High Pressure Die Casting : Aluminium & Zinc
High pressure die casting provides the shortest route from molten metal to completed component, by injecting molten metal into a hardened tool steel mould and allowing it to solidify under pressure before ejection.
This process allows fast, precise, cost effective production of aluminium or zinc die castings, meeting the needs of hi-tech industries where product appearance and dimensional tolerances are critical. MRT have high pressure die casting machines with locking forces of between 220 and 530 tonnes. All feature computerised real-time shot control, automatic ladling, die-spray, automatic casting extraction and cooling.
Small Quantities? - No Problem! Many pressure die casting foundries only offer their services for high volume orders, claiming that lengthy set-ups make the process prohibitive to small quantities of zinc or aluminium die castings. MRT have optimised their tooling preparation and set-up operations to make the process more accessible to customers who require only small quantities of aluminium or zinc castings, but whose applications would benefit from the excellent dimensional and cosmetic properties of pressure die casting. So, MRT can provide the complete service, whether you require a batch of 10 or 10,000.
