Die Casting for Original Equipment Manufacturers
Die casting is a unique process that forces molten metal into a custom mold under high pressure. Original Equipment Manufacturers rely on aluminum and zinc alloy die cast parts and metal casting services to produce unique components for custom products. SKS Die Casting and Machining, Inc. provides complete customized aluminum and zinc alloy die casting services for OEMs, delivering the custom parts your business needs.
Die Casting Advantages for OEMs
Original Equipment Manufacturers require dimensional consistency and outstanding surface finishes when die casting their custom parts and components. SKS’s metal casting services for OEMs are ideal for high-volume production runs of small to medium-sized components, delivering custom parts that match your project’s exact specifications. Additional die casting benefits for OEMs include:
- Advanced production speed
- Accurate dimensional stability
- Tight tolerances
- Variable wall thicknesses
- Fast production times
- Reduction in scrap
- Extended tool life
Zinc Alloy Dies Casting Services for OEMs
Original Equipment Manufacturers rely on zinc alloy die casting methods to produce robust and versatile parts that can withstand extreme environments and years of use. Zinc alloys are the easiest to cast of all casting metals, providing excellent physical and mechanical properties. The advantages of using zinc alloys for your OEM die casting needs include the following:
- Lower tooling costs
- Longer tool life
- Near net-shaped geometries reduces the need for future machining
- Good vibration-dampening capacity
- High yield strength and elongation
- Faster production time
- Numerous finishing options
Aluminum Die Casting Services for OEMs
Due to its vigorous and lightweight nature, aluminum is one of the preferred metal choices for Original Equipment Manufacturers. Aluminum die cast parts offer enhanced dimensional stability, corrosion resistance, and a high strength-to-weight ratio. Aluminum is also readily available and provides a lower cost of ownership compared to other metals like stainless steel and nickel. Additional aluminum die casting benefits include:
- Good mechanical properties
- Low cost
- Excellent castability
- High thermal and electrical conductivity
- Dimensional stability
Secondary CNC Machining Services for OEMs
The machining process of die cast parts must be considered well before any order for the tooling is released. A careful evaluation of machined requirements can lead to redesign for net shape die-casting or near-net shape with a reduced number of operations. Depending on your application die casting needs, SKS offers secondary CNC machining services to complete your OEM die casting needs.
To evaluate if CNC secondary services are suitable for your design, request a quote with your specs, and we’ll work with you to determine the best options for your project.
