Metal Die Casting
Are you looking for professional metal die-casting? Five-Star Tooling is here for you.
Metal die casting is the technique of pouring molten metal into a high precision mold.
Metal die casting is to force molten metal under high pressure into a mold cavity.
It is made from non-ferrous metals specifically zinc, copper, aluminum, magnesium, lead, pewter, and tin-based alloys.
Metal die casting has excellent dimensional accuracy (dependent on casting material, but typically 0.1 mm for the first 2.5 cm (0.004 inches for the first inch) and 0.02 mm for each additional centimeter (0.002 inches for each additional inch).
It has smooth cast surfaces and thinner walls compared to sand and permanent mold casting.
Besides, metal dies casting can vary from less than a few seconds for small components to 2-3 minutes for a casting of over 30 lbs.
It is the fastest technique available for producing precise non-ferrous metal parts.
What’s more, metal die casting could reduce or eliminates secondary machining operations. It has rapid production rates and casting tensile strength as high as 415 megapascals.
It is often used to mass-produce complex three-dimensional structures. Metal die casting is usually done with a single manufacturing step without post-treatment to achieve complex shapes.
Metal die casting could cast low fluidity metals and could be applied in many applications like enclosures, housings, LED light fixtures, automotive and cases.
It can achieve significant cost savings through the reduction of manufacturing processes and lead time.
It can be produced in nearly every conceivable size and shape and provides the freedom to design intricate configurations that meet the functional requirement of the component.
