Zinc and aluminium zinc parts can be left as-cast and retain reasonable corrosion resistance. Aluminium parts must be coated to achieve corrosion resistance. Cast parts are typically broken away from the casting sprue, leaving rough marks at the gate locations.
Final result: Most castings will also have visible marks left by the ejector pins.
After a consultation we discuss terms and start the process.
We perform design-for-manufacturability analysis and prepare your quote.
After mold design approval, we start manufacturing the tool.
We produce samples, perform QA, and send the samples to you.
After approval of the samples, the large batch production is kicked-off.
Your parts are delivered to you.
Die casting stands as a premier manufacturing method for producing intricate metal components in high volumes, especially in the furniture industry. At ScanCastor, we utilize steel molds akin to those in injection molding, but instead of plastics, we work with metals like zinc and aluminium, known for their low melting points. This process is favored for its precision, consistency, and adaptability, making it ideal for crafting detailed furniture parts.
In die casting, molten metal is driven into a steel mold or die under high pneumatic or hydraulic pressure. These molds are designed to shape metal into complex geometries, perfect for the nuanced designs often seen in furniture components. Among all casting processes, die casting is responsible for crafting the majority of metal parts.
While some companies might focus on specific metals, aluminium dominates the die casting scene, accounting for roughly 80% of all die cast parts, a testament to its versatility and durability in furniture applications.
