Automakers are always looking for ways to save money, energy, time and materials in the production process. One Italian company, Idra, has made a crucial advance with its Giga Press, which can cast a front or rear platform in a single process.
Idra says this “one shot” casting can replace up to 250 pieces and reduce weight by 10 to 30 percent, among other benefits. Already, the Giga Press has drawn orders from some of the world’s most advanced automakers.
