Die Casting

Wed, 10 Sep 2008

Die casting is a process that produces metal parts by forcing molten metal into reusable steel molds under high pressure. These molds also known as dies are specially designed to produce different shapes of varying complexity with a high level of accuracy and repeatability.

Die casting metal helps to produce sharply defined shapes with textured or smooth surfaces. This unique process is widely used in the metalworking industry to manufacture mass produced commercial, consumer, and industrial products. You can manufacture parts ranging from toys to automobile parts to faucets.

Die Casting Process

In the die casting process, the molten metal is injected under high pressure into the die or the steel mold.  Die casting machines are rated in terms of tonnage which is the amount of pressure that can be exerted on the material. The machines typically range from 40 tons to 4000 tons.

Advantages of Die-casting
  • Die-casting is an economical and efficient process that provides a wide range of shapes.
  • Die-casting is a fast process.
  • The parts produced are dimensionally uniform.
