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.

For selecting the most suitable zinc die casting manufacturer a customer needs to consider 5 important aspects such as:

  • Co-design service
  • Product quality
  • Delivery time
  • Mould design
  • Cost effectiveness

How to use die casting simulation for cost reduction

How to use die casting simulation for cost reduction


Die casting simulation software is a product developed in the past few years thanks to technology innovation that has allowed a higher computing power and innovative numerical algorithms. These software allow to approximate with a good precision the behaviour of material fluid inside the mould cavity, adding the chance of a thermo-fluid dynamic analysis of the mould. This kind of analysis is called CFD simulation (Computational Fluid Dynamics).

In this post we are going to look at:

  • the benefits of die casting simulation
  • avoiding non-compliant products creation
  • avoiding material waste
  • saving time avoiding empirical tests

Die casting mould design – how to avoid cold laps


The concept of die casting mould design concerns the design of the mould but in general it defines the entire process of die casting. It’s a phase of the product industrialization that has clear characteristics to avoid many defects: for example cold laps.

In this article we are going to explain how to avoid cold laps with the optimization of the die casting mould design, and in particular:

  • How the cold laps are produced
  • How to proceed to avoid cold laps defect in die casting mould design and the production process
