Successfully avoiding stumbling blocks

In the production of die-cast aluminum parts, the metal is introduced into a die-casting tool under high pressure and at a defined speed.

But what sounds simple harbors numerous stumbling blocks. In order to achieve high product quality and a long service life of the mold while at the same time being cost-efficient, a number of things have to be taken into account as early as the housing design or the design of the mold. For example, optimum stability and shape retention with the lowest possible material consumption is achieved by uniform wall thicknesses and the avoidance of large surfaces and material accumulations. The choice of alloy also plays a decisive role here. The avoidance of large radii and undercuts as well as the planning of demolding chamfers for easier removal of the finished housings from the mold extend its service life, facilitate handling and thus reduce process costs. With us, you have an experienced partner at your side who knows and masters the challenges of the die casting process.

Concept housing aluminum die casting

In the concept phase, we work with you to define the requirements for the die-cast aluminum part or housing. These include functions, budget, cost-effectiveness, area of application and installation space. We discuss with you what we can do for you and which work steps you want to carry out yourself. Experience has shown that a holistic approach to design, manufacturing and assembly reduces overall production costs.

Series production aluminum die casting

We can use the Phoenix Mecano Group's cost-effective production facilities for the production of aluminum die-cast parts. Variant production, finishing and assembly are then carried out in Switzerland. In this way, we are able to guarantee high flexibility in order quantities and short delivery times. The one-piece flow in our production reduces stock quantities to a minimum and allows us to manufacture individual product variants at short notice.

Procurement of electronics and components

As a supplier of fully assembled devices and assemblies, we are also happy to procure the electronics and components to be assembled for you. This ensures a simple, smooth procurement process and relieves your resources.

Equipment assembly

Our services are not limited to the production and delivery of die-cast aluminum housings. We can do more for you: If you wish, we can also take over the assembly of the complete device, including function tests and packaging. Whether integration of membrane keypad, display or touch screen, installation of PCBs or electronics ‒ on our LEAN assembly workstations we assemble both small and large series efficiently and "just-in-time" in one-piece flow.
