Benefits of Die Casting


Die casting is an efficient, economical process that offers a broader range of shapes and components than any other manufacturing technique.

Complex Shapes

Die casting provides complex shapes within closer tolerances than many other mass production processes. Little or no machining is required and thousands can be produced before additional tooling is required.

Accuracy & Stability

Die casting produces parts that are durable and dimensionally stable while maintaining close tolerances. They are also heat resistant.

Strength & Weight

Die cast parts are stronger than plastic injection moldings having the same dimensions. Thin wall die castings are stronger and lighter than those possible with other casting methods.

Finishing Options

Die cast parts can be produced with smooth or textured surfaces, and they are easily plated or finished with a minimum of surface preparation.

Simplified Assembly

Die castings can be designed to provide integral fastening elements, such as bosses and studs. Holes can be cored and made to tap drill sizes…or external threads can be cast.

 

Die Casting vs. Other Processes


  • Connector.

    Die casting vs. Plastic injection molding

    Die casting produces stronger parts with closer tolerances that have greater stability and durability. Die cast parts have greater resistance to temperature extremes and superior electrical properties.

  • Connector.

    Die casting vs. Sand & permanent castings

    Die casting produces parts with thinner walls, closer dimensional limits, and smoother surfaces. Production is faster and labor costs per die casting are lower. Finishing costs are also less.

  • Connector.

    Die casting vs. Forgings

    Die casting produces more complex shapes with closer tolerances, thinner walls, and lower finishing costs.

  • Connector.

    Die casting vs. Stampings

    Die casting produces complex shapes with variations possible in section thickness. One die casting may replace several stampings, resulting in reduced assembly time.

  • Connector.

    Die casting vs. Screw machine products

    Die casting produces shapes that are difficult or impossible to produce from bar or tubular stock, while maintaining exacting tolerances. Die casting requires fewer operations and reduces scrap.

    Die casting vs. Machining Parts from Billets/Bar Stock

    Producing parts from billets is a time consuming process that generates significant scrap…it also cuts the grain of the metal which can diminish the ultimate working strength of the machined part. In comparison, many die cast parts can be produced in the same time it takes to machine parts from a billet…and considerably less scrap and waste is produced. Die castings can also be produced with complex shapes not possible from machining. Most importantly, the die casting process inherently compresses metal grain to create high strength, yet lightweight finished parts.

However you look at it, die castings are the smart money choice to improve the performance of your component or finished part.
