Global competence in lightweight construction for customer's benefit
Today, DGS Druckguss Systeme AG is one of the most significant producers for aluminium and magnesium lightweight parts in die casting technique. The automotive desire for global platform strategies answers DGS with its locations in Switzerland, Czech Republic and China. The focus doesn't rest only on the know-how of the technology for tools but also on the permanent development of processes and on the installation engineering itself.
That's why DGS invested double-digit millions annual in the production of structural parts. For us it is the essential process technology around the topic lightweight construction of car bodies. DGS resorts to state-of-the-art equipment which copes with power efficiency in the company. Of course, we don't want only bring our dues for reduction of Co2 in automotive engineering, also important for us is an ecological and power-saving production. We support this with energy recovery in our facilities. Additional, DGS attempts to increase the economic utilisation with "Continuous Improvements" of all processes.
Already during research and development we apply the wide expert knowledge and innovation of our own engineers.
Avoidance of process interfaces, consistently quality surveillance and documentation and reduction of transport costs are some of the items which DGS provoked to install an ultra-modern and complex process chain at all locations. The process chain includes the die casting implements, heat treatment, machining, assembling and cleaning inclusive passivation. By employing of miscellaneous alloys in combination with verified recipes for heat treatments we can achieve your requested mechanical strength properties.
