Our products

Product category: Cold chamber die-casting machinery

Production Range:

- Cold chamber die casting machines from 420 to 4200 Ton for aluminium and magnesium alloys

- 2-platen machines from 900 to 4200 Ton (toggle free)

- Hot chamber machines for zinc and magnesium alloys

- Semi-solid rheocasting technology (SSR™ system patented by MIT)

- Fully automatic die casting cells

Since the beginning of its activity in 1946, IDRA has always distinguished itself for its commitment in innovation. In fact, it was the first supplier of pressure die casting machines to produce toggle-type machines which revolutionised the market during the Fifties and Sixties, and to manufacture the first series of two-platen toggle free machines at the beginning of 2000.

The latest machine line “OL S”, from 420 to 4200 tons, remains true to the heavy dimensions which characterize IDRA machines and made them renowned worldwide, employing at the same time the most advanced technical solutions, among which the closed loop control of the injection speed and intensification pressure, whose high velocity and response time are particularly important in case of high quality demanding castings.

The same injection performance is obtained on the second generation of 2-platen machines, characterized by a clamping unit individually mounted on the 4 tie bars with hydraulic actuators of reduced oil volume to guarantee the same clamping strength as standard toggle machines.

Not only high integrity castings, but also structural components for motor vehicle frame and body are requested today in Aluminium with mechanical characteristics which cannot be reached by means of traditional die casting technology. This is why IDRA has developed the new machines line called NoX (No Oxide), using the principle of high vacuum level in the die, which enables the production of structural castings with high metallurgical integrity.

About us

Company details

Established in 1946 in Brescia, where the old tradition of metallurgical production is still present, IDRA is today the company with the longest tradition among the manufacturers of pressure die casting machines for non-ferrous alloys.

More than 13.000 die casting machines have been produced and over 9.000 are still working evidencing their long life and solidity.

The choice made at the beginning to focus on the machines sturdiness and structural quality led Idra to be the supplier of the main worldwide foundries in the die casting field and to gain an acknowledged reputation.

The long cooperation with the most demanding and technically advanced customers has led to manufacture completely automatic die casting cells for the production of a wide range of parts in the automotive, electro-mechanical and household appliances industries.

Advanced technology including close loop real time injection control and remote diagnostics via Internet giving good access for production and service information and Semi-Solid Rheocasting, patented by MIT, for high integrity components represent only some of the solutions available to the most advanced foundries.

Idra die casting machines with the new "OL S" and 2-platen machine lines represent the latest state of art, from 420 Ton to 4200 Ton model intended to produce mainly large castings for automotive industry.

In conclusion Idra represents the ideal partner to solve production problems and to obtain proposals due to the advanced technology gained by experience.
