DIE CASTING MANUFACTURING
DIE CASTING MOLD MAKER IN CHINA
LCTECH provides you with complete die casting processing services, including mold manufacturing, die casting molding and surface treatment services.
What is die casting?
Die-casting is suitable for the production of large volume of metal products. The surface finish of the products is good with high dimensional stability. The material for die casting can be selected from aluminum alloy, zinc alloy or magnesium alloy.
LCTECH provides various Surface-treatment processes suitable for different products, including sand blasting, polishing, painting, powder coating, electrophoresis, pad printing, screen printing, anodizing, and mechanical processing. Our team will propose the most reasonable Suggest to you.
Die Casting Advantage
•Economical manufacturing process;
•High speed production process;
•High precision, accuracy and dimensional stability;
•Different and Simple finishing techniques;
•Simple assembly process;
•Suitable for medium and large size products with high cost;
Zinc alloys are castable to closer tolerances than any other metal or molded plastic. Zinc die casting can produce repeatability of less than ± 0.001” for small components, often rivaling machining tolerances. Few other processes can easily achieve the same net shape performance presenting the opportunity to reduce or eliminate machining. “Net Shape” or “Zero Machining” manufacturing is a major advantage of zinc casting.
While it is not considered as castable as zinc due to a higher melting temperature, aluminum is the most commonly used alloy in the die casting industry, and it remains one of the most economical materials used in high-volume casting projects. Die cast aluminum parts can be found in everything from the components used to run your car to the electronics and power tools millions of Americans utilize every day.
One of LCTECH’s core competencies in aluminum die casting is its robust die design standards that build powerful tools. Our tool shop have stated that is more demanding in its aluminum die casting tooling design and requirements than other die casters in the industry and that the company’s standards exceed other die casters requirements. That is because LCTECH’s standards and proficient processes produce dynamic die designs that result in making tooling that lasts longer with a higher die life.
Die CASTING FAQ:
It is the Process of injecting molten metal into custom made steel dies, it can be simple or complex, having moveable slides, cores, or other sections depending on the complexity of the casting.
Aluminum alloy die-casting: suitable for products with high strength, complex structure and light weight
Zinc alloy die casting: mostly used for parts with high ductility and need electroplating.
Magnesium alloy die casting: used for lightweight parts with high strength-to-weight ratio.
Our mold tools are usually made from 1.2083 tool steel with a Rockwell hardness of 52-58,Specialty steels are available upon request.
•Networking and Telecommunication
•Even wall thickness.
•Rounding of all edges and corners.
•Smooth blending and continuity of all the features.
We will provide additional design modification suggestions to make sure your parts are casted successfully.
You can start by providing the part’s 2D and 3D drawings to us. We can provide Design For Manufacture (DFM) service for you.
The color can be specify by using RAL or Pantone color codes. If you don’t have the color code, you can send us a color chip or a color sample for us to come up with a matching color chip
Please provide us with the part’s 3D CAD drawings (such as IGES, STEP, or X_T). We can also quote based on 2D drawings (in DWG, DXF, or even PDF format [but with weight information]). We can also import CAD files directly from popular CAD software, such as Pro/ENGINEER, UGS, Catia, and Solid Edge. In addition, we need the production information listed in our request for quote form. Quoting turnaround is typically within a week, and can be even sooner if there is special timing constraint
