Why Choose Gravity Die Casting for Aluminum Parts?

Why Choose Gravity Die Casting for Aluminum Parts

Gravity die casting is one of the common aluminum casting methods to creat aluminum products with good quality. Here, the “good quality” mainly lies in “good strength, fewer air bulles, and smooth surface finish, etc”. Strength At CFS Foundry, we usually cast parts with super-strong A356 aluminium alloy. Compared to A380 aluminum alloy used in pressure die casting process, gravity die cast A356 alloy is around 10% stronger than pressure die cast A380. To prove this, we ever tested the…

Why Go For Stainless Steel Lost Wax Casting?

Why Go For Stainless Steel Lost Wax Casting

Stainless steel is considered as one of the best metals used in lost wax casting process. This material is widely known for its excellent corrosion resistance and strength, making it ideal to cast stainless steel parts for numerous applications. Before the beginning of stainless steel lost wax casting process, a specific mold in two halves is highly precise machined. When the mold is ready, wax is injected into the mold to form a wax pattern that has the same shape…
