Zinc Die Casting

Zinc Die Casting

Zinc Die Casting: High Precision and Excellent Properties. Zinc is one of the most versatile die cast metals. It provides higher precision with lower tooling costs when compared to other die cast metals like aluminum or magnesium. Zinc die casting also offers a broad range of excellent physical and mechanical properties, finishing characteristics, and is the easiest to cast.

Advantages of Using Zinc

One of the most significant advantages of zinc is the fact that it reduces tooling costs. Die cast tooling is typically a significant cost factor, so it’s important to save where you can. Because zinc has a low melting temperature, dies can last up to 10 times longer than those used in aluminum die casting and about five times longer than dies used for magnesium. That means fewer repairs, less downtime, and more parts produced over the life of the tool. Small zinc parts can utilize the high-speed 4-slide miniature zinc die casting process, which allows for significantly lower upfront tooling costs when compared to aluminum or magnesium. The many advantages of zinc allow it to be used in a wide range of industries and applications. The advantages of zinc die casting include:

  • Longer tool life
  • Lower tooling cost (particularly if it can use the miniature zinc die casting process)
  • The ability to cast near net-shaped complex geometries with thinner walls and less draft angle than castings produced with other metals reduces the need for machine features.
  • Excellent balance of mechanical and physical properties, including higher yield strength and elongation when compared to aluminum or magnesium.
  • Good vibration dampening capacity compared to aluminum
  • Wide range of finishing options
  • Faster production time

Zinc Die Casting Process

Zinc is cast with the fast-cycling die casting process, which utilizes a component called a gooseneck that is submerged in a furnace filled with molten metal. Metal automatically enters the shot chamber through a hole in the gooseneck. A vertical plunger then seals the hole and drives the metal into the back of the die with high pressure. The part rapidly solidifies (within seconds), and the part is ejected from the tool.

Integrated Factory Resources

We are your one-stop manufacturing solution provider for customized products with the joint effort & support from our 120 partnership subcontractors mainly for the production of metals & plastics. We can expand much faster but the top management decide to keep GEMS a compact, dedicated and professional company, which allows our team to really focus and deliver on your projects without any excuse or compromise. We strive to be a long-term, reliable and trustworthy partner of our customers rather than just being a contractor, and look forward to growing the company with customers’ success.

Manufacturing Veteran Team

With the passing years, we are proud to build up a manufacturing veteran team with rich experience and full expertise to fulfill your specific demand. From mold making, injection molding, die casting, stamping and sheet metal, to 2nd processes like CNC machining, oil spraying, powder coating and chrome plating, and then assembling and packaging and related, we always have someone in house to be an expert to resolve the issues in different stages of product development. We also specialize in providing charger, cable and hub, plus other electronic accessories that support a complete set of product.

Strong Project Management

“Think global, execute local” is the principle of our work. Time, quality and cost are the three key elements to be considered throughout the product development from concept design to mass production. A detailed plan with weekly conference call update is a critical gateway to ensure these three key elements are successfully implemented, also assuring that all parties are on the same page. Communication is the Secret to Success . Everyone works independently to take care his own job, but together we are a team to get things done and are your daily eyes and ears onsite in China.

Flexible Operation & Customization

We offer a wide variety of products, such as mold, component and assembly product, and certain value-added services. For logo or branding product, we have in house resources to complete a color mix that can perfectly match a brand’s unique colors in fast and cost-effective way. Understood the client needs production parts but having a hard time to find a vendor since the order quantity is as low as 1000 or lower. GEMS is well set up for low volume injection molding or die casting projects. Surely our team is also capable of building SPI Class 101 mold that is designed & made for 1 million cycles or more of producing the same high quality parts consistently.
