Aluminum vs. Magnesium vs. Zinc: Alloy Properties in a Nutshell

Aluminum, magnesium, and zinc are the most common alloys used in the die casting process.  Aluminum and magnesium are considered to be relatively “lightweight” metals, and zinc alloys are a preferred metal to use in the miniature die casting processes and applications requiring thinner walls. Deciding which alloy is best suited for a specific application of a die […]

What Parts Should Choose Miniature Zinc Die Castings

Miniature zinc die casting is a precision die casting process which addresses the need for smaller component production.  The process is similar to conventional hot chamber die casting, but has the ability to produce castings with faster cycle times, tighter tolerances, and minimal value-added operations.  It can also be an economical replacement for other processes such as […]

Hot Chamber Die Casting and Cold Chamber Die Casting

High pressure die casting (HPDC) is a process where molten metal is injected under very high pressure into premium steel molds (dies) in order to manufacture high precision die cast products.  The die is designed to cast engineered shapes and complex features with great accuracy and consistent replication. There are two types of HPDC which Chicago White Metal […]
