Benefits of Opting Zinc for the Die Casting Process

Do you know that why is the zinc a better material for the production than other metals? It is because of the weight of the zinc which is comparatively lower than the other metals. So, when it comes to selecting the most appropriate material for the production, most of the engineers opt for the zinc because many applications, especially automotive and handheld device applications, require light-weighted parts. Apart from the light-weight of the zinc, it provides several other benefits too and that is why the Zinc Die Casting is one of the most preferable manufacturing processes.

Some major advantages of using zinc in the die casting process have been described here.

Higher Castability: Among several alloys, zinc is the most fluid alloy and that is why there is no wonder that many manufacturers use it in the manufacturing of thinner, more complex and more intricate products. So, if you also want to manufacture thin, light-weighted and intricate products, then we advise that you should opt for the Zinc Die Casting method for the production.

Longer Life of the Die: If you want to earn a good profit, then is very important to invest in the high-quality tools because a big part of the production cost is spent on the manufacturing tools. Yes, it is true that aluminium and magnesium are two more options other than zinc, which provides many benefits, but you should know that the tools used in the Zinc Die Casting process can last up to 10 times longer than aluminium and 5 times longer than magnesium. So, no other option could be as good as zinc for the production of high-volume and complex components.

Less Cycle Time: During the die casting process, hot molten metal is injected into the die and then it is cooled down. So, you should opt for that alloy which takes less time for being cooled down and in this case, no other metal would be better than zinc. In short, if other factors remaining the same, then zinc can yield four to five shots per minute while aluminium can yield only 2-3 shots per minute. Thus, it can help you to increase the production by 60%.

Light-Weighted But Strong Products: Yes, zinc is a light-weight alloy, but it can provide adequate strength in the final products. So, if you are required to manufacture such products which should be light-weighted and strong, then Zinc Die Casting will be the most appropriate option for you.
