As the UK’s leading aluminium die casting specialist, it is our responsibility to innovate through research and development. Continued innovation ensures our customers, our industry and the environment all benefit from the latest developments in die casting.
At JVM Castings we feel it is important to lead this innovation through internal and external collaborative research projects. Partnering with our contractors, suppliers and leading UK universities allows the full manufacturing supply chain to benefit. Our current and past projects include:
Each of these projects are aimed at exploring materials and methods that will help create lighter weight, stronger, more cost effective products with a reduced carbon footprint.
Jaguar Land Rover challenged our designers to create a single casting to replace a complex assembly of 2 castings, pressings, extrusions, self-pierce rivets and fixings.
Our team were able to meet the challenge and a single casting was designed through multiple Magmasoft simulations and simultaneous engineering, culminating in a casting that reduced the total assembly weight by more than 50%. This new lean design helped the F-Type achieve its low carbon footprint.
This innovative casting design led JVM Castings to win the prestigious NADCA (North American Die Casting Association) International Diecasting Award for innovation.
