We utilizes state-of-the-art four slide technology to produce net shape, flash free, multi-cavity, thin wall, precision zinc die castings. while holding close tolerances that are among the best in the industry. Whether you need prototypes, or production quantities for oem applications, Consistent Alloys Co., offers dependable zinc and aluminum die castings while adhering to ISO 9001 quality standards.
The method of gating that we use is called Edge Gating. The gating is done on the edges of the product. Thus eliminating gate marks and brings the parting line to the edge of the product where is is almost non visible. We also have no need for ejector marks and tapers. We perform in house Electrolytic and Electroless Nickel plating. All plating is backed up with all industry standard reliability testing.
The following are the four steps in traditional die casting, also known as high-pressure die casting, these are also the basis for any of the die casting variations: die preparation, filling, ejection, and shakeout. The dies are prepared by spraying the mold cavity with lubricant. The lubricant both helps control the temperature of the die and it also assists in the removal of the casting. The dies are then closed and molten metal is injected into the dies under high pressure; between 10 and 175 megapascals (1,500 and 25,400 psi).
