Launch of Carat 840 and Carat 920

Uzwil (Switzerland), November 3, 2021 – With the Carat 840 and Carat 920, Bühler has further expanded its portfolio as the automotive industry’s demand for larger and more complex parts continues to increase. These larger parts require new production processes, a new challenge for customers. With its experience on current large solutions, Bühler is their partner to innovate over the entire production cycle of these even larger parts.

“Automakers are rethinking production in a number of ways. Our Carat series enables them to realize their ideas for even bigger parts, and we help our customers develop the necessary processes, ”says Cornel Mendler, Managing Director of Bühler Die Casting. The new Carat 840 and Carat 920 with locking forces of up to 92,000 kilonewton (kN) currently complement the upper end of Bühler’s die-casting platforms. The Carat portfolio is the company’s solution for large die-cast parts. “We are seeing a huge increase in demand for bigger and bigger machines. With our Carat 840 and Carat 920, we can offer our customers solutions for large structural parts with complex geometries and new body parts in white, ”explains Cornel Mendler.

The Carat series offers the highest productivity

Bühler’s vision for the future of the die-casting industry is: 0% scrap, 40% less cycle time and 24/7 availability. It is even more important to move towards this vision: the bigger the castings, the greater the leverage to minimize production costs by reducing scrap, cycle time and increasing the availability of the die-casting system. . The design of the Carat 840 and Carat 920 positively impacts the quality of these complex thin-walled parts that require an extremely powerful and precise injection unit and consistent application of the locking force.

The Carat dual chainring series comes with a patented and reinforced chainring design for consistent clamping force application that allows minimal deflection and a high degree of dimensional accuracy of castings. In combination with Bühler’s unique real-time controlled injection unit and DataView control system, Carat delivers the highest injection dynamics and quality – blow after blow.

Production close to customers

Bühler’s die-casting platforms are manufactured in Asia, Europe and North America, ensuring short delivery times through short transport routes and a reliable supply of spare parts. Customers can count on a stable global manufacturing network. Local service engineers support foundries and vehicle manufacturers with rapid on-site support, remote support and in-depth training on site or at Bühler’s application centers.

Exceptional locking forces at the scale of the Eiffel Tower

The largest Carat die-casting machines are as big as a house, 8 meters tall, and stand on a floor space of around 100 square meters. “The Carat 920 is capable of injecting over 200 kilograms of liquid aluminum into a die in milliseconds, thus keeping the die tight by applying a force of 92,000 kN to it. Imagine locking the die with the 9,000 tonnes of the Eiffel Tower at each stroke, ”explains Michael Cinelli, Die Casting Product Manager at Bühler.

First address for large room solutions

Bühler has been at the forefront of large die-cast parts for 15 years and is the world market leader in this segment. Bühler rethinks, designs and commissions complete solutions and can therefore offer process solutions with its partners from ingot to body shop. There are many complexities in manufacturing and handling such large parts that smaller parts do not have. The die-casting cell peripherals must also be able to handle these parts. As parts become too large and heavy to be transported by people, the robots and transport racks form a continuous transport system and take over the handling of the casting at the body shop. “Bühler can provide solutions for all of these processes with his extensive practical knowledge in commissioning and operating such large cells, in collaboration with foundries around the world,” says Michael Cinelli.
