Advantages and Benefits of Zinc Die Casting
Why should you choose Zinc Die Casting for your next project?
There are several reasons why Zinc Die Casting is often chosen for die cast projects. That’s because it is one of the more versatile die cast metals available. With Zinc Die Casting you can achieve higher precision, casting to net-shape, with reduced tooling costs in comparison to other common die cast metals like aluminum or magnesium. Using Zinc Die Casting gives products a wide range of preferred physical and mechanical properties, along with superior finishing characteristics, while being the most economical alloy to cast.
Today, choosing Zinc Die Casting can reduce your overall project costs. Zinc has a low melting temperature which equates to less energy usage in processing. Zinc alloy properties also make them less aggressive on tooling which means dies last up to 10 times longer than aluminum, and up to 5 times longer than a die with magnesium. Longer lifespans of production tooling mean fewer repairs, less downtime, and greater part production. Greater efficiency with a lower capital investment.
Zinc Die Casting is ideal for projects within the building, industrial, electronic, recreational, and automotive industries. Zinc Die Casting alloys are tough, reliable engineering materials that are cost-effective and endure longer than other alloy options. The unique alloy combination provides rigidness, strength, and increased value to die cast products. Zinc alloy processing is very economical, and environmentally friendly providing users the ability to produce millions of parts with one set of tools.
