Metal Mold Question and Answer
What’s the Metal injection Molding?
Metal injection molding (EAST BLUE) is a proven, innovative technology that offers the capability
of mass producing complex-shaped metal parts consistently and reliably. It is used to manufacture
products ranging from hardware jewelry accessories and car metal accessories and household metal
accessories to cell phone components and complex surgical tools and ect.
What’s the Die casting?
Die casting is a metal casting process that is characterized by forcing molten metal under high pressure
into a mold cavity. The mold cavity is created using two hardened tool steel dies which have been machined
into shape and work similarly to an injection mold during the process. Most die castings are made from non-
ferrous metals, specifically zinc, copper,aluminium,magnesium,lead,pewter, and tin-based alloys. Depending
on the type of metal being cast, a hot- or cold-chamber machine is used.The casting equipment and the metal
dies represent large capital costs and this tends to limit the process to high-volume production. Manufacture of
parts using die casting is relatively simple, involving only four main steps, which keeps the incremental cost per
item low. It is especially suited for a large quantity of small- to medium-sized castings, which is why die casting
produces more castings than any other casting process. Die castings are characterized by a very good surfacefinish
(by casting standards) and dimensional consistency.
