Hyundai WIA wants what all manufacturing companies want: optimum component quality combined with efficient material usage. As a rule, more melt means higher costs and more production effort – but who wants that anyway? Therefore, manufacturing companies try to optimize costs by reducing material quantities. However, in casting processes, this does not always guarantee the best quality in the end.
Hyundai WIA produces differential gearboxes for automobiles made of ductile iron GJS-700. The demands on gearboxes are high: As safety-critical castings, they should be durable and withstand high mechanical loads. Therefore, the best casting quality is required to ensure durability, avoid unnecessary and costly repairs, and thus live up to the company’s good reputation.
