Shrink your cycle time on complex castings without scrap
Die cast tooling produces castings that lower cost with fast cycle times under high pressure. Decades of experience in the high-volume automotive industry means we’ve designed die cast tooling for many different applications.
You need die cast tooling when you need speed and repeatability. And our die cast tooling utilizes slides, water cooling systems, rudders, and more to shrink cycle times and deliver more consistent casts.
Smart engineering minimizes your margin for error
Dimensional accuracy eliminates flashes
It takes very little space for pressurized metal to leak and cause your casting to flash. Dealing with flash drives labor and material costs up, but well-designed tight tolerances reduce scrap and rework, especially for intricate parts.
We design and bench our tooling for the highest physically achievable accuracy, tight tolerances, and a smooth surface finish to your part. Because the more process control you achieve, the more cost-effective your tooling will be.
