Pressure die casting

  • Pressure die casting is a process where metal is melted and forced into steel dies. The metal hardens into the desired shape. Molten metal is injected into a die cavity through a channel by movement of a plunger. After a preset solidification time, the plunger reverses direction, the part is ejected, and the machine is ready for the next cycle.
  • Die-cast motor rotors are produced in aluminum today because rotor fabrication by pressure die-casting is an established practice.
  • Pressure die cast products can be found in many different areas – from water taps to automotive oil pans or connector casings.
