Lightweight design is still one of the dominant topics in matters of urban mobility or automotive engineering. Along with polymer-based injection molding solutions, Yizumi also offers machines for processing magnesium by thixomolding. The world’s biggest system was recently delivered to Frankenberg (Eder), for Hettich’s castwerk business unit. According to the CEO Michael Schran, Hettich intends to use the machine, with 12,500 kN clamping force, to produce e-scooters, parts for e-bikes and large vehicle cockpits.

The machine developed by employees of Yizumi Germany and the parent company, Yizumi China, does not yet represent the final stage of development. According to CSO Hans Wobbe, the development plans currently envisage the biggest machine having 30,000 kN clamping force, based on a modular system, derived from the range of possible parts. Its development will be continued by a network of university partners supported by industrial users, in particular the institute of foundry technology at the University of Kassel,Germany, and the Hettich Group’s castwerk business unit.
