Why Zinc Die Castings?

Why Zinc Die Castings?

The die casting process is a forming process in which molten metal is injected into the cavity of a steel die. The cavity is precision machined, with tight tolerances, into a block of heat resistant tool steel. Coupled with process control and the uniform shrinkage characteristics of zinc alloys, this process results in castings with exact precision.
