Cold Chamber Die Casting
Cold chamber die casting is a method for producing parts from high-melting-point alloys like aluminum. In this process, the chamber remains at room temperature and lacks a molten metal holding pot. Instead, metal is melted separately in a furnace and manually deposited into the shot chamber through a ladle. Unlike hot chamber die casting, which employs a plunger system, cold chamber die casting connects the mold directly to the shot chamber. The molten metal is then forced into the mold by a ram and held under high pressure while it solidifies.

We use high-quality aluminum alloys and advanced casting techniques to ensure the accuracy and durability of our products. We also offer competitive pricing and fast delivery to our customers.
RAPID Aluminum Die Casting
Rapid die casting using cast tooling has been a die cast prototyping and low-volume manufacturing method for many years. The process begins with an SLA model, from which H-13 steel dies are cast to a net shape in significantly less time than traditional cutting of tool steel. If needed, additional features can be added through secondary machining. One of the primary advantages of this approach is that prototype parts undergo the die casting process, ensuring that their physical and thermal properties closely match those of the final production parts
What is Aluminum Die Casting?
Aluminum die casting is a manufacturing process that can produce geometrically complex metal parts using reusable die casting molds, called dies. The liquid aluminum is injected under high pressure into the cavity of a steel die, also known as a mold, The die is made up of two halves, and after the molten aluminum has solidified, they are separated to reveal the cast aluminum part.

Aluminum Die Casting materials
Aluminum alloys are the most widely used for die-cast parts. Aluminum die-casting suppliers benefit from the total recyclability of the material and its ease of use. Due to the comparatively higher melting point, aluminum die casting may require a cold chamber casting process. Engineers use cast aluminum parts primarily for their great strength-to-weight ratios, dimensional stability, and diverse finishing options. We offer the most popular aluminum die-casting alloys, including:
- A383.0 (ADC12)
Surface finishing for Die Casting Aluminum parts
- Powder coating involves applying a dry powder paint to the parts, which is then baked onto the part. This method is often used for parts that need to be used in a harsh environment.
- Anodizing creates a durable, corrosion-resistant finish on aluminum parts. This is a chemical and electrical process which causes a thin oxide layer to form on the surface of the parts.
- Electroplating involves applying a thin layer of metal to the surface of the parts.
- Brushing use abrasive belts to draw traces on the surface of a part.
