Production process improvement in the die casting industry


 

Process improvement, in the zinc die casting industry as well as in many other manufacturing sectors, consists of a series of actions undertaken to enhance production times, to reduce costs and, consequently, to obtain results that satisfy client’s requests in terms of timing and performance.

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
