Project

RESEARCH ON ADVANCED LIGHTWEIGHT CASTINGS FOR ENGINEERING APPLICATIONS

The project is funded by the Ministry of Industry and Trade.

The project is focused on research and development of an unconventional method of production of high quality, light and tough castings from aluminium alloys (AlSi7Mg0.6) using precision casting and controlled solidification of the melt by gradual immersion of the mould into cooling media. The object of research and development will thus be to increase their desired performance properties by this proposed method.
