Ahresty developed a new High Vacuum Die Casting Technology to produce a sub-frame that reduced weight by 38% compared with the previous steel stamping, while maintaining sufficient strength and toughness to absorb impact with the assurance of rigidity The new method capitalized on the traditional advantages of die casting - high productivity, freedom of shape and good dimensional accuracy - but increased strength through several techniques: the use of special aluminum alloys; a holding furnace that reduced debris and gases in the molten metal; and creating a high vacuum when filling the die.
Plus it will increase the capability of the Ausmelt so eventually it can become our only smelting furnace and allow us to convert the old reverberatory furnace, which is responsible for most roof level emissions, into a holding furnace.
