What is Die Casting

in Metal

Die casting is the process by which molten metal under high pressure is forced into steel molds so as to create specific shapes after the metal cools. Die casting is used to create any number of household objects, from toys to bathroom faucets, as well as any number of much larger metal fixtures.

The goals in designing die cast aluminum parts should be low cost-per-part and maximum production in cast units. Computer aided design software (CAD) will contribute directly to these goals. A number of guidelines have been developed within the CAD and die casting community to make these goals more attainable.


Aluminum casting is the process of pouring molten aluminum into a mold to create a part of a desired shape. Casting is used in many different industries to create a wide range of parts. Aluminum is a lightweight yet strong metal with excellent corrosion resistance. The amateur hobbyist can create aluminum castings with the right tools, instructions and safety precautions.

Die Cast Methods

The hot chamber: Hot-chamber machines, also known as gooseneck machines, rely upon a pool of molten metal to feed the die.Cold chamber methods: These are used when the casting alloy cannot be used in hot-chamber machines; these include aluminium, zinc alloys with a large composition of aluminium, magnesium and copper. The processes for these machines start with melting the metal in a separate furnace.


Both utilize injection systems, but in different ways. The hot system is used for metals with low melting points such zinc, copper and lead. The injection system itself is immersed in a bath of molten metal where it then fills with the liquefied metal. The cold chamber method is used for metals with higher melting points like aluminium. A manual or automatic ladle pours the molten metal into a cylindrical sleeve and is then sealed under pressure to cool.


At  Aluminium Die Casting Manufacturer Company Endurance makes aluminium die castings using both un-questionable and low stress strategy. Endurance uses the un- questionable aluminium die launching strategy mainly for two wheelers, three wheelers and four wheelers.  At Endurance, all items are designed and tested with uncompromising quality examining. The elements during production go through extensive quality checks at each stage which ensure that quality expectations specified. It is a continuous practice of Endurance to set quality standards in the industry with its quality items which will eventually mix its goal to pay attention to a successful and maintainable growth structure.
