Vostermans Alu Foundries produces parts for vacuum pumps: a higher precision and reduced costs
For a manufacturer of vacuum pumps Vostermans Alu Foundries recently produces two parts: the body and cover.
The die casting parts are delivered according to special requirements concerning porosity and a precise sizing.
The special assistance (e.g. by casting simulation) and co-development by Vostermans Alu Foundries in this project consisted of upgrading the production of aluminum from sand casting to die casting. The additional advantages for the customer consisted of a cost reduction because of a lower weight due to the manufacturing of thin-walled parts and due to the higher manufacturing of dimensional tolerances, resulting in a reduction of processing costs is realized
