Thixomolding is our core business

We have expanded our facilities to handle higher demand and added two new machines in 2015

WE DO PROTOTYPING!

We do everything from low volume prototyping to higher volume production
Thixomolding is a semi-solid (Thixotropic) molding process for magnesium somewhat analogous to plastic injection molding.

Magnesium chips are fed at ambient temperature into a heated barrel and propelled forward by a rotating screw.

The combined heat from resistance type heater bands and the shearing force provided by the rotating screw create a slurry of spheroidal solid particles within a molten matrix.

This slurry is forced into a pre-heated mold to produce high precision, ultra-thin wall net or near net shaped parts.

The process combines the benefits of die casting and plastic injection molding.
