A.D.I. is 10% lighter than steel. Higher strength allows smaller sections than conventional SG castings, whilst retaining performance criteria.
Nearness to nett shape reduces machining costs.
Tooling is less expensive with improved lead time when compared to forging dies.
The amount of energy required to produce A.D.I. can be upto 50% less than steel casting and forging counterparts.
As a conversion from steel castings, forgings and fabrications, A.D.I. can very often offer worthwhile cost savings.
The Castings Plc Group, which has its own austempering plant, has experience in producing components for various applications within the agricultural, construction, automotive, trailer, mechanised handling and other industries.
We offer advice and technical assistance in ensuring the suitability of A.D.I. for each unique application, including prototype and pre-production development as required.
