Chill casting with aluminium

Do you know an area in engineering and in the daily life where aluminium doesn’t score?

Aluminum is light and ideal for thin walled, pressure-tight and oscillation resistant components

Did you know that aluminum (Al) was only discovered in the 19th century? And today it is one of the most varied and widely used utility metals with a usage in nearly all areas of engineering and the daily life. Aluminum as a material is excellent for the production of components using chill casting – an ideal combination of material and shaping processes.


Aluminum alloys are very light and have a high conductibility of electricity and heat. Many aluminum alloys are very resistant to corrosion and their solidity values vary. This material is not harmful for the health in any way. Most aluminum alloys have excellent casting properties. Workpieces out of this material can be welded well.


Aluminum alloys can be used in many ways and can be used for a variety of products. Clients of Krause Precision Chill Casting particularly like the lightness. Furthermore, the material can be used for angular, thin-walled, pressure-tight and oscillation-proof cast parts.
