Porosity in High Pressure Die Casting and How to Control It

Understanding porosity in high pressure die casting is crucial to producing quality products consistently. Porosity can cause various defects and weak areas in the finished product, leading to costly rework or scrap parts. Fortunately, it can control porosity by optimizing the design parameters and material processes used during manufacturing. In this blog post, we’ll look […]

How to Avoid Die Casting Defects

When it comes to die casting, precision and accuracy are key – any defects or mistakes in the process can result in costly rework down the line. In this blog, we’ll explore common die casting defects and how to ensure quality control in any die casting operation to prevent errors and ultimately create smoother part […]

Best Aluminum Alloys for Die Casting

Aluminum Alloy Types and Characteristics Aluminum die casting is a popular manufacturing process for quickly producing identical metal parts at high volumes. It is also a versatile and cost-effective method to produce parts with customizable finishes. In die casting, molten metal is ejected at high speeds and high pressures into a die. Aluminum is an […]

What Die Casting Process Should You Use for Your Designs and Products?

Understanding Die Casting Die casting is a manufacturing process in which metal alloys are liquified and injected into a reusable mold using extreme pressure. The finished piece is removed from the mold after cooling – sometimes requiring secondary processes. The process is fast, automatable, and able to produce high volumes of virtually identical components. This […]

Die Casting vs. Injection Molding

Which Process to Choose? When manufacturing parts for your business, the first aspect to consider is the best manufacturing process for your application. Die casting and injection molding are two of the most popular choices, but they have specific pros and cons that influence how well they suit your project. While the main difference between […]
