Recently, Tom stopped by my office. He is wanting a new aluminum product design. He wants a die casting product for a custom table. He has been CNC machining parts from aluminum. He wants to mass produce hundreds or thousands of aluminum parts. He believes die casting is his best option. We talked together about his options of continuing to CNC machine the parts, aluminum sand casting, and aluminum die casting parts. We talked about matching die casting draft angles. We talked about reducing part weight while increasing part strength. We talked about various die casting alloy materials. We talked about other potential die casting issues relating to production, such as ejector pin locations and porosity in thick sections. I believe Tom will be a very informed and happy customer.
