DGS Produces One of the Largest Die Cast Parts Worldwide

Each hour, the sun radiates enough energy onto the earth to cover the annual energy demand of the whole world population. For better exploitation of this solar energy, DGS Druckguss Systeme AG, St. Gallen, Switzerland, produces frames for hot water solar panels. Recently, the production of these frames was changed from welded extrusion molded parts to aluminum die castings. The success of this change was so noteworthy that the new frame received a ”Special Recognition“ award in the International 2014 Aluminum Die Casting Competition.
