Die cast parts
Die cast parts are created through a metal casting process in which molten metal is forced under high pressure into a mould hollow. The mould hollow is created using two hardened tool steel dies which have been machined into shape and work in the same way as an injection mould during the process. Most die castings are made from non-ferrous metals, especially zinc, copper, aluminium, magnesium, lead, pewter and tin-based alloys. Depending on the type of metal being cast, a hot or cold chamber machine is used.
