Largest high pressure diecasting machine built in North America heading to Wisconsin

BuhlerPrince, Inc has partnered with Mercury Marine to deliver the largest high pressure die casting machine built in North America.

Mercury Marine is a world-leader in marine propulsion systems and chose the BuhlerPrince 4575CCA high pressure diecasting machine to support increased volume of its sterndrive engine platform. This mega-machine will be supplied to Mercury Castings at its global headquarters in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, in June 2016.
The BuhlerPrince model 4575CCA diecasting machine features 190.5cm of free space between the tie bars. Mercury Castings will use this additional tie bar space to help expand its in-house capability. The die casting industry is experiencing strong growth due to ongoing OEM light-weighting initiatives to fulfill stringent US government mandates. This high tonnage, large frame diecasting machine gives Mercury Marine the capabilities needed to produce the largest structural parts for automotive and other industries on a machine size like no other in North America.
“Buhler is very proud to partner with Mercury for their expanding die casting equipment requirements,” said Mark Los, president and CEO BuhlerPrince, Inc. “Continued investment in equipment and people allows BuhlerPrince, as the only diecast machine builder in North America, to provide innovative products to our customers, enabling them to be competitive on a global basis.”
