Process: Die Casting, Pressure

Overview

Used to create a wide variety of parts out of predominantly non-ferrous metals, die casting is the process of forcing molten metal into a mould cavity at high pressure. It is used for a wide variety of applications, with the automotive and consumer products sectors particularly favouring die casting as a manufacturing option. Owing to the applicable tooling costs pressure die casting is suited to high volume production. It is capable of producing consistent components with a higher quality surface finish than most other methods of casting.
