Die-casting is the process performed to manufacture metal parts that are customized and engineered by using molten metal that is injected under high pressure into molds. There are also known as dies, which are usually made from high-quality tool steel.

The dies can be created and designed to manufacture various shapes and designs with unique product features according to the client’s product specifications. Each product manufactured in this process will have a smooth and even surface, but can be customized to have different textured surfaces.

The die-casting process is usually chosen for metal products that requires cosmetic finishes. This process also adds durability to non-ferrous metals like zinc and aluminum.
