Georg Fischer commissions production-scale pilot aluminum LPFC process.

Cymat Corp., Toronto, and Georg Fischer, Schaffhausen, Switzerland, announced they have successfully commissioned a new, commercial-scale pilot aluminum foam production system at Georg Fischer's facility in Schaffhausen.

This system can be used to produce near-net shape aluminum foam components for both automotive and non-automotive applications.

Dr. Leopold Kniewallner, Georg Fischer's automotive director of R&D, said, "Cymat has successfully transitioned their bench-scale, near-net shape low pressure foam casting (LPFC) process into a truly productionscale commercial process."

"We are very pleased by the results of the extensive testing carried out during commissioning of the commercial scale pilot production system at Georg Fischer's facility," said Dr. Paul A. Tichauer, Cymat's president and CEO.
