Light alloy casting of mechanical parts

Aluminum-based light alloys are known for their low weight, reliability, strength, durability and versatility, which is why they are used in many industries such as automotive, construction, mechanical engineering, etc. These alloys are the preferred materials for the production of lightweight parts, due to their performance, precision, but also regularity and homogeneity of manufacture. Molds are created using the impression of the part to be produced before they are used to accommodate the molten metal alloys. The melting temperature of aluminum alloys is low enough to allow the permanent use of molds. The lightness of the parts, but also their degree of thermal and electrical conductivity, their resistance to corrosion, their mechanical resistance..., and more globally their mechanical-physical-chemical characteristics depend both on the uses to which they are dedicated, but also on other factors which are the nature of the various components of the aluminum alloy, the micrographic structure, the nominal composition, the balance between the various solid phases...

Specialized in aluminum and other light alloys casting, AB Fonderie has a great adaptability, allowing it to meet the specific needs of each of its customers by relying on its know-how in aluminum casting:
- prototyping prior to a larger scale production requiring a control of the functionalities and performances of the future parts, but also of their reliability and quality, in addition to an analysis of the financial and technical feasibility of their future manufacturing;
- production of industrial parts in small and medium series in order to ensure the supply of assembly lines or assembly, reserves of supplies or spare parts requiring a high precision realization.

When you work with AB Foundry, you can be sure :
- to collaborate with a collective of companies gathering 3 interdependent companies which make you benefit from a broad panel of technologies and competences for your project of manufacture of parts in aluminium alloys;
- cooperate with a team of 50 technicians who are both reactive and have a proven know-how since 1999;
- Take advantage of our A to Z support, in addition to efficient and personalized technical solutions for aluminum casting;
- obtain a guarantee that the castings will be delivered within a maximum of 6 weeks.

Die casting and aluminum injection molding

To make your parts, AB Fonderie uses 2 molding techniques:
- Gravity die-casting (filling a metal mold for the production of small parts from 50 g to 10 kg, for series of 100 to 1,000 parts).
- Aluminium injection under pressure in a mould (a process similar to plastic injection for the production of precision parts ranging from 20 g to 1 kg, for series of at least 5,000 units).

We also use another process to manufacture your high precision mechanical parts. It is the machining of aluminum by electro-erosion via the application of electric discharges. This process allows us to machine your prototypes and/or your parts in small and medium series.
