Whether in terms of sustainability, economy and reliability: the zinc die casting process combines many advantages of other casting processes – and is therefore the ideal solution in many specific applications.

But it’s best if you convince yourself!

Advantages of zinc die-cast parts

Stability

Die-cast parts made of zinc are characterized by enormous stability and at the same time thin walls.

Series production

By means of zinc die casting, entire series of castings can be produced cost-effectively.

good casting properties

Zinc has excellent casting properties. The castings are therefore very consistent.

Surface refinement

Castings made of zinc can be optimally adapted by means of surface refinement processes.

Sustainable

Zinc as a material is not consumed, but used – and convinces with optimal recycling properties.

highly economical

By means of zinc die casting, particularly economical castings can be produced for the customer.

Zinc die casting - what is that?

The zinc die casting process is predestined for the production of components with very thin-walled walls and at the same time high dimensional accuracy.

In this process, the liquid melt of a zinc alloy is poured into a die-casting mould under high pressure and at high speed.

An advantage of the zinc die-casting process is that the castings are of high precision, hardness and strength. Thus, this process – due to a relatively low melting point and a dense solidification interval – allows particularly tight tolerances and demanding surfaces to be implemented.

The cast products produced have excellent technical properties and a high degree of accuracy, so that no mechanical finishing is necessary.

Zinc die casting - sustainable?

Zinc die casting is a particularly sustainable process for the production of filigree cast products.

As with other die-casting processes, it is important to use energy and raw materials sparingly and in a resource-saving manner in order to increase the technological efficiency of the entire process.

Thus, zinc die-cast products are of high quality and are manufactured with precision. This eliminates the often time-consuming and cost-intensive reworking of the components, which – in addition to time and costs – saves energy and resources.

Furthermore, zinc as a material is not consumed but used. Even after the application – i.e. the end of the useful phase – the zinc can be collected and recycled so that it can be used again as zinc alloy for zinc die casting. There is no loss of quality, so that zinc can be used again and again.

However, most zinc products are guaranteed to be safe for long-term use in the respective application, so it takes a while before a zinc product becomes a zinc raw material again.

Zinc die casting as ideal basis for surfaces

Zinc is being used in more and more areas of our lives. Among other things, modern die-casting processes, with which high-quality products can be manufactured on the basis of zinc, are partly responsible for this.

Zinc die-casting processes are being used more and more, especially in applications requiring high stability and quantities.

Whether fittings, handles, switches or or panels – zinc alloys can be precisely cast into almost any desired shape.

In addition, surface structures can be integrated during the casting process to give the later cast part an attractive appearance.

Zinc die casting processes also offer excellent conditions for further optimizing the later cast product with a surface finish and thus adapting it to the customer’s application in the best possible way.

Thus, the cast parts made of zinc produced by Protocast are excellently suited for galvanic surface refinement. Here you can choose between general coatings, which serve the corrosion resistance, as well as special coatings – such as chrome or nickel plating.

All surfaces refined by us naturally meet the highest optical and haptic requirements.

Zinc die casting - better than other casting processes?

The zinc die casting process is not necessarily ‘better’ than other die casting processes. Depending on the respective application, the use of the zinc die-casting process can offer the customer advantages for the purpose of application-specific adaptation of the workpiece.

A major advantage of zinc die casting is the low melting temperature of 420°C, whereas the melting temperature of aluminium die casting is 650°C.

This low melting temperature in turn has an effect on the entire casting process and the equipment used for it.

The hot-chamber process can be used here, which – in addition to a lower energy input for the casting process and an increased production rate – leads to a considerably lower share of costs for casting.

A further advantage of zinc die casting compared to other die casting processes is an extended mould service life.

When choosing a suitable casting process, you can rely on comprehensive advice from our experienced engineers.
