Excellent solutions for cost-efficient light metal casting processes

A comprehensive understanding of micro-metallurgical aspects and their relationship with the macroscopic environment is fundamental to the development of new materials and their processing. Material development at LKR is based on alloy development, taking into account the processes involved in manufacturing components as well as the desired component characteristics. This process is complemented by experimental material and component characterisation.
