Aluminum die casting

Aluminum die casting

Our speciality is large aluminum die casting in 535.0 (Almag 35). This alloy requires no heat treating and has good tensile properties and high ductility, outstanding corrosion resistance and excellent dimensional stability. It machines much easier than the more common silicon-containing aluminium alloys, producing an excellent surface finish and requires no intermediate stress relieving as it does not distort during machining.

We also produce large and small castings in A356.0 and 356.0 alloys which are usually heat treated to a T5 or T6 condition. These alloys offer excellent tensile properties and good castability.

Zinc die casting we produce range from 20 to 16,000 pounds and are used primarily for trim and forming dies.

Along with our move to new facilities, we have added the capability of producing castings in copper base alloys.

With many years of casting experience, we can assist you in designing economical castings to meet your needs.

Many of our customers and potential customers have been requesting completely machined, anodized, painted and sometimes assembled components rather than only raw castings. Because meeting our customers’ needs is our number one priority, we have decided to expand our services to include these value-added operations.

In order to accomplish this we have established relationships with several local companies who are capable of providing these additional services. Our customers can now place a single order for components that are ready for final assembly at their facility. We take care of scheduling and coordinating all operations as well as assuring compliance with all order requirements.

We are die casting china company that We have supplied:

Completely machined, anodized and painted components to the US Navy;
