PRESSURE DIE CASTING
Cost-effective for long production runs. Handles complexity and repeatability extremely well.
A casting method in which a two-part mould is used which can be opened and closed. When the mould is closed it is completely sealed. Molten metal is forced in under high pressure so that it completely fills the cavity. The mould is liquid cooled to maintain the right performance and service life while also keeping cycle times down.
Pressure die casting is a method that is very cost-effective for long production runs, since the tool cost is relatively high. For shorter runs gravity die casting or sand casting are alternative methods with lower tool costs.
- Fast throughput time
- Good design options
- Fine surface

Metal injection moulding, MIM, is very similar to the injection moulding of plastic parts. Extremely complicated shapes can be manufactured with high precision.
A production technology in which a powder is compressed under high pressure in a closed tool to create the shape of the part.
By using what is known as the lost wax process, products can be cast with very high precision.
During pressure die casting molten metal is forced into a mould under pressure. A high degree of dimensional accuracy can be attained, which often results in less machining.
Sand casting is a cost-effective process for small and medium-sized production runs where the precision and surface requirements are not crucial factors.
Everything from simple to complicated machining. Cost-effective and where precision and demanding tolerance and surface requirements are specified.
We often recommend forging or hot pressing when the requirements for strength are high. When the conditions are right, it is possible to save money by switching from machining to forging/hot pressing.
Pre-assembled parts with integral components of varying kinds and materials. An all-in package at a fixed cost.
