Cast piece with Combicore inlay tubes awarded
Cooling element gains special recognition at international pressure casting contest
During the opening ceremony of Euroguss in Nuremberg on January 16th 2012 this year’s prize winner of the International Aluminum Pressure Casting Contest was awarded.
The Moneva Foundry received special recognition for a casting incorporating a cooling element used in hybrid technology. The Jury of Research and Science praised the value of the innovation and high requirements within the casting industry.
The cast component will be an important step for hybrid technology to help solve a cooling problem encountered with battery technology. The casting incorporates a cooling tube within the aluminum casting, composed of a different aluminum alloy. This technology allows for the substitution with this casting for the parts previous constructed multiple sheets of material and enabling a considerable cost savings.
