CWM Wins 2013 NADCA Casting Competition

For the third year in a row, CWM won an award in NADCA’s annual International Die Casting Competition. In 2013, CWM won in the Magnesium Over 2 lbs. category for a projector housing.

Rob Malarky, CWM Engineering Project Manager, worked with our customer’s engineering team to convert two magnesium components into a single unit. Internal features of this magnesium die cast part were redesigned to make it simpler and easier to manufacture. After the redesign, the customer gained a 40% cost reduction. This was realized by eliminating a second casting, die trim, additional machining and dowel pin insertion. The magnesium die cast part also incurred an 8% weight reduction due to the change in geometry.  Rob talks about the process in this exclusive interview, also located on our YouTube channel.
