Architectural Metalwork

Die Casting

Die Casting required a machined die into which the metal is poured and is suitable for much higher volume work than sand casting. The cost of the die represents a break even point at which for which a minimum volume is required before the die cast option becomes viable.

EDL Architectural Metalwork can offer years of experience in die cast tool design and making.

Gravity Die Casting

All die casting is carried out under gravity.

Batch Size

Gravity die casting is especially suited for applications where a large quantity of small to medium sized parts are needed typically of 50-500.

Weight

EDL have the capacity to cast components up to 20kg. The weight limited is based on the ability of material to enter the die which acts as a natural coolant due to it being metal.

Fast Turnaround

Die casting offers a fast turn around and as such allows for high volume production.
