Die Cast Metals

We manufacture miniature to large precision components in a broad range of zinc, aluminum, and magnesium alloys, using hot chamber and cold chamber die cast technologies, along with our proprietary multi-slide and standard tooling systems.

Each of the alloys have unique physical characteristics to match your specific application. Our experts will help you pick the ideal material to manufacture your precision component.

You can begin your research by comparing the mechanical properties, physical properties, and composition of different die cast alloys using the tables below: 

  • Consider mechanical properties, including tensile strength, yield strength, impact strength, hardness, and elongation
  • Picking the right metal also means understanding its physical properties, like its conductivity or behavior under extreme stress or heat
  • It’s also important to examine the composition of different alloys, taking into account common uses for the primary element of each
  • After narrowing down your list of die cast alloys or needed properties, our materials comparison tool is perfect for side-by-side comparisons

  • Magnesium Casting Metals

    Strong, rigid, fully recyclable yet incredibly light with superior EMI/RFI shielding properties. Magnesium is the ideal die cast material for applications where weight saving is a priority.
