How the development of die casting has changed the automotive industry

Application of Die Casting Parts in the Automobile Industry In the automobile industry, magnesium and aluminum alloys are widely used in car bodies and different parts. As early as the 1920s and 1930s in Germany, you could see people using magnesium alloys for different parts; and with the development of high-strength magnesium and aluminum alloy materials, they were gradually incorporated into structural parts. Die casting is the main method of producing such parts.
In the past, only smaller parts were die-cast, including wheels, engine blocks, gearboxes, and pillars. They did not cause significant weight loss. With the advancement of various die-casting technologies, such as clamping force and injection speed and pressure, it is now also possible to die-cast larger parts, such as car doors and chassis. In short, the introduction of this material has brought significant weight reduction and subsequent fuel consumption reduction.

Automobile lightweighting has been a hot topic for many years, and with increasingly stringent emission standards and fuel-saving measures, it has also attracted more and more attention. The automotive industry has also responded to this trend, gradually replacing steel parts with aluminum parts, thereby stimulating demand.
