Innovative technologies for processing light metal alloys have undergone enormous development in recent years. These include rheocasting – a special casting process in which aluminum in a semi-solid state is processed into lightweight components with special material properties. SAG has brought this process to series maturity and is the technology leader in this field. Advantages of rheocasting:
The high strength and ductility, very good weldability and conductivity of rheocasting components enable efficient lightweight construction in many areas.
Less weight leads to greater range and lower energy consumption. Rheocasting can thus contribute to CO2 emission reduction with considerable weight savings.
More efficiency in the production process: Rheocasting can avoid costly reworking of castings.
