Die Cast Tooling Production

In over 80 years of business, we have built over 300,000 unique dies. All of our dies and die cast equipment are standardized around the world and we globally coordinate our tooling resources. This means that wherever your manufacturing location is situated, we support you from concept, rapid prototyping, tooling, and pre-production testing stages to full-scale manufacturing. We offer two types of tooling processes: multi-slide and conventional.

Multi-Slide Die Cast Tooling

Our proprietary multi-slide technology was originally invented in 1936. Since then, we have made continuous improvements to our tools and machines to offer the most advanced die casting process. Multi-slide tooling is designed to use four (or more) perpendicular slides in the tool allowing us to create more complex and accurate castings. Multi-slide die casting offers a number of unique advantages, including:

  • Net shape first time, eliminating secondary operations like assembly and machining
  • Complex geometry and tight tolerances at high speed for world-class productivity and lower total costs
  • Minimum part-to-part variation compared to standard multi-cavity dies
  • More compact tools that are less prone to parting-line variation and its negative effect on the finished part’s dimensional tolerances

Conventional Die Cast Tooling

Conventional die cast tooling comes in single cavities (one part per cycle) or multiple cavities (more than one part per cycle). Our conventional tooling process is designed with only two slides rather than four and it provides customers with efficiency in production and lower costs. When you choose Dynacast as your die casting company you receive:

  • Quality built dies which efficiently cope with high volume production
  • Attention to the design of the dies, putting in as many of the part’s features as needed to avoid secondary operations. Our goal is always net shape first time
  • Careful planning to eliminate machining and reduce costs
  • Predictive wear analysis to promote the longevity of our dies, our tool designers predict what part of the die may wear out and insert this as a separate piece of steel
  • Carefully planned water and cooling lines ensure efficient production 


Dynacast Tool Design & Production

All of our tools start with design for manufacturing, where we talk with our customers to make sure any shortfalls for the part can be vetted and corrected before the tool is built. Modifying die features on the front end will help to improve the final part but also increase the overall quality of the tool. During this design phase, we can also predict where the tool will wear and create removable inserts for the tool that can save time and maintenance. We design our tools to run with minimal downtime.

The Dynacast tooling division is comprised of about 25 toolmakers and 95% of them have been with Dynacast for over 25 years. Their knowledge and experience make a tremendous difference for our customers. Not only do they make the best die cast tools but they have worked with thousands of customers from nearly every industry and can modify solutions if any issues arise during the production process.
