Technical Information about Die Casting
Die Casting, A Description of theDie Casting Process-
Die casting is amanufacturing process in which molten metal is injected, under considerable pressure,into a hardened steel die or also called die casting mold. Dies are often water-cooled.The die is then opened, and the die casting parts are ejected (many times thousands of die casting parts each day, sometimes only a few hundred die casting parts). Once thedie casting tooling is paid for, die casting parts are a very inexpensive aluminum partmanufacturing process.
