Pressure die casting is a quick, reliable and cost-effective manufacturing process for production of high volume, metal components that are net-shaped have tight tolerances.
Advantages of Pressure Die Casting :
Lower costs compared to other processes.
Economical – typically production of any number of components from thousands to millions before requiring replacement is possible.
Castings with close dimensional control and good surface finish
Castings with thin walls, and therefore are lighter in weight
An increasing number of car parts such as engine blocks or structural parts are being manufactured from aluminum using high-pressure die casting. A growing world population, coupled with an increase in living standards especially in the emerging markets, are boosting automobile sales. In 2014, over 90 million cars were manufactured globally.
Automobile manufacturers are looking for ways to make their products more efficient and reduce fuel consumption as well as carbon emissions. Lightweight construction using efficient and cost-optimized aluminum die casting plays a key role in achieving this goal. And the demand for aluminum parts will without doubt continue to grow over the next years: “In addition to manufacturing engine blocks and gearboxes, die casting is increasingly being used to produce structural components such as door frames or shock towers. And lightweight aluminum construction is also expected to make its way down from full-size cars into mid-size and compact cars.
