Casting

With machine cycles capable of exceeding 30 per minute, Multi-slide die casting is a fast, cost effective manufacturing process which produces net shaped, tight tolerance metal components. The die casting process is accomplished by injecting molten metal (zinc) into a hardened steel die, also referred to as a mold or tool, under high pressure. The metal typically solidifies in milliseconds and is then ejected automatically from the die. A typical die will normally produce millions of components before requiring replacement.

  • Less than 0.5 pounds
  • Net shape
  • Normally, no secondary machining is required

  • Internal and external threads
  • Tight tolerance; Diameters within +/-.0005/ .001, dimensional +/- .002 or less depending on the feature.
  • Part to part consistency.  Normally, inconsistencies cannot be measured.
