Eurocast engineering provides total solutions in the field of die-casting and machining. With a built-up area of 45,000 square feet and more than a decade of experience, we challenge the processes of tooling, die-casting and machining with our knowledge, passion and hard work. We have consolidated the entire setup under one roof comprising of die-casting, trimming,machining, surface finishing, and quality inspection. This helps us meet our customer requirements comfortably and helps them expedite the decision-making process.
Die casting is a metal casting process that is characterized by forcing molten metal under high pressure into a mold cavity. The mold cavity is created using two hardened tool steel dies which have been machined into shape and work similarly to an injection mold during the process. Most die castings are made from non-ferrous metals, specifically zinc, copper, aluminum, magnesium, lead, pewter, and tin-based alloys. Depending on the type of metal being cast, a hot- or cold-chamber machine is used.
The casting equipment and the metal dies represent large capital costs and this tends to limit the process to high-volume production. Manufacture of parts using die casting is technically challenging, involving only four main steps, which keeps the incremental cost per item low. It is especially suited for a large quantity of small- to medium-sized castings, which is why die casting produces more castings than any other casting process. Die castings are characterized by a very good surface finish (by casting standards) and dimensional consistency.
