Historically, in order to cast aluminum with HPDC Aluminum Casting, we would have used custom formulated high-fluidity alloys. However, our engineers recently developed a method to apply this technology to standard alloys. By using improved process control, state-of-the-art tool design, and machine enhancements, we fundamentally changed the die casting industry forever.

Specializing in low to high volume, sand and permanent mold aluminum castings, Cast Metals Technology offers turn-key solutions from beginning to end. Our services include tooling construction, casting, CNC machining, powder coating, anodizing, impregnation and assembly.

HPDC Aluminum Casting One of the most important benefits of thin-walled aluminum die casting is that it creates lighter parts—with more surface finishing options than other die cast alloys. Creating a part with 0.5mm walls instead of 2mm offers a 75% reduction in weight, which is a big deal—especially when you’re trying to take weight out of an automobile component or a hand-held mobile device. Aluminum can also withstand the highest operating temperatures of all the die cast alloys. Moreover, cast aluminum is versatile, corrosion resistant; it retains high dimensional stability with thin walls, and can be used in almost any industry.
