Die casting in small and medium-sized batches
Do you need complex diecast parts in small and medium-size batches?
G.W.P. specializes in the economical manufacture of high quality diecast parts in small and medium batches. Low-cost molds for diecast parts give our customers the decisive edge. Depending on the component, we can offer diecast parts at competitive prices starting at approximately 300 units. Our thorough quality assurance yields diecast parts with consistent product quality.
G.W.P. offers the following die casting methods:
The die casting process
Diecasting is an industrial casting process for manufacturing cast parts of aluminum, zinc, magnesium or brass. The molten metal is pressed under high pressure into the die where it hardens and is then automatically ejected. A die casting die can contain several cavities. Depending on the die, series ranging from approximately 300 to 400,000 molded parts can be produced due to the high output of the dies. Diecasting allows parts to be manufactured with very thin walls and smooth surfaces and edges. Due to the high strength, very good dimensional accuracy and reproducibility, diecasting is the optimum casting procedure for complex components and demanding applications, both in terms of quality and economy.
We work with cold chamber and hot chamber die casting machines with up to 1,200 t clamping force and specialize in quality molds designed for small and medium batch sizes. Depending on the design and construction layout of the component, batch sizes of up to 100,000 shots are possible in aluminum die casting, and 200,000 shots in zinc die casting. To achieve superior quality, we use CNC machining centers to finish the cast parts. If desired, we will add tailored components to your diecast parts in additional production steps and will assemble these into modules and assemblies.
Diecast components are used in many branches of industry for housings, covers, fittings or mountings. Depending on the requirements, we supply diecast surfaces for decorative uses, improved corrosion protection or improved wear resistance. Depending on the alloy and finishing process, diecast parts can be provided with the following surfaces: Sandblasting, glass bead blasting, barrel finishing, brushing, polishing, phosphating, passivating, powder coating, wet painting, eloxating, copper plating, nickel plating, screen printing or pad printing.
