Aluminium Die Casting
Die Casting, also known as permanent mould casting, is chosen for its repeatability and precision of high production volumes of identical components made from metals with low melting points like aluminum and zinc. Kormax offers Aluminium Die Casting. During the manufacturing process molten metal is poured or forced into project specific steel moulds which allows for thin-walled parts with intricate geometries, reduced porosity, and aesthetic pleasing finishes.
High-Pressure (HPDC), Low-Pressure (LPDC), and Gravity Feed Die Casting (GFDC) Services
Kormax offers die casting services for mainly Aluminum (Al-9Si and Al-12Si) alloy components and is equipped to handle mass production of synonymous parts that requires minimized weight by maintaining thin wall sections in the castings. Depending on the project’s specific requirements, Kormax can advise on the most suitable and cost-effective Die Casting method and process design.
Die Casting Advantages
Suitable for low-cost, high-volume, fast production cycles
Appropriate for thin-walled products
Repeatability – uniform quality, appearance, and dimensional accuracy maintained
High quality parts with long service life
Lower labour cost – reduced need for assembly
Versatility of design – complex shapes, geometry, surface texture or luster
