Die casting is a metal casting process that is characterized by forcing molten metal under high pressure into a mold cavity. The mold cavity is created using two hardened tool steel dies which have been machined into shape and work similarly to an injection mold during the process.
Benefits of Aluminum Die Casting
●Have a good stiffness and strength-to-weight ratio
●Based on rapid production
●Allows a high volume of die casting parts to be produced very quickly
●Is more cost-effective than alternative casting processes
◆Casting aluminum alloys
Metalli’s aluminum die casting capabilities

●Wall thickness minimal 3mm
●A variety of pipes, adapters and connectors
Industries that use aluminum die casting
Aluminum die casting parts are widely used in automotive, household, electronics, energy, construction and industrial.
Overview: What’s aluminum die casting?
The basics of aluminum die casting
Aluminum die casting is a manufacturing process for producing accurately dimensioned, sharply defined, smooth or textured-surface aluminum parts through the use of reusable molds, called dies. The aluminum die casting process involves the use of a furnace, aluminum alloy, die casting machine, and die. Dies that usually constructed with long-lasting, quality steel have at least two sections to permit removal of castings.
How does aluminum die casting Works?
The aluminum casting dies that are created using hardened tool steel must be made in at least two sections so that castings can be removed. The aluminum die casting process is capable of producing tens of thousands of aluminum castings in quick succession. The dies are firmly mounted in the die casting machine. The fixed half die is stationary. The other one, injector die half, is movable. Aluminum casting dies can be simple or complicated, with movable slides, cores or other parts, depending on the complexity of the casting. To begin the die casting process, the two die halves are clamped together by casting machine. High temperature liquid aluminum alloy is injected into the die cavity and rapidly solidified. Then the movable die half is opened and the aluminum casting is ejected.
