Magna – Using a high-pressure die-casting process, we also manufacture 13 aluminum die-cast components for the body structure of the Cadillac CT6. One of the 13 components, a front body hinge-pillar, uses a one-piece die-cast construction to replace a 35-part stamped and welded construction, reducing the number of components in the entire body by 20%. The highpressure vacuum die-casting process allows for the manufacture of aluminum components with thinner walls (down to 1.8 mm) which increases structural strength, vehicle performance and reduces weight. The reduction in the number of parts also reduces assembly complexity for our customer.
