Aluminum Casting Applications

Casting Applications-Widespread use in the automotive industry and homes!

The automotive industry is the largest market for aluminum casting. Cast products make up more than half of the aluminum used in cars. Cast aluminum transmission housings and pistons have been commonly used in cars and trucks since the early 1900s. Parts of small appliances, hand tools, lawnmowers and other machinery are produced from thousands of different unique aluminum casting shapes. The casting product most often used by consumers is cookware, the first aluminum product that was made available for everyday use.

Especially, after the heatable aluminum alloys are available, this type alloys have better mechanical properties. Even some of aluminum alloys can have comparable to some steel parts but with less weight, and can reduce energy consumption. That makes the alloys use more widely.
