Lightweight Innovations for Tomorrow (LIFT) is a consortium with several industries, universities and research institutes. It is operated by the American Lightweight Materials Manufacturing Innovation Institute (ALMMII). One of their projects, melt 5a, is to develop high silicon ductile iron (DI) alloys with improved mechanical properties and thin walled DI castings. These alloys have high strength to weight ratio compared to that of standard ductile iron (7003). Using these alloys, components can be re-designed that are much lighter which results in improved fuel efficiency, and reduced manufacturing costs and emissions. I

In this project, a differential case is being re-designed ...
