The founder of Solidworx, Anton Bezuidenhout is well known around the globe for
his tool and die making capabilities in the alloy wheel industry and was also
the founder of Wheelcraft Alloy Wheels. Through the years he has found that
there is a huge demand by companies for the manufacture of medium sized
aluminium die casted components (30g to 5kg) as well as companies that
specialize in the tool and die making side for aluminium die casting. For most
people the cost for die casted components has just been too high, simply
because of the tooling aspect and so they stick to the old fashioned sand cast
method where the quality is not consistent but good enough for the job.
Recognising the need in the industry, he decided to start Solidworx
Engineering, a company that offers new and more affordable ways to die cast
components as well as offering a competitive alternative to sand casted
components with a higher quality and consistency.
