Zinc Pressure Die Casting

This process involves pouring molten zinc metal into a steel die, which has multiple cavities. These components are then molded into an exact replica of the parts. The advantages of pressure zinc die casting over other methods are its rapid solidification and cooling properties.

Advantages of Zinc Die Casting

Aside from being economical, other factors that make zinc die casting different from other processes include its faster production rates and better tolerances. Also, since zinc is a high-quality metal, it can produce components with a tight tolerances. Another advantage of zinc die casting is its ability to achieve a net shape that is less than 0.001” thick. Compared to other metal components, such as aluminum and magnesium, zinc die casting produces components much faster. It also has better tolerances. This process can also be referred to as zero-machining. Due to its low repeatability, zinc die casting can produce components with a net shape that's less than a thousandth of a millimeter thick.



One of the biggest advantages of zinc die casting is its ability to produce components with thin wall sections, which can be used for lower weight and lower material costs. With the help of our team, you can get the most out of your design by taking advantage of its various properties. Aside from mold design, our team also handles various aspects of zinc die casting, such as packaging and finishing. With its high wear and bearing properties, zinc can help reduce the fabrication cost of your project.



Zinc Die Casting for Automotive Parts

Although zinc die casting is commonly used for making industrial and building components, it is also used for the production of automotive parts. Due to its high strength and durability, it’s the ideal material for making various automotive components. In fact, die casting for the automotive industry dates back to the time when it was first used for making parts. Since it has a high strength and can endure various conditions, zinc die casting is often used as an alternative to metal fabrication. Many applications can be zinc die cast manufactured, including:


● Engine and other under-the-hood components

● Interior automotive aesthetic parts

● Brake parts and systems

● Power steering systems

● Fuel systems

● Air-conditioning components and systems

● Complex net-shaped housings

● Electronic devices


Due to its anti-corrosion properties, zinc die casting is widely used in the automotive industry. At TEAM MFG, we are a leading manufacturer of zinc die casting.



Zinc Die Casting or Aluminum Die Casting?

Most die casting materials used for aluminum components are A380 and A383. These two commonly used materials have the best combination of properties and castability. Aside from automobiles, aluminum alloy die casting is also commonly used in various industries such as electronic devices, communications equipment, and power tools. Due to its high impact strength, zinc die casting components are more durable than those made with other metals. Also, due to its lower pressure and lower temperature, they require less maintenance. For smaller die castings or components that require thinner sections, zinc and ZA alloy are commonly used. Due to its high impact strength, zinc die casting components are more durable than those made with other metals. In addition, its die life is significantly longer than that of aluminum and magnesium.



Deciding which material to use for your part depends on the design specifications. Usually, the properties of the alloy are the key factors that determine which one will work best for your project. For light applications, aluminum die casting is the best choice. However, for smaller and thinner parts, zinc die casting is the best choice.
