Casting and Characterization of An Aluminum Alloy Car Engine Bracket Produced By Squeeze Casting Technology 91A114

The following paper describes the experimental activity regarding the setting-up and characterization of a car engine bracket in Al-Si12Cu2FeZn-F alloy produced by the new technology squeeze casting.
LExperimentation was carried out at the Alures squeeze casting pilot plant. Static and dynamic characterization (fatigue resistance on test samples and the component itself) was carried out at Teksid and Fiat Auto.
Characterization test have demonstrated the considerable advantages offered by the new technology compared with conventional production processes.
