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 […]

About Die Casting Dies

The key to a successful die casting is a good tool design, so it is vital that both the die caster and the customer are well-versed in die casting capabilities and how they fit with project requirements. A die casting die is a custom-engineered, multi-part piece of equipment made from high quality, heat-treated steel.  The […]

HOUSEHOLD APPLIANCE DIE CASTING CORROSION RESISTANCE ALLOYS

Corrosion resistance refers to how well a metal withstands damage caused by oxidization or similar chemical reactions—usually over time. For many of our customers, this translates to how well and how long their metal component can withstand certain environments while still maintaining functional integrity. Whereas some of our customers are more concerned with the aesthetics […]

HOW TO USE THE NICKEL COATING FOR DIE CASTINGS

Nearly every die cast material needs a coating for corrosion purposes. Typically for components that have cosmetic finishes, the best under layer for finishing is nickel. It has great adhesion properties and acts a barrier for the skin. To give you an idea, we would cast the component and then put a layer of nickel […]

ALUMINUM DIE WITH THIN WALLS

When you think of aluminum die casting, do you think of big, bulky components with thick wall sections? Don’t worry, we did too! What if I told you that we can now cast aluminum parts that are almost as lightweight as their magnesium counterparts and offer more benefits like higher tensile strength and additional finishing options? In the […]
