Die casting – thin parts thick in business

With the die casting process, high precision components from low-melting alloys such as aluminium, zinc and magnesium can be manufactured with very high surface qualities. The process is economically worthwhile, especially for large series.

BENEFITS

  • Development, production, just in time delivery
  • Thin-walled components
  • Complex geometries
  • High surface finish
  • Most economical casting process for large series

In die casting, the liquid metal is shot through a piston into a divided permanent mold. The sometimes very high pressure loads also allow very thin-walled and complex components without loss of quality. Even with large parts, the mold is filled in fractions of a second, resulting in short cycle times.

If the series size is sufficient, die casting is a highly economical casting process.
