Die Cast Metals

Die casting is used to mass produce aluminum, zinc, and magnesium components that are used for a wide variety of applications. Alloy selection depends on a component’s requirements for strength, weight, and corrosion resistance. Ease of casting, machining, and coating are also important considerations.

Watch this video of a past webinar to learn about the compositions of common aluminum, magnesium, and zinc die casting alloys and the effects of the composition differences on strength, hardness, ease of casting, ease of machining, and corrosion resistance. Also, the die casting processes, casting design, casting defects, high-integrity casting processes  are discussed.
