Die casting is the process of producing large quantity of complex, intricate metal parts through the use of a die, a reusable mould created to the specific design of your component. In essence, this process works by pouring or injecting molten metal under high pressure into a mould cavity.
After creating a specific die for the production of your part, a metal with a low melting point, like aluminium, is forced into the die and cast to create even the most complicated design, with the finished product being a part manufactured to the highest of standards.
Advantages of die casting:
High-speed production – thousands of identical castings can be manufactured with little to no machining.
Dimensional accuracy and stability – with die casting, you can be confident that your parts are durable and dimensionally stable while maintaining close tolerances.
Thin walls – die casting allows for the production of casts with thinner walls when compared to other methods.
Finishing options – whether you require a smooth or textured finish, die casting can produce parts that match your specifications.
Lightweight parts – die casting is capable of producing parts for industries where weight is a concern, such as the aerospace and automotive sectors.
Improved performance – die casting parts are proven to improve general performance such as Mpg and vehicle handling.
