Features of the TOMAQ Method
- Few casting defects
- Rapid cooling speed reduces cycle time
- Realizes reduced cost
- Allows a larger number of units to be cast than standard gravity casting methods do
- Realizes a fine internal structure
- Minimal variation in mechanical properties
- Realizes high strength and high toughness
- Suited to the casting of collapsible cores
Aluminum Pipe Cast-in Technique using the TOMAQ Method
This is a casting technique in which aluminum pipes are finished using a high-accuracy three-dimensional bending technique, and cast in using rigorously temperature-controlled molten aluminum. Nippon Light Metal's integrated caliper body castings using cast-in aluminum pipes as hydraulic channels simultaneously realize high rigidity and light weight. (A world first.)
A Casting Technique using Iron Pull-out Cores
This is a unique technique in which long pipe-shaped iron cores are removed at a low draft angle.
This technique produces less gas than the generally used collapsible core method, enabling the realization of excellent internal quality.
