Castings for electric vehicles and PiQ²’s solutions

Castings for electric vehicles and PiQ²’s solutions

In recent years, the automotive industry has seen the transition from a market mainly dominated by endothermic engines (fossil fuels – methane, diesel, and petrol) towards a significant share of electric vehicles of various types (from hybrid to full electric)....
The PQ² diagram of the mold (part II)

The PQ² diagram of the mold (part II)

In the previous article we analyzed the PQ2 diagram of the injection shot-end. We understood that it is necessary to predict how the machine can deliver the energy to fill the mold cavity with metal. Now, by drawing the PQ2 curve of the mold, we will see how the metal...
