HOW TO DESIGN THE BALANCE BETWEEN LIGHTWEIGHTING AND PART PERFORMANCE

The rapid growth of a new generation of metal die case for small household appliance designers, engineers, and their suppliers. Strategy no longer comes from just removing and replacing a few steel side panels with aluminum, lightweighting is now a product concept to improve performance and handling. At Suzubin Household Appliance Enterprise, we understand that finding the balance between design, cost and part performance can be very challenging and we’re here to offer design solutions to fit your needs.

Sensitivity to Weight Through Design

Our thin-wall aluminum casting capabilities are often the solution to many design engineer’s challenges. We can cast aluminum parts that are almost as lightweight as their magnesium counterparts but offer better physical properties like higher tensile strength and additional finishing options. We find the perfect balance between proper overflow placement and runner system and gate design to offer our customers aluminum castings with walls as thin as 0.5mm.

Additionally, our engineers offer precise design for manufacturing techniques such as removing the core of a component to make the part lighter. With their die casting expertise, they can predict exactly where to remove unnecessary material without compromising the strength of the component. This technique is used time and time again with any of our die casting alloys.

Alloy Dependent

While we may excel at thin-wall aluminum, it is not the alloy for every project. Fortunately, we offer a variety of alloys that can best suit your project, rather than having your project meet the restrictions of the alloy—or the die casting manufacturer that offers it. If you’re looking for something that has excellent strength-to-weight ratios with outstanding EMI and RFI shielding, consider casting with magnesium. Perfect for electrical housings and connectors, magnesium has been a choice alloy for automotive designers looking to really cut down on weight. Additionally, the accuracy we can obtain casting zinc makes it a great option for wear resistance. Its structural integrity makes it a perfect fit for automotive safety and electrical components.

Engineering

Our best-in-class engineering team not only offers expertise in die casting but has decades of experience designing for the small household appliance industry and we continue to help our customers realize their design potential through rigorous design for manufacturing strategies. Whether it’s our top of the line software to ensure accuracy for your component’s design, tool, and manufacture, or our predictive engineering methodology to identify possible manufacturing problems, by the time your part goes to full production you can rest assured it is fully optimized for the die casting manufacturing process.

Stability

Our 58 presses range in size from 250 ton to 2000 ton producing alloys die casting components for low and high volume production programs. Suzubin Household Appliance Enterprise provides high pressure die casting, and a range of other die casting processes for the small household appliance. Process monitoring, press side imaging, robotics, MAGMAsoft® flow simulation, perpetual tooling and tool maintenance programs are utilized to extend tool life, reduce cycle times, reduce costs and provide high quality die castings. From part conception and prototyping through assembled finished production.

Your Household Appliance Die Cast Manufacturer

Through years of building relationships with our customers, we’ve found that by working together on designs from the very beginning we are able to not only offer the best solutions to new-age challenges but also price more effectively. By recommending the best casting solutions up-front with a variety of alloy options and design techniques, we are able to create a better performing part that will be lighter and more reliable. Contact our team today to get your business moving forward.
