An IDRA OL-160 (with cold chamber) pressure die casting machine is available for us from 2009. It has a modern injection checking and control system. From 2011, a delivery system with a vaccuming device is built into the instrument with oil- and water colling system.
From 2012 we are up for research in the field of Semi-solid rheocasting (with cold chamber), due to our new device of casting machine. We are able to investigate mechanical properties of compositions by a sort of tests (tensile test, hardness tests, OM, SEM-EDX microscopy, etc.), therefore relationships between materials sturctures and parameters of machines can be revealed.
