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.
- 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.
