Aluminum Die-Casting tooling test trial
As you can see in the photos, these front Aluminum front chassis are not trimmed and packed heading for some where~ I suppose these are heading to Fremont Tesla for full dimensional inspection and after that engineers will test the integrity and strength of these castings.
In the meantime, mold engineers will adjust the runners and cooling, or mold taper which they have encountered in the trial stage. Above procedures are typical practice for the Aluminum Die-Casting industry.
Sometimes it takes more than 10 times for new project with new usage to be approved.
These are often neglected and un-aware of.
