Die casting is a versatile process for producing engineered metal parts by forcing molten metal under high pressure into reusable steel molds. These molds can be designed to produce complex shapes with a high degree of accuracy and repeatability. By die casting, parts will have smooth or textured surfaces, and are suitable for a wide variety of attractive and serviceable finishes.
Die castings are among the highest volume, mass-produced items manufactured by the metalworking industry, and they can be found in thousands of consumers, commercial and industrial products. Die castings are also important components of products ranging from automobiles to toys. A part can be as simple as a sink faucet or as complex as a connector housing.
