Ceramic Composite Die For Metalcasting (Inventions and Innovation)
The goals of this project are to design, fabricate, and demonstrate molds that
will withstand the copper motor rotor die casting environment for an economically
acceptable life of 1,000 or more cycles.
Using an innovative chemical vapor composites material-forming process, ThermoTrex
will demonstrate that tungsten and molybdenum can be used to manufacture cost- and
energy-efficient casting molds.
