To avoid compromising quality and increasing costs in the creation of large, complex components, specifying the correct die-casting
lubricant is essential to ensure an adequate release lubricant film is formed over the die surface.
Mr Head, who was recently appointed Deputy Lieutenant of the West Midlands, described the move as a "strategic addition" to the Rical Group, which specialises in presswork components, die-castings

, which isn't known for its worker-friendly operating environment, Thixomolding involves no melting pot or transfer of molten metal.
"Using four-slide die-casting
machines, miniature and subminiature components under 1.5" in any direction can be produced to extremely tight tolerances with virtually no minimum-size restrictions," according to David Piacitelli, Miniature Casting Corp (MCC), Cranston, RI.
The merged businesses will form the largest aluminium pressure die-casting
company in the UK with 50 die-casting
machines with capacities from 80 tonnes to 2,700 tonnes.
Ohio State University's Engineering Research Center for Net-Shape Manufacturing (Columbus) has been conducting research on die-casting
and is making the working knowledge available to foundries.
