Successful project realization

ALUWAG AG has been active in the automotive and industrial sectors for years. Now the company has succeeded in gaining a foothold in the field of marine applications. The project for the newly opened industry is already running at full speed and with increasing quantities in series production.

Recently, ALUWAG AG has also entered the field of marine applications and is already producing in series for this purpose. Concretely, the produced parts are used in an outboard engine with a 2-speed gearbox. The production of the components has placed high technical demands on the engineering team, because: The assembly consists of three die-cast components. Not only the high component complexity, but also the choice of material depending on the heat treatment presented an exciting challenge. The design of the die casting tool was also a challenge. The project team mastered the new task with great effort, right through to the design of the machining process in coordination with the subsequent processes.

Material: AlSi10MnMg incl. heat treatment T5

Coating: Chromating and anodizing

Assembly requirements

  • Tightness requirements
  • Very high oil pressure during operation
  • corrosion requirements
  • mechanical properties (characteristic values)
  • high precision CNC machining

use of special technologies in the foundry

End product information

With the power of a V12 engine block, the 600hp Verado outboard delivers exceptional range and performance. Revolutionary improvements in handling and control are made possible by the first steerable gear case in the outboard segment and the industry’s first two-speed transmission. ALUWAG AG supplies the gearbox components for this.
