This is a great example of Bruschi Co-Design. Not only does it feature a new, stunning aesthetic that required high level surface quality, but also a practical design that allows for assembly without machining.
Deep analysis of tolerances and shapes in matching position allowed to get parts with no machining operations. The study of draft angles between matching parts has been performed in order to avoid any further operation in assembly process.
To reach the aesthetic quality needed, its crucial to keep a low porosity rate: during powder coating process the castings are heated up to around 200° C, therefore any air entrapping must be avoided. Under vacuum die-casting allows production of castings with no problem of blistering or bubble creation.
For this project, on 23rd September 2016 in Brescia, Italy, Bruschi won the prestigious European Zinc Die Casting Competition 2016.
Leider gibt es für diesen Aussteller kein deutsches Firmenprofil.
Bruschi is an Italian company focused on HPDC (high precision die casting) industrial design and production. With over 70 years of experience in the field, Bruschi is considered one of the most important players in Europe for the production of zinc-alloy die-cast materials and products.
Ever since its foundation in 1948 Bruschi has never stopped investing in research and development. Thanks to its brilliant design solutions, Bruschi was presented three times with NADCA Award: first in 1997, then in 2002 and in 2016. In the same year Bruschi won the European Zinc Die Casting Competition, organized by International Zinc Association.
Bruschi offers to its clients innovative and all-inclusive solutions, from product concept and design to critical components manufacturing and their integration with original produced components: its approach covers design, casting, machining operations and assembly.
An extensive experience with die casting allows for complete control, making it easier to identify any constructional obstacle while the project is still in the first stage of analysis.
In order to reach customers’ needs since the first phase of collaboration, Bruschi offers its Co-Design service, which consists of a number of activities that have as a goal to increase the product’s value while reducing the costs, both for the customer side and the production side. Co-design is a collaboration between the client and the die caster in a crucial phase of product design. In this phase a constant exchange of information and experiences allows the supplier to highlight the critical points requested by the client, whether they’d be aesthetical, functional or structural, in order to act directly on the design in a strictly collaboration with the client.
Weight reduction, no post-production operation needed, direct consulting for the finishing, optimization of the mold, simplification of the components and reduction of assembly costs are just a few of the advantages in a combined productive system, which start with Co-Design, that including design, die casting, machining and assembly.
Thanks to this integrated work system, production’s time and costs can be heavily reduced while still granting a high structural quality. It also provides the costumer with better assistance: having to deal with a single player who is knowledgeable of all the production phases, allows for an open and continuous dialogue, leading to quicker solutions.
Bruschi stands out for its ability to find solutions to improve the quality and performance of industrial components in zinc alloy and simultaneously integrate them more easily into complex structures.
Bruschi is involved in various research and development projects in zinc and industrial design. In fact, it collaborates daily with several universities and research centers in Europe, including the Politecnico di Milano, Brescia University as well as the Zink International Associations in Brussels.
Thanks to these collaborations Bruschi can guarantee the expertise to cover the entire production process from Co-Design to die casting, from finishing to assembly.
