DIE CASTING TRIM TOOLING
After a part is produced with the diecasting tooling in the diecasting machine, a die casting trim tool called a trim die is used to sheer the excess
aluminum around the parts. Die casting trim dies can save as much as 15% in the part price by speeding up the production process.
Die casting trim dies cut or shear excess aluminum from die cast parts. The trim die sits or is mounted into a
trim press that hydraulically forces the two halves of the trim die together with several tons of pressure.
Die Casting Tooling Inserts
Pictured to the right are a set of customer owned diecast inserts mounted in a diecast mold base owned by the
die casting company. The
Die Casting Tooling Inserts are mounted in a diecasting mold base, or called a die casting die.
These are steel inserts that come in contact wih the molten aluminum.
