The front-end-cap accommodates individual transmission components and at the same time builds an interface with the engine and the installation environment. The zinc die casting replaces a plastic version.
POWER-CAST Drumeta has been awarded at Zinkdruckguss-Wettbewerb 2015/2016
Winner "substitution by zinc die casting".
The reasoning of the jury: "The front-end-cap is cast thin-walled and yet has sufficient mechanical strength. The burr-free casting indicates the highest quality. The use of zinc in this function increases the longevity of the final product."
Is it possible to reduce cycle times by almost half, save 66% of recycled material and incidentally improve quality along the way? In brief: yes – it is. POWER-CAST Ortmann has demonstrated that it can be done with a casing lid that was die cast in zinc using FGS technology.

Winner „Resources and energy efficiency“
The FGS' potential was recognised at an early stage by the people responsible at POWER-CAST Ortmann and consequently realised within a development partnership with Frech that accompanied the system to readiness for reliable series production.
The Frech Gating System's suitability for cast objects depends on several factors. POWER-CAST Ortmann would be happy to help you assess whether your product is suitable.
