|Even solid aluminium ingot material for the machining production of large blow molds, deep drawing or foaming tools can currently only be procured at high prices and sometimes with long delivery times. The Blöcher foundry is stepping into the breach here and now supplies numerous toolmakers with high-precision, tempered molds made of cast aluminium. Thanks to innovative additive manufacturing systems and large-scale milling technology, even geometrically complex tools can be produced in record times. |
A CNC Styropor large-scale milling machine, a robot-assisted 3D sand printer and extensive know-how in the fields of stainless steel tube processing and aluminium casting – are the core competencies with which the Blöcher foundry can score points with many toolmakers these days.
Modern Cast Aluminum as a Fast Bottleneck Solution The reason: Especially toolmakers who, for example, used machining technology for the production of large blow molds or foaming tools lack the correspondingly dimensioned aluminium ingot material for this purpose. It is currently enormously expensive and difficult to procure. The reasons for this range from the US sanctions policy to the pandemic-related transport and supply chain problems. In searching for ways out of this supply dilemma, more and more moldmakers are now rediscovering aluminium casting as a cost-effective and quickly feasible alternative. “The first concrete call for help of this kind reached us a few weeks ago from other European countries. However, by now, word must have gotten around that we can provide even sophisticated cavities with complex, near-contour tempering for casting large blow-molded or foamed components in just a few weeks. Inquiries for our services are currently increasing significantly,” reports company boss Jürgen Blöcher.
