Fully integrated vertical process

F.O.M.T.’s main competitive leading edge has always been its ability to deliver parts ready for use on the customer’s assembly lines. The process stretches from design (simultaneous engineering) adopting the most widely-used specific CAD programs: thus allowing the optimization in the construction of the casting and machining tooling.
The aluminum or zinc alloys castings are then produced using gravity or high pressure die castings technology. Castings are then machined and assembled.

ASC Technology

F.O.M.T. has developed, in collaboration with the “Politecnico di Torino”, an innovative process that is an alternative to the traditional processes of foundry or forging. ASC process (Advanced Squeeze Casting) can be considered as a forging performed on an alloy in the molten state.
The ASC technology can be used to produce parts subjected to relevant static and dynamic mechanical stress, whilst ensuring a significant reduction of production and tooling costs.
The new process is a compromise between expensive processes and it’s able to ensure high mechanical characteristics for the part and not expensive processes with established technological limits.

Gravity die casting

Up to 10-kg, cored and coreless light alloy gravity castings.

Gravity die casting Positioning the core in the mold

High pressure die casting

High pressure die casting on horizontal cold chamber die casting machines with a closing force from 150 tons up to 1200 tons.

Heat treatments

Solution annealing and ageing through sequences of heating/cooling cycles in order to increase the mechanical properties of the finished part.
