Die casting temperature control
HPDC by Gefond offers innovative sustainable and integrated 4.0 solutions for die casting temperature control.
HPDC by Gefond manufactures water and multi-circuit cooling and temperature control systems for industrial applications. HPDC by Gefond develops a complete line of machines dedicated to light alloy foundries.
Compared with two conventional power units placed in twin plants engaged in the same processing, The study conducted by ESCo CertiNergia analyzed the energy performance of the Greencasting power unit.
HPDC by Gefond power packs represent a decisive step forward toward the use of energy-saving technologies by providing key operational benefits in addition to energy savings such as longer mold life, better casting quality, and reduced cycle time. All this translates into savings and increased productivity.
TARGETED HEAT MANAGEMENT
The innovative technology involves targeted and synchronized heat removal on a circuit-by-circuit basis, unlike traditional thermoregulation, which involves constantly circulating a fluid (water or oil) in the mold at a constant temperature.
From the analysis of most diecasting plants during production, HPDC by Gefond was born: the heat input of aluminum to the mold is normally sufficient to keep it hot, and it is therefore unnecessary to heat the temperature control fluid during normal production.
ADVANTAGES IN PRODUCTION
By differentiating thermoregulation in the various zones of the mold, plus increased heat removal, the lubrication cycle can be reduced, thereby increasing productivity and limiting the cost of waste disposal.
In addition, an increase in productivity between 12% and 14% has been verified due in part to a decrease in scrap and downtime related to mold maintenance. Finally, the savings from eliminating oil from the process should be emphasized.
