Cost Reduction with Zinc Alloys in the Automotive Industry


Zinc is very versatile material: a combination of factors makes it a unique material from various perspectives, certainly from a cost point of view. According to that, the application of die cast zinc alloy components in the automotive industry can be an efficient solution to reduce production costs while maintaining the high levels of resistance, service life and hardness required by that sector.

How die casting finish can help reducing product cost


It may seem impossible but it is not! Reducing costs adding a die casting finish is really possible. The trick is just trusting your supplier and its expertise: collaboration with it in co-design terms. Starting a collaboration with suppliers can help clients to find a suitable solution to obtain the same requirements: with new solutions, but less costs.

Optimizing die casting engineering for cost reduction


Industry 4.0 tries to gather every phase of production process into simulation. In particular in die casting engineering, simulation has to consider several points: productive plant, die casting tools, automation tools, cooling tools, secondary operation tools.

How to select zinc die casting manufacturers


Choosing the right supplier, in a wide range of zinc die casting manufacturers, is a tough issue. Having the right partner helps to reach planning and project goals and can be useful to develop a product or component in a co-design activity, while a bad partner could be a hard obstacle to catch the goals.

The correct approach to product design for die casting

by Martina Fagnani November 25, 2016

The correct approach to product design for die casting


For a correct approach to product design for die casting it is important that every part involved has knowledge of the industrial process. These competences need to be part both of the client and the supplier's technology, to allow a co-design work that can improve the product or the component. In this article we are presenting two different perspectives of zinc die casting technology: product design and process design.

Co-design in zinc die casting: improving your idea or product


The activity of co-design is our way to support our costumer in the initial phase of project or improving existing products or components. Design products or components means face the complexity. Co-design is a crucial phase of the entire process of product design and Bruschi can help you in the all stages, such as simulation, prototyping, testing, accelerate time to market, process optimization.
