Precision Metal Casting in China

Supply Chain Partner
Off-Shore Partner

For customers seeking high-quality precision metal castings at the most cost-effective price, Avalon Precision Metalsmiths offers off-shore casting services in China.

High-pressure die casting, sand casting and permanent mold casting are processes Avalon only offers through its casting partners in China. Avalon provides investment casting services at three U.S. production facilities and abroad.

Working with pre-qualified Chinese suppliers, Avalon provides complete turnkey metal casting and total supply chain management services; our teams in China coordinate the supply of parts and manage the tooling and process development, production, quality control, shipping, and inventory of these castings from start to finish, so you don’t have to. With more than 70 years of metal casting experience, Avalon Precision Metalsmiths can assist its customers in determining the best process and materials for their parts based on part size, complexity, end use and volume.  

All of our China-made die castings, investment castings, sand castings and permanent mold castings are manufactured to the same high standards of quality and precision as our domestic parts. As needed, we can implement a “blended supply” approach to meet your requirements, combining all of our available production processes to meet your specific needs. Low-volume, quick turnaround parts can be produced domestically, while the high-volume, low-cost castings you need can be manufactured overseas.

In most instances, the turnaround for off-shore produced castings is almost as fast as those for our domestically manufactured parts. In addition to high-quality castings, Avalon can manage your needs for a broad array of value-added services, including machining, painting, polishing, plating and assembly, and provide tooling.

High-Pressure Die Casting

Avalon Precision Metalsmiths offers cost-effective, high-volume, high-pressure die castings in aluminum, magnesium, bronze and zinc from pre-qualified suppliers who meet our own standards for quality and reliability.

Most parts produced using high-pressure die casting are up to 3 feet square, with some foundries offering larger part production capabilities.

Investment Casting

For companies requiring lower-cost investment casted parts, Avalon can coordinate production of your components in China and provide high-quality parts along with all secondary operations, such as finishing, assembly, custom packaging and supply chain management.

Investment casting is ideal for parts requiring tighter dimensional tolerances, better surface finishes, such as complex-geometry parts with intricate details such as lettering and logos.

Sand Casting

For lower-volume production, Avalon Precision Metalsmiths offers the popular sand casting process through pre-qualified partners in China. Avalon can assist with design and material decisions to drive out costs and improve part quality.

Sand casting can be used for parts weighing several ounces up to several tons and is applicable for a wide variety of metal components with complex geometries.

Permanent Mold Casting

Also known as gravity die casting, permanent mold casting can be used for small metal parts with uniform wall thickness, often in non-ferrous metals, such as aluminum alloys and copper alloys.

Avalon Precision Metalsmiths offers permanent mold casting services through pre-selected and approved partners in China for customers needing higher production volumes, high-quality, thin-walled parts.
