Zinc Die Casting and Its Use on Tools

diecasting machine injects aluminum into mold to make partZinc Die Casting and Its Use on Tools. Hardware parts are chiefly made of metal. It is the most common material used for the production of tools because of its strength and robustness. Repairs, after all, need fortitude not only from the wielder of the tool but from the tool itself. A flexible screwdriver, after all, is not good in execution of its function if it is made of inferior material.

One process of manufacturing tools and other metal parts is zinc die casting. Hardware parts such as wrenches, electrical connectors, gearbox and turbine housings, and locks can be made out of zinc. This metal is a decent foundation of raw material because it shows characteristics that are primary in the mind of an astute customer: strength, ductility, and durability.

The strength, ductility, and durability alone are enough to persuade any person to change to materials made from zinc die casting. Zinc hardware parts made from zinc are assured to be durable, able to endure strong impacts from hammering, screwing, and bolting.

Apart from tools, zinc is also used in the construction of wires, parts of appliances and laptops, lights, aircrafts, and other objects. It can be used in various products because of its flexibility and endurance.

Construction and repair are two activities that need dependence on human forte as well as tools. It is but appropriate that the tools used in these activities match the stress and pressure essential by the jobs. Objects made of zinc may just be the best match for people who are looking for such.

    Die Casting Comparison of Zinc Parts and Aluminum Parts in 2023

    Die Casting Comparison of Zinc Parts and Aluminum Parts. Kinetic Die Casting Company produces parts for our customers in two types of metals. Aluminum and Zinc alloys. Most of the parts we produce are in aluminum.

    When we get a quote request that does not specify the materiel, we ask a few questions to determine which metal would be better for them.

    1. Does weight matter? Zinc weighs about two and half (2.44) times more than aluminum. In other words, a part that weighs five (5) pounds in aluminum will weigh over twelve (12.22) pounds in zinc.
    2. Do you need EMI/RF shielding? Do you need electrical conductivity? Aluminum is much more electrically conductive than zinc, making it a better shield for RF/EMI.
    3. Do you need thermal conductivity? Aluminum is used by many manufacturers as a heat sink.
    4. Do you want parts with a highly polished finished surface? Zinc polishes very well, much better than aluminum.
    5. Do you need your parts plated? Zinc parts can be plated much better than aluminum.
    6. Are you intending to use the parts in a salt environment? Aluminum decays faster than zinc in a salty environment.
