Miniature Die Casting
R&S will design your miniature die casting part and mold. Our years of extensive experience in multiple slide miniature die casting machines means your R&S designed mold will perform to your specifications.
Depending on part configuration, very small high-volume zinc parts, weighing fractions of an ounce, may be recommended for production on special hot-chamber zinc die casting machines. Such parts, usually called “miniature” or “microminiature” die castings, can be cast flash-free, with zero draft, to very close net-shape tolerances.
Some known advantages of the miniature die casting process include:
• The ability to die cast complex, flash-free parts with specified features and tolerances as-cast
• No postcast machining, with even gate removal eliminated by automated degating
Multiple slide miniature molds are typically produced in 2”x2”, 4”x4”, and 6”x6” sizes.
