Cold chamber – GDK-Series

Cold chamber diecasting technology




With locking forces from 22,000 kN to 46,000 kN, the FRECH cold chamber GDK-Series sets standards in the field of diecasting technology.

In addition to the development of high locking forces, the goal was to make a maximum amount of individual customer requirements possible.

In addition to building diecasting machines, our core competency is also the development of specific solutions to problems for individual customer requirements.

As the leading provider of diecasting technology, this ranges from individual diecasting machines to complete diecasting cells to turnkey provisioning of entire diecasting foundries - including diecasting dies.

Take advantage of our know-how and our expertise in engineering complex system solutions for application-based optimization of the casting process.
