Xometry works with partners with the latest die casting technology to deliver high quality, on-demand parts. Our typical tolerance accuracy ranges from ±0.0762 mm to ±0.127 mm for aluminium and zinc, depending on customer specifications.
Hot chamber casting, also referred to as gooseneck casting, is the most ubiquitous die casting process. In this process, the injection mechanism’s chamber is submerged in molten metal and the “gooseneck” metal supply structure guides the molten metal into the die cavity.
Cold chamber die casting is commonly employed to reduce machine corrosion. The liquified metal is loaded directly into the injection setup, removing the need to submerge the injection mechanism into the molten metal.
