Die casting is a fairly specialised process which has developed more predominantly within the 20th century. Pressure die casting provides the fastest and most competitive method from molten metal to completed component compared to other forms of die castings. By injecting molten metal into a hardened steel mould we can manufacture a high quality casting with an excellent surface finish, ensuring a consistency beyond any other casting process.


The casting process is quick and very repeatable, and in simple terms is performed by, the die casting mould being sprayed with lubricant and closed. The lubricant both helps control the temperature of the die and it also assists in the removal of the casting. Molten metal is then shot into the die under high pressure; once the die is filled the pressure is maintained until the casting has solidified. The die is then opened and the casting are ejected from the die.


In many cases alloy castings can be replaced and manufactured using lighter weight specialist plastics giving the same performance. Our specialist technical team are happy to discuss the most suitable options for your project.
