High-Pressure Die Casting in China
Appropriate for a wide range of non-ferrous metals, high-pressure die casting uses a pressurized process to inject molten metal into a mold to cast parts for a variety of industries.
This precision high pressure die casting process offers a number of advantages:
- Complex geometries
- Near net shape
- Thinner wall sections, providing lower part weight
- Smooth finishes
- Lower cost
Parts typically require minimal machining besides normal flash removal.
The high pressure die casting process provides high integrity parts with excellent dimensional accuracy, and is ideal for an extensive array of applications, ranging from small, precision parts to large engineering products, like engine blocks. They are particularly well-suited for products which require complex tooling with moveable slides.
Avalon Precision Metalsmiths offers both magnesium and aluminum high-pressure die casting through our pre-qualified foundries in China and elsewhere in Asia, while bronze and zinc castings are handled domestically.
Our off-shore turn-around times are very competitive, with tooling available in as little as four weeks and first shots within five weeks. Offering lower tooling and per-part costs, our Asian foundry partners provide the same high-quality products and excellent turn-key production and supply chain management services available here in the U.S.
