Aluminum Die Casting with Cast Rite: Enhancing Precision and Efficiency

Die casting is a widely used fabrication process, known for producing metal parts with high dimensional accuracy and in high volumes. Certain complex shapes and features such as thin walls are possible now thanks to the die-casting process. While it works with a few different metals, Aluminum is by far the most popular type of die cast metal. 

Aluminum has a number of excellent mechanical properties that make this metal perfect for precise and efficient die casting. Aluminum die-casting products often have an exceptional surface finish that forgoes the need for extra processing or finishing. This characteristic, combined with aluminum’s low cost and longevity, is part of what makes aluminum die casting stand out in areas of precision and efficiency.  

However, at Cast-Rite, we take extra steps to enhance and ensure the precision of the aluminum products that we cast. Cast-Rite Corporation is certified to AS9100D by NSF-ISR for the manufacture of complex die castings; precision high-volume machining and assembly, and our dedicated quality personnel ensure that we maintain this certification each year. In addition, our quality management system is ISO 9001 certified, which indicates the journey we’ve taken to improve our manufacturing efficiency and quality control methods. 

Cast-Rite has also implemented a wide range of quality testing methods in our facility. We have several machines available for strength testing, metrology, and pressure testing, all to ensure that the aluminum die cast parts we make meet the precision requirements of our customers. There are no leaky castings at Cast-Rite–we are a forerunner in the field of leak testing and pressure-tight castings. We also take extra steps, such as performing radiography spectroscopy to enhance the quality and performance of our aluminum die cast products. 

One of the most important steps we take to enhance the precision and efficiency of our die casting process is through continuous training. We believe that the parts we make are only as good as the people who make them, which is why we strive to provide our team members with the resources they need to excel at their jobs.
