How We Upgrade Our Machines

At Dynacast all of our machines need to meet certain standards. As a machine ages, technologies can become outdated and parts can wear. This blog post will give you an inside look at how we keep our machines up and running, and how we upgrade them to ensure the most up-to-date technology is available for our customers’ manufacturing needs.

Lean Manufacturing in Action

Lean manufacturing has continued to build in popularity over the past several years – and with good reason.  Facilities that have successfully implemented a lean manufacturing culture have seen significant gains in all aspects of their business.

How Culture Drives Growth and Profit

My previous blog post focused on three key areas that are critical to the success and growth of manufacturing: our people, our customers, and our plants. For this post, I want to expand on one of those key areas, our people. Dynacast’s employees are the reason we are as profitable and successful as we are. Specifically, the culture we have been able to cultivate over the years has been a determining factor in our success. Our culture is rooted in trust, but also in the ability to be agile and adapt to changes. With 5,500 employees spread across 16 countries, it is hard to ensure that the culture is integrated fully, but it’s something that Dynacast works hard to achieve. How do we do it? It starts before someone is even considered for an open position.

The Transformation of the Wearable Device Industry

As the Market Research Analyst for Dynacast, it’s my responsibility to gain an understanding of the many industries that we are involved in as well as the ones we could gain entry into. I scan a variety of news sources daily and have noticed that the wearable device industry has been getting a significant amount of press as manufacturers churn out new devices at a rapid pace. This is an industry that Dynacast has been involved in for years; we have worked with some of the biggest manufacturers around the globe and our parts will be in many of the 150 million devices that are projected to be purchased this year.

Surface Finishing Options Part One – Chromate and Chrome

Is your part in need of a surface coating but you aren’t sure what would work best? My next four blog posts will feature some of the many different choices that Dynacast has to offer. We offer about thirty different coatings, from chrome to electroless nickel and many more. This post will focus on the chrome and chromate surface finishes. If you see a coating that you’d like but it isn’t listed on our site or mentioned in one of my blogs, please reach out to us! We constantly add new surface coating options based on customers needs.

Surface Coating Options Part Two – Nickel

This blog post will focus on the various types of nickel plating that are available as surface finishes. If you are interested in other elements besides chrome and nickel, my third post will go through the other elements that we currently coat with, such as gold, silver, and tin. Nickel is considered a transition metal and it is hard and ductile with good corrosion resistance. It can be applied using either a rack-process or barrel-process depending on part size and geometry. These make it a great option for coating diecast parts.

Surface Coating Options Part Three – The Elements

In the third piece of my surface coating blog series, I’d like to discuss the elements with you. As mentioned previously, we offer about thirty different surface coatings, and we are constantly adding more. The last two blogs that I posted were related to chrome and nickel surface coatings. While chrome and nickel are both elements, I felt that it was important to distinguish them from the rest of the elements because they offer so many different options. Below are the rest of the elements that are available for surface coating.

The Benefits of Our A3 Machines

As I mentioned in my previous blog on A2 machines, one of Dynacast’s distinguishing factors are our unique machine capabilities. We have proprietary machines that use multi-slide technology and create fast cycle times and precision components. Below I’ve given some additional details on another type of machine we use, the A3.
