What is diecasting?
Die casting is an industrial method which involves the moulding of metal parts to achieve a specific shape, size and texture for use in various applications. The desired metal is formed by placing molten metal under high pressure to fit in recyclable metal dies, to produce specific non-ferrous metals. These bespoke parts can be constructed for an unlimited amount of projects, dependent on your business.

What are the advantages of die casting?
There are several benefits associated with the die casting process, including:
Although costs will vary dependant on your preferences, the die casting process is extremely cost-efficient. It involves the mass-production of metal parts, which will allow you to save a significant amount of costs on a long-term basis.
You may not realise it, but die casting is actually environmentally-friendly – especially aluminium die casting – as this is a recyclable metal that can be used later for additional projects. The metal dies used in the die casting method can also be recycled, which can show your customers that you are becoming more eco-conscious.
The process of die casting helps to create robust and sustainable metal parts that will provide you with top-quality components for your products. This will enable them to withstand adverse temperatures and high- or low-pressure environments – protecting them from any corrosion or damage.
