Cost reduction in zinc die casting


 

Cost reduction in zinc die casting is an activity that shall be executed without affecting the quality and functionality of the component that is produced. All the activities that aim to increase productivity, to diminish scrap rate and to simplify productive processes, as well as the choices of materials and processing, are cost reduction strategies.
