Virtually all sectors use Zinc components.
There are several processes by which metals are processed into different forms. Die casting is one of the popular manufacturing processes. It is preferred above all other kinds of processes due to the quality of the finished goods and the ease of manufacture.
Zinc is a widely used and easily available metal which has several different variations to choose from to suit the individual specification.
Key Advantages of Zinc Alloy Die Casting:
There are many benefits of using Zinc alloy over others.
Thinner wall sections can be achieved compared to other metals due to high casting fluidity.
High production rates can be achieved.
The number of secondary machining operations is very little or none at all.
The surfaces of the finished products can be made smooth or patterned to suit.
It is possible to cast low fluidity metals.
Very high dimensional accuracy can be obtained.
The die casting components can achieve high tensile strengths.
Zinc alloys are strong, and stable with high dimensional accuracy and thermal conductivity, resisting to corrosion, and are recyclable.
