How to save during Die Casting Process

Die casting process is a manufacturing method in which molten metal flows into moulds. These tools are normally designed for each project in order to allow each component to be accurate and reproducible.

Zinc die casting process can have important advantages compared to other manufacturing process: for example can lead to major cost savings during production cycle, allows to create complex product shapes and is possible to eliminate unnecessary assembly operations combining multiple components into a single one.

Hereunder we are going to sift through every possible areas for saving during die casting process.

How Die Casting Companies can help you save Time and Budget


The importance of die casting companies in terms of saving

Die casting companies that use simulation tools can give important benefits to its customers. Using these simulation tools can allow to obtain an important saving in terms of money and time in different ways.

Moreover than product development, simulation study can be used as research and optimization tools that can be used to increase the quality of the process and to widen the know- how of the company.

Simulation is not a reconstruction of reality or of a process but can be seen as a magnifying glass used on different and specific qualities: as a litmus paper simulation gives an idea of the level of criticality of a process feature.

Simulation study is composed by a first phase of analysis, a second one of pointing out possible solutions and a third one of iterative optimization.

In this article we are going to analyze benefits of simulation during the development of a new component or product. 

Simulation can be used at different levels:

  • Product analysis
  • Mould analysis
  • Die casting process analysis

How companies can save while selecting the die caster

How companies can save while selecting the die caster


The most important element selecting the materials for the production and processes is trying to minimize costs of the product and its production.

Producing, finishing, delivering and assembling costs depend on a wide range of factors. If the quantities of parts requested are small the cost of the tooling is more important than the one of casting.

There are different areas where designers can save:

  • Material
  • Tooling
  • Casting
  • Trimming
  • Machining
  • Surface finishing
  • Assembling
  • Packaging for delivery

How a better supply chain allows savings in die casting components


The supply chain department is a fundamental part of a company TO SAVE ON DIE CASTING COMPONENTS.

Supply Chain is the management of the flow of goods and services from the point of origin to the point of consumption: a cluster of activities done in order to meet customer’s requirements, to coordinate the suppliers, clients and the company itself.

In this blog post, we are going to look at:

  • The key points of an efficient supply chain
  • The concept of supply chain
  • How to cut logistic cost
  • How to implement the solution
  • The future of supply chain
