Our Disciplines

Die Casting

Die casting is a method of moulding materials under pressure. Typically, die casting is used in forming aluminium, magnesium, and copper-based alloys and non-ferrous metals. It is characterized by the use of a mould cavity to apply high pressure to the molten metal. Moulds are usually machined from higher strength alloys. This process is somewhat similar to injection moulding. Depending on the type of die casting, a cold chamber die casting machine, or a hot chamber die casting machine is required.

Investment Casting

Our most common and widely used service, Investment casting (also known as lost-wax casting) is a casting process that has been practiced for thousands of years. With lost wax process being one of the oldest known metal forming techniques. It is used for metals that are difficult to be machined or fabricated.

As the patterns or "moulds" are not exposed to molten metals, tooling life is guaranteed, with maintenance and "end of life" replacement undertaken by ourselves.

Advantages

Disadvantages

High component dimensional consistency and uniform design.

A reduced need for post-casting machining.

High initial die costs

Limited to nonferrous metals

Size of part limited

Advantages

Disadvantages

A high degree of accuracy and precise dimensional results.

The ability to create thin-walled parts with complex geometries.

The capacity for casting both ferrous and non-ferrous materials.

Size of part limited

Patterns and moulds
