Design, engineering, manufacture
Typical use cases:
- Non-ferrous metals
- Medium to large quantity production runs
- Small to medium size castings
DIE CASTING ADVANTAGES
Other benefits include:
- Variable wall thicknesses
- Tighter tolerances
- Fewer steps from raw material to finished part
- Fast production cycle times
- Reduction in material scrap
- Long tool life, especially for zinc and magnesium
DIE CASTING ALLOYS
Zinc, aluminum, and magnesium are the three main die casting alloys. They are normally non-ferrous and their mechanical properties vary greatly to fit almost every type of application a manufacturer may need. Not only can die cast alloys withstand high operating temperatures, but they are also fully recyclable. Die cast alloys also have:
- Good corrosion resistance
- High strength and hardness
- High thermal conductivity
- High electrical conductivity
- Outstanding EMI/RFI shielding properties
- Good finishing characteristics
Separately, each die cast alloy offers a variety of benefits that the other may not offer. That is one of the great things about die casting, you do not have to be limited when it comes to choosing the right metal.

DIE CASTING PROCESS
There isn’t one single process that can suit every project. Each project is different which is why Dynacast offers multiple solutions for all die casting needs. This ensures the right process is always used for the right application. At Dynacast, we offer three different types of die casting processes.
Used for zinc, some magnesium alloys, and other low-melting, hot-chamber die casting is a great option for alloys that do not readily attack and erode metal pots, cylinders, and plungers.
Better suited for metals with high melting points such as aluminum, during cold-chamber die casting, metal is liquefied and then ladled into a cold chamber where a hydraulically operated plunger pushes the metal into the die.
We came to SinoScan with a product design that still needed significant development. SinoScan have been able to steer us safely through development to a finished product - and, in addition, they have been able to manufacture our product.
I would be happy to recommend SinoScan to anyone looking for a product development partner, a product manufacturer - or both."
