Die Casting Advantages and Benefits
Die casting is fast and extremely cost-effective. Manufacturing experts claim that die casting is actually one of the fastest and most cost-effective methods known for producing a vast array of simple and complex components.
Die casting’s efficiency lies in the fact that it offers a broad range of shapes of parts. Enormous economies are provided because die cast parts are produced to near net shape, have long service life and can be designed or surface finished to visually blend with other components they may be assembled with. Designers know that they enjoy many advantages and benefits by specifying die cast parts.
Consider The Many Advantages And Benefits Of Using The Die Casting Process.
High-speed production - Die casting provides complex shapes within closer tolerances than many other mass production processes. Little or no machining is required and thousands of identical castings can be produced before additional tooling is required.
Dimensional accuracy and stability - Die cast parts are durable and dimensionally stable. They are heat resistant. And extremely close tolerances are a snap using the die casting process.
Strength and weight - Die cast parts are stronger than plastic injection moldings that have the same dimensions. Since die castings do not consist of separate parts welded or fastened together, die cast parts have the strength of alloy rather than the weaknesses that sometimes are inherent in the joining process.
Multiple finishing techniques - Die cast parts can be manufactured with smooth surfaces or textured. They are easily plated or paint finished with a minimum of surface preparation.
Simplified Assembly - Die castings can easily incorporate integrated fastening elements, such as bosses and studs. Holes can be cored and made to tap drill sizes, or external threads can be cast.
