Aluminum Die Casting
Serv-All specializes in die casting aluminum components and can accommodate jobs of all sizes with both low and high volume production programs. We believe that our customers deserve the best, so we integrate numerous services to provide you with the perfect tool and casting to match your needs. We utilize process monitoring, robotics, flow simulation, and tool maintenance programs to extend tool life, reduce cycle times, reduce costs, and provide high-quality die castings for our customers.
Advantages of Aluminum Die Casting
Aluminum is the most commonly cast non-ferrous metal in the world because it is extremely cost effective. Two of the most significant benefits of aluminum die casting are that it creates lighter parts and that it can withstand the highest operating temperatures of all die cast alloys.
Aluminum Alloy Characteristics
- Excellent strength and hardness
- High operating temperatures
