New HPDC at Mercury CastingsMay 15, 2017
New capabilities allow Mercury Castings to produce larger diecastings for high-horsepower engines or lightweight automotive structures
In April, Mercury Castings in Fond du Lac, WI, commissioned a 4,500-ton, BuhlerPrince 4575CCA diecasting machine, the largest HPDC system operating in North America.
Mercury Castings produces aluminum castings by high-pressure diecasting and lost foam casting, for Mercury Marine engines as well as manufacturers of automotive, agricultural, and industrial systems.
“This new machine positions us to make castings that no one else in the industry can do,” according to Mike Meyer, Mercury Castings general manager, speaking at the commissioning last month. “With this new machine, Mercury can make larger, lightweight structural components and reduce the overall weight of our engine by producing more efficient castings.”
