Zinc Die Casting
Similar to precision plastics injection molding, a die casting part is made by melting metal ingots such as aluminum or zinc into empty cavity of a set die casting mold. After optimized cooling phase to solidify the die casting parts, ejected from the mold and the molding cycle is repeated. Molding duration ranged from few seconds to several minutes can be depend on raw metal ingots material, die casting parts size or weight, mold design.
It is applied to castings that do not require high mechanical strength, such as toys, lamps, decorations, and some electrical components. Die casting is a metal casting process characterized by the use of a mold cavity to apply high pressure to the molten metal. Molds are usually machined from higher strength alloys, some of which are similar to injection molding.
