Do I need a Surface Finish? There have been advancements in alloys that have allowed us to provide raw castings where a finish would normally have been required. So for instance, an aluminum 380 alloy, perhaps you would normally have wanted a chem film or anodizing for corrosion resistance, but with the advent of K-Alloy, […]
We’re rebuilding a die for a leading OEM of small engines and lawn & garden products. The refurb is basically finished, with 100% of parts in spec for sampling. We’ve extended the customer’s return on investment and we’ve also been able to demonstrate the way we approach project management and communications. We’re always interested in […]
Now that we’ve determined how valuable a good toolmaker is, it’s time to discuss finding the right one. The way you choose a toolmaker determines whether you wind up with a partner who helps you build market share, or one who makes production challenging and drives your quality ratings down. Let’s assume that you have […]
Dynacast’s Machine Building Center, located in Germany, has the engineering staff and facility capabilities to develop some of the most precise die casting machines in the world. Our 23 facilities rely on the Machine Building Center to provide them with the machines they require to meet our diverse customers needs.
Because many manufacturing companies operate on a B2B basis, they haven’t realized the same need as other industries to be involved in the world of social media. Why is social media important for the manufacturing industry? Will it really benefit the customers and the companies?
At Dynacast all of our machines need to meet certain standards. As a machine ages, technologies can become outdated and parts can wear. This blog post will give you an inside look at how we keep our machines up and running, and how we upgrade them to ensure the most up-to-date technology is available for our customers’ manufacturing needs.
My previous blog post focused on three key areas that are critical to the success and growth of manufacturing: our people, our customers, and our plants. For this post, I want to expand on one of those key areas, our people. Dynacast’s employees are the reason we are as profitable and successful as we are. Specifically, the culture we have been able to cultivate over the years has been a determining factor in our success. Our culture is rooted in trust, but also in the ability to be agile and adapt to changes. With 5,500 employees spread across 16 countries, it is hard to ensure that the culture is integrated fully, but it’s something that Dynacast works hard to achieve. How do we do it? It starts before someone is even considered for an open position.
As the Market Research Analyst for Dynacast, it’s my responsibility to gain an understanding of the many industries that we are involved in as well as the ones we could gain entry into. I scan a variety of news sources daily and have noticed that the wearable device industry has been getting a significant amount of press as manufacturers churn out new devices at a rapid pace. This is an industry that Dynacast has been involved in for years; we have worked with some of the biggest manufacturers around the globe and our parts will be in many of the 150 million devices that are projected to be purchased this year.
