Aluminium castings are lightweight and able to withstand the highest operating temperatures of all die cast alloys.

Aluminium alloy characteristics:

  • High operating temperatures
  • Outstanding corrosion resistance
  • Lightweight
  • Very good strength and hardness
  • Good stiffness and strength-to-weight ratio
  • Excellent EMI and RFI shielding properties
  • Excellent thermal conductivity
  • High electrical conductivity
  • Good finishing characteristics
  • Full recyclability

Aluminium’s strength, corrosion resistance, and heat dissipating properties offer mechanical designers significant advantages. And our proprietary Thin Wall Aluminium Technology has made Aluminium die casting an option for even more applications.

Applications for Aluminium: 

  • Aluminium castings improve automotive fuel efficiency by contributing to weight saving requirements
  • Aluminium is used in a broad range of networking and infrastructure equipment in the telecom and computing industries because RF filter boxes and housings require heat dissipation
  • In handheld devices, Aluminium castings provide EMI/RFI shielding, rigidity, and durability with minimal weight
  • Because of Aluminium’s excellent electrical performance and shielding properties, even in high-temperature environments, die cast Aluminium is ideal for electronic connectors and housings
