Aluminum Die Casting Parts vs Plastic Injection Molded Parts.

Plastic Injection molding and aluminum die casting are similar in a lot of ways:

  • Both require a mold or tool to produce parts.
  • The tooling cost is very similar in both industries.
  • Both processes inject material into a mold to make parts.
  • Both processes can make hundreds or thousands of parts every day.

Plastic Injection Molded Parts
Advantages

  • Plastic parts are produced at a lower temperature than aluminum parts, plastic melts at only a few hundred degrees Fahrenheit
  • Plastic Parts weigh less than aluminum die casting parts.

Disadvantages:

  • Plastic is not typically biodegradable
  • Plastic parts require metal inserts to hold a thread for screws.
  • Plastic does not block EMI/RF waves
  • Plastic Parts are not as strong.

Aluminum Die Casting Parts

Disadvantages

  • Aluminum parts weigh more than plastic.
  • Aluminum parts are produced in only one color and need paint or powder coat for color.

Advantages

  • Aluminum naturally shields EMI/RF waves.
  • Holes can be directly threaded into the parts.
  • Features can be machined into aluminum.
  • Aluminum has great thermal transference properties.
  • Aluminum is a natural conductor of electricity.
  • Aluminum material is environmentally friendly and can be recycled easily when done.
  • All aluminum alloys (360, 380, 383, and 413) are made from recycled materials.
  • Aluminum parts are stronger than plastic
