Florence, KY – October 19, 2017 – Parkway Products, LLC, one of the leading North American Magnesium Thixomolding manufacturers, announced today that two 450 Ton Thixomolding presses have been added to the Loveland, Colorado facility.

These additional machines expands Parkway’s current capability of three 220 Ton and two 280 Ton machines to having the ability to mold parts up to 1580 grams or up to a maximum projected area of 66 square inches. Now, this opens a new service to benefit both current and potential customers.

Magnesium Thixomolding is a niche process that is similar to Thermoplastic Injection Molding. This process combines the material benefits of die casting with the manufacturing flexibility and fine detail of injection molding, allowing manufacturers to integrate the mechanical and thermal conductivity properties of magnesium as well.
