Aluminum High-pressure Die Casting

High-pressure die casting is extremely suitable for casting with high dimensional accuracy and for batch sizes with more than 2,500 pieces. In high-pressure die casting, aluminum is injected into a steel die under high pressure.

Efficiently casting large numbers

Aluminum is injected into the die under high pressure using fully automatic high-pressure machines, also known as high-pressure casting machines. These machines have a closure pressure of 400 to 1,300 kN. In many cases, the great dimensional accuracy of this die casting process eliminates the need to finish the product, thus significantly reducing finishing costs. In addition, this casting technique is highly suitable for thin-walled casting. Perfect for saving weight. Furthermore, both the automated process and the continuous quality control help to reduce deviations in the product.

Reasons to choose high-pressure casting
  • Suitable for large batches
  • Low costs per casting
  • Very high dimensional accuracy
