Die Casting Part Making

Die casting is is one of the most economical metal casting process that is characterized by forcing molten metal under high pressure into a mould cavity. Normally zinc, copper, aluminium, magnesium alloys is used for mass production quickly by using just one mold. Depending on the type of metal being cast, a hot- or cold-chamber machine is used. Die castings are characterized by a very good surface finish (by casting standards) and dimensional consistency.

Die Casting Mold

Due to the high melting point of metal, the design and manufacturing standards of die-casting molds are also very high. The mould cavity is created using two hardened tool steel dies which have been machined into shape and work similarly to an injection mould during the process. During the casting process a high pressure is applied to the mold halves, which is why the mold is equipped with latches. In addition, certain parts of the mold are cooled and/ or heated so that the casting solidifies as desired. A further advantage of the reusable casting molds is that the melt cools down quickly.

Post-Processing

Most die-cast products need to be processed in post-processing before they can be used. Common post-processing techniques include: grinding, CNC machining, drilling and tapping, powder coating, etc. Our company is equipped with a post-processing workshop, which can directly produce die-casting products into semi-finished products and finished products to meet customer needs.

Fields of Application
Most commonly, die cast components are manufactured for the automotive industry, such as wheels, blocks, cylinder heads, valve blocks and manifolds. The use of aluminum parts leads to a reduction in the weight of the vehicles and thus to a reduction in fuel consumption. In addition, there are other industries in which die cast parts are used:
• Aerospace
• Domestic Appliances
• Furniture
• Power Tools
• Electronics
• Machinery
• Lighting Technology
