Die Casting



Image When your design application requires a component that is heavier and stronger than a plastic part, die casting could provide the solution. Die casting produces complex shapes with variations possible in section and wall thickness. Die cast parts can be produced with smooth or textured surfaces, and they are easily plated or painted.

Materials

Aluminum: This alloy is 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.

|

Copper: This alloy possesses high hardness, high corrosion resistance and the highest mechanical properties of alloys cast. It offers excellent wear resistance and dimensional stability, with strength approaching that of steel parts.

|Lead and Tin: These alloys offer high density and are capable of producing parts with extremely close dimensions. They are also used for special forms of corrosion resistance.|Zinc: The easiest alloy to cast, it offers high ductility, high impact strength and is easily plated. Zinc is economical for small parts, has a low melting point and promotes long die life.|Magnesium: The easiest alloy to machine, magnesium has an excellent strength-to-weight ratio and is the lightest alloy commonly die cast.
