Innovations in Thermal Management for Mega-/Giga-Castings

Mega-/Giga-castings are increasingly used by various OEMs. Besides their size, the complexity of both the castings and the dies is huge. Energy efficient thermal management of such large casting dies is of vital importance for best flow lengths and feeding paths in parts with varying thicknesses. Sophisticated solutions are required for die thermal management and die thermal control units (TCUs) – optimizing heating-cooling as well as die life at the same time.

After 19 successful installation of thermal management solutions for Giga-presses, IECI will present 3 different scenarios for TCUs: (1) Conventional TCUs, (2) Solutions for large castings (MEGATHERMO) and (3) solutions for ultra-large (Mega-/Giga-castings - GIGATHERMO). All of them are managed by smart manifolds controlled with valves and a distribution tower designed for each project, optimizing the connections design. Monitoring and controlling everything is key as well, so this webinar will also explain sensors and monitoring options.

Presented by:

Federico Di Giovanni - Frederico has 10 years of experience in die casting industry. He began his career as a Product and Marketing team leader in IECI and then became head of the U.S. area. Starting from 2020 he is Marketing and Sales Director of IECI Group.

Martin Hartlieb - Martin has almost 30 years of experience in the automotive industry and 24 years in structural die casting. He worked 5 years for Behr (now Mahle), 12 years for Alcan and since 2012 in his own company Viami International. He works with alloy and process technology producers, foundries and die casters, various OEMS, as well as research labs on latest developments and technologies in the field of structural Die and Rheocasting.

This webinar will take place on April 23, 2024 at 12pm CDT. The cost to attend is $69 for Corporate Members, $99 for Individual Members and $119 for Non-Members.
