aluminum R&D center

We have a R&D center that is independent of production, where we conduct basic and applied research on aluminum alloys and their casting methods, and work toward the development and practical application of new production methods.
Aluminum that can be cut with a knife

The optimally heated semi-molten billet is firm enough to stand on its own and soft enough to be cut with a knife.

Thixo Casting

Thixo casting is a metal mold casting method in which billets heated to a semi-molten state are formed in a metal mold at low speed and low pressure. We have developed a metal/sand hybrid-mold technology that utilizes a property of very good molten metal flow and our core technology as a sand mold aluminum casting manufacturer.

Material Development

We have developed AsG-1, a casting material with a thermal conductivity more than twice that of conventional die-casting materials.The thixocasting feature of high flowability enables longer pins and fins to secure a larger heat-dissipating area, thus providing sufficient heat dissipation.
