Die Casting Advantages, Uses, Tip.

Pressure die casting is great for manufacturing higher volumes of metal parts in aluminium, zinc or magnesium. HLH manufactures high quality die cast tools, offer precision die casting and post process machining and finishing options.

How It Works

Similar to injection molding but for metals a mold tool is first manufactured by HLH’s highly skilled tool makers and engineers. This is then installed on a die casting press and molten metal is injected under pressure into the tool cavity. The parts can then be finished in a range of ways including powder coating and anodizing.

Die Casting Tip

When it comes to any design, to achieve ultimate project success it is good to check your design against your chosen manufacturing process to see if any changes are needed. For die casting there are many things to consider to ensure you get a better quality of part.

Applying proper draft is crucial in die casting to ensure you get a consistent part without warpage or surface defects. The exact amount of draft you need to add depends on the part and tool design but get in touch early in the process and we can advise.
