Key Aluminum Die Casting Machine Manufacturers
There are key manufacturers in the Aluminum Die Casting Machines Industry. While this page doesn't describe all of them, we hope to give you an overview and description of the major companies.
HPM, one of the best die casting equipment manufacturers in the USA was founded in 1877 to make apple presses. During World War II, HPM provided hydraulic technology support for US army. During the fast development of U.S.A., HPM turns to manufacture advance equipment including plastics injection molding machine, sheet extrusion lines and die-casting machines. The production bases of HPM were in Ohio (headquarter) and Schwerin in Germany.
Yizumi bought HPM’s intellectual property in March 2011. That included the right to use the HPM brand name, mechanical drawings, engineering designs and customer lists of plastics injection molding machine, die casting machine and extrusion machine, some high precise equipment. The acquisition of HPM intellectual property will definitely boost the progress of its technology innovation and international competitiveness. It is an important step to realize the plan of overseas R&D center in overseas countries.
Idra's expertise was born and has grown in cold chamber aluminum die casting machines. The experience accumulated in this field allowed Idra to widen its production to injection molding machines and to zinc and magnesium alloys.
Idra manufacturing cells are built to last and are a clear sign of long held values – Quality, Sturdiness and Reliability. Couple this with a willingness to help the customers realize their objectives, working in close collaboration.
