Die Casting Services

Die casting offers many advantages over other manufacturing techniques. It is one of the most efficient methods for producing a range of components because it allows for mass production of complex, identical shapes in a very short amount of time. The components produced by die casting are also stronger and more durable than those produced by other methods. These are just a few of the advantages of die casting components for the automotive, hydraulic, railway, electronic, marine, commercial and mining industries.

Process

The die casting process works by injecting liquid metal under high pressure into a precision mold cavity. Typically, the mold cavity has been previously machined with hardened tool steel. Once the molten liquid solidifies within the die cavity, the cavity is removed and the casting is ejected. This process enables manufacturers to produce small, intricate shapes with smooth or textured surfaces quickly and accurately. Housings pumps, brackets, adapters and handles are some of our most common die casting components.

Our Die Casting Capabilities

CM International produces die casted parts from 1”-30” in size (12mm-750mm) and works with many materials. We offer a 12 week lead time for large orders and our tolerances are always to customer specifications based on the size of the part, with general tolerance per ISO 2768 /ASME Y14.5-2009. We are headquartered in Chicago with manufacturing facilities located in China, which allows us to provide high-quality, cost-efficient die casting components to our US customers.
