Die casting is an efficient and economical manufacturing process. It is used to produce geometrically complex metal parts that are formed by reusable molds, called dies. These dies generally offer a long service life, and they are capable of producing visually appealing components.
The die casting process involves the use of a furnace, molten metal, a die casting machine and a die that has been custom-fabricated for the part to be cast. The metal is melted in the furnace and then the die casting machine injects that metal into the dies.
