Casting Metal Basics
Casting metal is an ideal process for mass producing parts and components. When casting metal parts, molten metal is forced under high pressure into a die cavity. Advances in casting technology have made the process more and more efficient, and highly accurate, finely detailed parts that require little to no additional processing can be produced with exceptional repeatability.
Casting metal parts, instead of manufacturing them via other methods such as extrusion, allows for nearly unlimited part shapes and sizes. El-Com Systems works with a range of non-ferrous metals and can produce zinc, copper, magnesium, and aluminum castings. Other materials are available to meet customer specifications.
We utilize numerous methods of casting metal parts, including die casting, permanent mold casting, lost wax investment casting, sand casting and others. Each casting method has its own advantages and disadvantages, and is uniquely suited to specific applications. Our variety of capabilities gives us the versatility to provide metal and aluminum casting services customized to each customer’s design requirements.
