Die casting of zamak.
The main activity of Metalcromo is zamak molding. Zamak is an alloy of zinc containing a minimum percentage of aluminum and copper, variable depending on the alloys ( we normally use Zama 2, 3 and 5 alloys). The main advantages of this material are its mechanical characteristics, the fluidity that allows to obtain thin walls and complex geometries, and an unparalleled quality in surface coatings.
The molding machines.
The production process of hot chamber die casting of zamak
(also executed through vacuum technology
where necessary), uses fully computerized injection molding machines and specialized personnel
Metalcromo has a latest generation, fully automated machine
fleet, made of robotic islands
for the extraction
and the eventual trimming and/or separation
of the various die casting products.
Our company has an island for the immediate testing of the new equipments, the production of small series
and prototyping realization
Metalcromo fleet consists of a press 80ton Colosio, two presses 140ton Colosio
, three presses 140ton GREEN LINE Colosio
, two presses 140ton GREEN LINE ELECTRIC Colosio
, a press 200Ton GREEN LINE Colosio
and a press 250ton GREEN LINE Colosio
We have four machines in four working stations including dedicated Kawasaki robots
and trimming presses of 15ton; the others are equipped with rotary separators
located directly on the press, used for the automatic separation of parts/in-gates.
The versatility of our machines.
The characteristic of our presses is their versatility
: all the fixtures and fittings of our presses are standardized and this allows us to use each mold in at least 6 available presses.
Thanks to this solution, our deliveries are always on time and in a short time we provide the customer with the requested goods.
Today in our foundry, over 500 molds
Efficiency and new technologies.
Thanks to advanced technical solutions, our company also produces castings of very thin thicknesses
, from a minimum weight of 3 grams to a maximum of 2500 grams, and works at the same time on different items of high precision
, without problems of microporosity and guaranteeing strict tolerances
for small and large series.
Our constant growth!
The molding department
is the pride of Metalcromo. Its efficient and fast functioning has allowed the company to grow over the years and to become a reference point in national and international markets.
