From prototype to production-ready cast part
Casing for 3D shaker mixer
The prototypes were made from aluminium blocks with the dimensions:
850 mm x 600 mm x 600 mm
milled from solid aluminium and the design defined.
Based on this, a gravity die casting tool with a weight of more than 1,500 kg was designed and built, the resulting aluminium casting with a unit weight of 20 kg is finished by us with a 5-axis machining centre and delivered with a powder-coated surface.
