High Precision Metal Die Casting Product Filter Parts And Hardware Parts
Die casting is a versatile, efficient and economical process for producing engineered metal
Die casting offers a broader range of shapes and components than any other manufacturing
The die casting process requires a steel mold. These reusable steel molds, called dies, can be
designed to produce complex shapes with a high degree of accuracy and repeatability.
The dies are mounted into a machine that injects molten metal into the dies under high pressure.
Once the molten metal has solidified, the die is opened and the casting is ejected from the die.
The die is then closed and the process starts over.
|Advantages of Die Casting
The die casting process provides complex shapes within closer tolerances than many other
mass production processes. Little or no machining is required and thousands of identical
castings can be produced in a very short time.
Die castings have a long service life because they are durable, dimensionally stable, and heat
Die cast parts are stronger than plastic injection molded parts having the same dimensions.
Die castings can be produced with thinner wall sections that are not possible with other casting
Die castings can be smooth or textured and they are easily plated or painted with a minimum
of surface preparation.
Die castings offer simplified assembly by providing integral fastening elements such as bosses
and studs. Holes can be cored and made to tap drill sizes or external threads can be
Aluminum Die Castings
Aluminum die casting alloys are lightweight while possessing high dimensional stability for
complex shapes and thin walls. Aluminum has good corrosion resistance and mechanical
properties, high thermal and electrical conductivity, as well as strength at high temperatures.
Because of it’s superior mechanical properties, aluminum die castings are among the highest
volume, mass produced items manufactured by the metalworking industry today.
Aluminum die castings are everywhere. They can be found in thousands of consumer,
commercial and industrial products.
Aluminum die castings are important components of products like automobiles, computers,
washers, dryers, refrigerators, furnaces and even toys. Some parts can be as simple as a
faucet handle or as complex as a transmission housing.
Zinc Die Castings
Zinc die casting alloys offer a broad range of excellent physical and mechanical properties.
Thinner sections and walls can be die cast in zinc alloy than in any of the commonly used
die casting alloys.
Zinc alloy generally allows for greater variation in section design and can achieve tighter
Zinc is the easiest alloy to cast, it offers high ductility, high impact strength and is easily
Zinc is economical for small parts, has a low melting point and promotes long die life.
Zinc die castings are versatile and can be found in many of the things that we use everyday.
Zinc die castings are commonly used for electric motors, computers, hand tools, electrical
connectors and faucets.
