Technology Center

Advancing the State of Die Casting Today

The Technology Center is a collaborative partnership between L.K. Machinery, SAPP Inc., and five participant companies.  Showcasing a 4,400 ton die casting machine from L.K., the Technology Center uses the latest process technology to demonstrate what it takes to produce structural die castings and complex powertrain castings.

The center will serve primarily as a hub for die casting companies who are developing and testing new production-capable dies before they are launched into production. The target products include large automotive structural components like torque boxes, pillars, and structural nodes. Powertrain components like engine blocks and transmission cases, among others will also be developed here in conjunction with automotive OEM’s and Tier I casting suppliers.
