01Tederic aspires to be a global leader in molding equipment and solutions
It's a vision and a belief
As night falls, Tederic's global headquarters building glows in the dark. Dormant for nearly two years, the Tederic IKON450 die-casting machine in the factory is about to be awakened.
At the press conference, Zheng Jianguo, chairman of Tederic Machine Co., LTD., accurately summarized the original intention and vision of Tederic's entry into the integrated die-casting field with "the right time, the right place, and the right people". In the face of the current demand trend of the automotive industry for large and ultra-large integrated die-casting islands, the Chinese solution of new energy vehicle manufacturing is constantly refreshing the new height of intelligent equipment. Tederic has been deeply engaged in molding equipment for 20 years, has a deep understanding of the key technologies and capital strength of large-scale molding equipment, and has enough capacity to carry fast and stable die-casting machine projects. In the future, IKON will bring a double breakthrough of responsibility and value to the progress of the die-casting industry.

At the press conference, Zhang Hongpeng, general manager of the Tederic Die Casting Machine Division, shared the strategic planning and product introduction of the Tederic IKON die-casting machine. He mentioned, "Over the past two years, Tederic has concentrated on research and development by researching industry needs, determining product positioning, integrating European die-casting machine technology, talent, and resources. Given the requirements of ultra-large structural parts and customer pain points, in-depth research has been carried out in the design and development of ultra-large structural parts, heat-treat-free materials, ultra-large mold design and process development, ultra-large die casting machine design, manufacturing, and the overall integration of intelligent ultra-large die casting units. IKON's full range of die-casting machines of 1,400 to 9,200 tons has been developed, and mass production will be brought to the market in 2024."
IKON series of large die-casting machines focus on the field of automotive structural parts, led by Tederic Munich R & D center research and development, performance against the European system. IKON series of large die-casting machines break through the traditional design concept of the industry and will bring value beyond the expectations of customers in the automotive industry.

Zhang Hongpeng said, "After 20 years of development, Tederic has become A benchmark for the automotive industry and European brands in the plastic molding equipment industry, and is currently the only A-share main board listed enterprise in the industry." On the occasion of Tederic's 20th anniversary, we launched the die-casting machine project as the second growth curve of Tederic's future rapid development. In addition, Tederic's many years of experience in R&D, manufacturing, and delivery of high-end equipment for overseas markets, as well as its strategic experience in the standard European system and focusing on the molding of high-end automotive parts, have greatly helped our die-casting machine project.
In the future, Tederic will create greater value for customers in the automotive industry with a variety of molding equipment and solutions such as plastic molding and metal molding, so that customers can obtain competitive auto parts production capacity and obtain better return on investment."
02Excellent technology creates a new era of integrated die-casting
Black technology's strong empowerment
At present, in the field of automotive die casting, the quality of structural parts accounts for 20-30% of the quality of automotive maintenance, which is the key area of integrated die casting lightweight. Due to the large size of the product, the long filling stroke, the large difference in thickness, and the relatively dispersed important position, the structural parts have become one of the more difficult categories in the field of auto parts die casting production, but for the processing equipment for the production of structural parts, the imported die casting machine equipment has occupied the majority of the market.
Zhang Hongpeng, general manager of the Tederic Die Casting Machine Division, said: "As a latecomer in the die casting machine industry, we want to challenge high-difficulty molding products. Based on Tederic's native international technical advantages, the IKON450 will focus on the production of automotive structural parts. Equipped with an SNP real-time control injection system and a three-plate direct pressing die closing system, with excellent performance, extreme stability, and reliability, it will redefine the large cold chamber die casting machine, realize domestic replacement of imports, and deduce the classic integrated high-end metal forming equipment.
There is something inside, and the appearance is the highlight.
At the press conference, Zhang Hongpeng announced the core highlight of the IKON - SNP real-time control injection system.
The system is equipped with a custom-developed 10,000Hz scan frequency controller, SmartCast casting process system, fifth-order PID algorithm, MCK large model self-learning algorithm, BLC oil circuit system, custom-developed high-response servo valve, and high-performance check valve. SNP real-time control injection system, with more than 40% of the conventional dynamic injection force, more than 70G ultra-high acceleration, speed, pressure, and position repetition accuracy than the traditional die casting machine has been greatly improved. At present, the IKON three-plate direct pressure clamping system has obtained a Chinese invention patent.
In addition, the clamping force of the IKON clamping system is evenly distributed, and the deviation of the clamping force of the Corinth column is less than 3%. Inorganic hinge structure, close to lifelong maintenance free, with automatic clamping force compensation function, combined with special formula template material, the service life of the clamping mechanism is longer.
Overall, the IKON series of large die-casting machines, with no porosity injection, no flash molding, and stable, durable advantages, is an excellent structural part-forming solution. In the field of ultra-large structural parts, Tederic has the overall turnkey solution capability to meet the design and manufacturing of ultra-large integrated structural parts for new energy vehicles.
