Definitions for "Die Casting"
Keywords:  molten, reusable, mold, cast, curately
This is the process of using metal instead of plastic in an injection molding setup.
A rapid, water-cooled permanent mold casting process limited to nonferrous metals. There are three types: the plunger-type operated hydraulically, mechanically or by compressed air with or without a gooseneck; the direct-air injection which forces metal from a goose-neck into the die, and the Cold-Chamber Machine. All force the metal into the die with a pressure greater than that of gravity flow.
Casting in a reusable mold (the die). Die-casting are generally precisely manufactured parts requiring a high initial investment in the die.
