Our die casting process is suitable for medium and large series, since a die mold made of hot work steel is used, from which up to more than one million castings can be produced. With high mold filling speed and under high holding pressure, the liquid melt is pressed into the die casting mold and compacted afterwards. In technical circles, casting is referred to as a “shot”, which can contain several cavities (identical or different components), depending on the mold design.
Due to the permanent mold, it is possible to produce a large number of components with the same precision and 100% repeatability. A distinction is made between the cold-chamber process for aluminum, in which the casting set (casting chamber and plunger) is outside the metallic melt, and the hot-chamber process for zinc, in which the casting set is permanently in the melt. Some components, such as aftersales products and prototypes, can also be produced in small casting batches.
