Die cast Design

Our engineers take precision to a whole new level—focusing on computer aided engineering (CAE) to produce rapid prototypes and tooling.

We are leaders in the integration and application of CAE including:

  • Pro/ENGINEER and Pro/MANUFACTURE to ensure accuracy for your component’s design, tool design, and manufacture
  • We use MAGMA casting process simulation to predict how the die will fill, solidify, and cool, reducing the risk of defective parts
  • We understand that the future of designing is online with PTC Windchill® and are using our strong Pro/ENGINEER links to stay at the forefront of these developments
  • Our highly experienced engineers use a Design for Die Casting (DFDC) methodology that optimizes casting manufacturability while preserving functionality
  • The gains from DFDC vary with each job depending on whether the initial design is casting-friendly or not, but our engineers routinely manage to cut total costs by 30% or more

  • Manufacturability

    Design for Manufacturing (DFM) is one of the best practices our engineers follow to ensure your part does not require expensive secondary operations which can often represent as much as 80% of the component cost. Our engineers use a DFM methodology that optimizes casting manufacturability while preserving functionality. Here’s what this entails:

  • Part Improvement

    From concept, making sure the correct improvements are in place to make a quality component is essential. By using machining, surface coating, reducing heavy masses, and more, the component can be as complete as possible on the first cast.

  • Assembly Methods

    Our engineers can help you decide on the best fasteners to join your components. There are a wide range of options to choose from. 

  • Die Casting Tolerances

    We look at tolerances differently. Our standards both meet and exceed industry standards and are used as a guideline for designers worldwide. We believe that tolerances should be as tight as necessary, not as tight as possible.
