Cost Reduction with Zinc Alloys in the Automotive Industry


Zinc alloys is very versatile material. A combination of factors make it unique material from various perspectives, certainly the cost aspect.

In according to that, the application of die cast zinc alloy components in the automotive industry can be an efficient solution to reduce production costs whilst maintaining the high levels of resistance, service life and hardness required by that sector.

Following are some of the advantages that make zinc a strategic material when striving for cost reduction for a company that is active in the automotive sector.

These are factors to bear in mind when considering zinc as an option:

  • Production costs
  • Surface treatments
  • Machining precision
  • Technical characteristics
  • Energy savings

The Advantages of Zinc Casting Alloys

Zinc casting alloys provide a better combination of strength, toughness, rigidity, bearing, performance and economical castability than any other alloy possible. In fact their properties often exceed the ones of other alloys such as aluminium, magnesium, bronze, plastics and other cast irons. For its properties of strength and duration zinc is the perfect choice for saving time and money.

Benefits of simulation in die casting design


In our previous blog post we introduced the topic of simulation software when discussing the possible ways to avoid the most common defects of high pressure zinc die casting such as porosity.

In the development phase of die casting design the use of process simulation offers several benefits as it improves the collaboration of the designers with the downstream production chain, ensuring that all components leaving the development department are suitable for casting and can be manufactured in an economical process.

Today we are taking into consideration both tangible and intangible benefits of simulation in die casting design.

These benefits are:

  • COST REDUCTION
  • VALUE ADDITION
