Value for money

Value for Volume

Once the mould is amortised, diecasting is a cheapest method to produce metal parts.

Rapid Manufacture

Repeatability

Diecasting tools can be used over a long period of time and produce parts with stable quality.

Wide range of finishes

Finishing

Diecast parts can be offered with a wide range of surface treatments.

Process


Diecasting, is a process used to produce high volumes of relatively small metal items. The process uses compressed metal powder that is injection moulded and then ‘sintered’ to produce parts of high accuracy and which often need no post processing.

Materials and Capability


Materials include Stainless Steel, and carbon Steel alloys. Parts can then be post machined and heat treated if required. Generally our process can handle complex small parts up to 100mm in length, and 50g max weight. Prototype or Production volumes up to 300,000 parts. Our tooling is built and moulded in the Far East, and components shipped all over the world. Excellent dimensional accuracy combined with exceptional surface finish, means it becomes a first choice technology for some applications.

Cost


Because these relatively small metal parts are ‘off tool’, with a low post process labour content, the process is extremely competitive. Using the process often allows an assembly of metal parts to be combined into less parts, cutting the cost of producing different parts, assembling and machining them.
