About the process

Overview

Die casting describes the process of forcing molten metals under high pressure into machined mold cavities to produce metal parts. The die casting method is especially suited for applications where large quantities of small-to medium-sized parts are needed with good detail, fine surface quality and dimensional consistency. Most die castings are made from non-ferrous metals, specifically zinc and aluminum. The level of versatility offered by die casting has placed it among the highest volume products made in the metalworking industry.
