A Tier 1 automotive parts supplier, KS HUAYU AluTech GmbH is a 50:50-Joint Venture of Germany’s Rheinmetall AG and the Chinese automobile specialist HASCO. At Euroguss 2022, the company will be displaying its full range of production technologies and casting applications, with a special focus on sophisticated aluminium cast parts for e-mobility and modern lightweight structural parts.
As managing director Dr Michael Schachler explains, “With an unusually open booth design, we’ll be presenting ourselves once again as a partner and advisor to our customers in Germany and China.” Among other things, the company will be displaying an e-motor housing and battery tray developed in Germany and now being produced locally in China. “Along with components for contemporary vehicles with electric and semi-electric drives, we’ll also be presenting cast parts for conventional internal combustion engines like engine blocks and gearboxes”, adds Schachler.
The company is already well on the way to mastering the shift to modern mobility. By 2025 new applications will account for half of sales. “We’re currently tapping into new customer segments beyond the passenger car market: commercial vehicles, for instance, and leisure-oriented forms of mobility like motorcycles. Visitors to our booth will be able to inspect a new clutch housing for motorcycles”, notes managing director Ralph Lintz.
