- Aesthetically pleasing component
Advantage of the CIREX casting process
This visible part has a smooth surface and is no longer a welded structure. In addition to being stronger, it is also more pleasing visually (visible portion blackened). Due to the freedom of design, the bracket is reinforced in places where the greatest forces occur. No machining is required because of the high degree of precision of the casting process. This achieves significant savings in production costs.
