About Multi-Slide Die Casting Tools

The sole difference between multi-slide die casting and hot-chamber die casting is the build and operation of the casting tool and the equipment required to operate the tool. Hot-chamber casting employs a two-part tool making it costly and tough for die casters to make components with complex geometries in a foundry. However, multi-slide tooling is […]

Why Metal Injection Molding is Better than Machining

Metal Injection Molding (MIM) is a process that efficiently merges powered metallurgy and plastic injection molding. Die casters heavily relies on this process because it is capable of producing large quantities of precise complex parts with metals that are not suitable for die casting such as stainless steel and other low alloy steels. Machining process […]
