With over 18 years of casting and R&D expertise at our disposal, Bholster has brought die casting down to a science. We have a proven track record for guiding our customers with solutions that they can rely on.
Our mastery of the science that govern die casting has positioned us to work alongside the large automobile manufacturers who challenge the limits of this process. When casting thin large structural automotive castings, die cooling is a delicate balance between keeping the thin flat sections hot to be certain we can fill the die, while aggressively cool local thick sections to solidify quickly and meet target cycle times and simultaneously avoid soldering of the die steel. We have brought this down to a science!
There is still an unnecessary amount of trial and error in the design and process development of new structural automotive parts. We have eliminated this cost by using proper application of the science of heat transfer and fluid dynamics.
