Light-alloy casting of mechanical parts

Aluminum-based light alloys have a well-founded reputation for low mass, reliability, strength, durability and versatility, which is why they are used in a wide range of industrial sectors, including automotive, construction, mechanical engineering and others. These alloys are an integral part of the materials most frequently used to manufacture lightweight parts, thanks to their productivity, precision, regularity and homogeneity. Moulds are created from the impression of the part to be produced prior to their use, to accommodate the alloys in liquid form. As the melting point of light alloys is relatively low, molds can be used permanently. The lightness of the parts, but also their degree of thermal and electrical conductivity, their resistance to rust, their mechanical strength... and more generally their mechanical-physical-chemical characteristics depend not only on the uses for which they are designed, 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...

Specializing in aluminum and other light alloys, AB Fonderie is highly adaptable, 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 verification of the functionality and performance of future parts, as well as their reliability and quality, in addition to a study of the financial and technical feasibility of their future manufacture;
- production of industrial parts in small and medium production runs to supply assembly lines, spare parts warehouses or supplies requiring a high level of precision.

When you work with AB Fonderie, you can be sure :
- to work with a group of 3 interdependent companies, offering you a wide range of technologies and skills for your light-alloy parts manufacturing project;
- work in collaboration 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, customized technical solutions for aluminum casting;
- be guaranteed delivery of castings after a maximum period of 6 weeks.

Aluminum die-casting and injection molding

AB Fonderie uses 2 moulding techniques to produce your parts:
- 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).
- Aluminium pressure die-casting (similar to plastic injection molding, for precision parts ranging from 20 g to 1 kg, for production runs of over 5,000 parts).

We also use another technique to manufacture your high-precision mechanical parts. This is EDM (Electrical Discharge Machining) machining of aluminum. This process enables us to manufacture your prototypes and/or parts in small and medium production runs.
