Aluminum Die Casting
Die casting is our specialty, and something as common as aluminum die casting is no problem for us. No matter how complex the part, we are well-prepared for whatever project you’ve got.
Aluminum is the most common alloy used for the die-casting process today. It has a variety of benefits that make aluminum perfect for a wide range of products, and our team has plenty of experience available at your disposal.
The Benefits of Aluminum Die-Cast Parts
One of the main benefits of aluminum die-cast parts is that they are very lightweight while still maintaining the ability to withstand the highest operating temperatures of all die-casting alloys. The lightness of aluminum die-cast parts makes them an ideal choice for handheld applications, such as power tools and other portable devices. Aluminum parts are also used extensively in automotive and aerospace applications for weight reduction and fuel efficiency.
Another beneficial property of aluminum is its high dimensional stability for complex shapes and thin-wall applications. This means that it’ll keep its shape, no matter how intricate or thin the part might be.
Aluminum die-casting parts are commonly chosen for their corrosion resistance and good mechanical properties. They also have high thermal and electrical conductivity as well. All of these properties make aluminum a primary choice for a wide range of applications, from consumer electronic housing to marine applications.
Aluminum also has another natural property, called EMI shielding. This makes aluminum die-cast parts an excellent choice for enclosures for networking and telecommunication applications. Not only does it provide shielding properties, it also gives enclosures effective heat dissipation for the electronic components housed inside.
And finally, aluminum die-cast parts are also easy to machine for high-precision requirements and can be chromated, anodized, painted, or powder coated without difficulty.
