solution minimized scrappage, increased throughput, reduced costs, and improved environmental sustainability.
