High Pressure Die CastingTransforming Liquid Metal into Usable Parts
Die casting is the process of melting metal material and putting it into a mold or steel die to shape the metal as it re-hardens. The most typical types of die-casting parts–and the types that we make–are aluminum and zinc.
Benefits of Die Casting
Die-cast parts can offer much higher dimensional precision than other types of manufacturing processes. Even thin, complex shapes are easily mass-produced via die casting. Parts can also be efficiently made with variable wall thicknesses and tighter tolerances.
Die-cast parts tend to have a much longer lifespan–especially those made of zinc–and require less steps to manufacture. This manufacturing process reduces costs, time, and material waste. Multiple parts can be combined into one single part via die casting, eliminating further assembly down the line and further lowering manufacturing costs.
When to choose die casting to manufacture your product
Die casting is best suited for mass production of durable, consistent parts, as it’s much faster than other manufacturing processes, and more easily repeatable. If your parts require a lot of surface details, then die casting is the right manufacturing process for your product.
And if your part requires more complex machining, we also offer CNC Machining and surface finishes to complete our die-cast parts.
We incorporate real-time process monitoring software throughout our facility to monitor our machining processes and ensure that every part is made correctly. By incorporating real-time shot monitoring systems, we can track the consistency of the parts produced in our die-casting facility. This allows us to make sure that our parts consistently are pressure-tight and meet tolerance standards.
Leader of High Precision Die-Casting Parts
Die Casting is what makes Cast-Rite Corporation special. This is one of the processes that differentiates us from our competition. Our knowledge of die casting has allowed us to make castings that are pressure-tight without the need of impregnation. In our die-casting facilities, we work mainly with aluminum die casting and zinc alloy die casting.
