Light-alloy casting of mechanical parts

Aluminum-based light alloys have a well-founded reputation for low weight, reliability, strength, durability and versatility, which is why they are so widely used in a number of sectors, including automotive, construction, mechanical engineering and other industries. These alloys are among the materials of choice for the production of lightweight parts, thanks to their productivity, precision, consistency and homogeneity. Moulds are created using the mould of the part to be produced, before being used to accommodate the alloys in their liquid state. The melting point of aluminum alloys is quite low, so molds can be used continuously. The lightness of the parts, but also their degree of thermoconductivity and electroconductivity, their resistance to oxidation, their mechanical strength..., and more generally their mechanical and physico-chemical properties depend not only on the uses to which they are dedicated, but also on other factors such as the nature of the different components of the aluminum alloy, the micrographic structure, the nominal composition, the balance between the various solid phases...

AB Fonderie specializes in the casting of aluminum and other light alloys, and is distinguished by its great adaptability, enabling it to meet the specific needs of each of its customers by drawing on its expertise in aluminum casting:
- prototyping prior to large- or medium-scale production, requiring not only functional and performance testing of future parts, but also reliability and quality checks, as well as a financial and technical feasibility study for future production;
- production of industrial parts in small and medium production runs to supply assembly lines, supply stocks or spare parts requiring high-precision manufacturing.

When you work with AB Fonderie, you can rest assured :
- to work with a group of companies made up of 3 interdependent businesses, offering you a wide range of technologies and skills for your aluminum alloy parts manufacturing project;
- cooperate with a team of 50 technicians demonstrating responsiveness and real know-how accumulated since 1999;
- benefit from support from A to Z, in addition to efficient, tailor-made technical solutions for aluminum casting;
- be guaranteed delivery of molded parts within 6 weeks.

Aluminum die-casting and injection molding

To manufacture your parts, the AB Fonderie group uses 2 moulding processes:
- gravity die-casting (filling a metal mold to produce small parts weighing from 50 g to 10 kg, for production runs of 100 to 1,000 parts).
- Aluminum pressure die-casting (a process similar to plastic injection molding for the production of high-precision mechanical parts ranging from 20 g to 1 kg, for production runs of at least 5,000 units).

We also use another process to manufacture your high-precision industrial parts. This is the electrical discharge machining of aluminum. This process enables us to machine your prototypes and/or parts in small and medium production runs.
