When looking for fast large-scale production of parts without sacrificing detail and surface quality, die casting is a perfect manufacturing option.
But you won’t get the full benefits of die casting without knowledgable engineers, a communicative project managing team, or industry leading facilities.
How it Works
Die casting describes the process of forcing molten metals under high pressure into machined mold cavities to produce metal parts.
The die casting method is especially suited for applications where large quantities of small- to medium-sized parts are needed with good detail, fine surface quality and dimensional consistency.

Our die-casting process
Die casting involves mold tool (die) fabrication, and the die may have more than one cavity. The process is effective for soft alloys like zinc and aluminum alloys because of low melting temperatures.
We inject molten metal into the cavity so that it can take the desired shape. Then, when we remove the part, it gets hardened.
We use low to high pressure based on the scope of your die-casting project. This is because it repeatedly produces complicated, tight-tolerance parts at a considerable production volume. However, we also apply semi-solid casting and squeeze casting methods, which are more innovative than other conventional processes.
Die casting solutions- Hot chamber and cold chamber
At Quickparts, we specialize in both types of die casting- Hot chamber and cold chamber.
We choose lead, magnesium, and zinc for hot chamber casting methods. We fill the holding pot with metal and heat it with the hot chamber casting. Pressure helps in holding the meal together. When the metal is cool, the die opens. You will then receive the casted piece.
On the contrary, we can conduct the cold chamber casting at room temperature. There is a direct connection between the mold and the shot chamber. We choose aluminum for this die-casting process.
