Die Casting Part Pricing – How Die Casting Part Prices are Established.
Kinetic Die Casting Company has a specific pricing model that is similar and also different from our competitors. Here are a few issues to think about when asking for a die casting part price.
- Die Casting Part Size
- Die Casting Part Weight
- Die Casting Material Type
- Inspection Requirements
- Die Casting Part Quantity
- Die Casting Part Tolerances
- Die Casting Part Specifications
- Die Casting Tooling Types
- Additional Labor Needs
- Die Casting Part Secondary Finishing
- Other Fees
The die casting part size and weight effect the part price in a few ways, cycle times or parts per hour, the machine tonnage size required to produce the parts and the part material cost, which also relates to the die casting material type.
The inspection requirements can vary depending on if a (1) visual inspection, or a (2) dimensional inspection or a (3) penetration inspection or an (4) X-Ray inspection or a (5) pressure test inspection are required.
The part quantity has an effect because it will determine if some of the many “one time” or “minimum charge” fees are covered in the production lot.
Die casting part specifications and tolerances add additional labor to a simple casting through inspection and documentation.
The die casting tool can effect the part price by how many cavities are in the tool, how many slides are in the tool, whether additional labor can be removed by the tool, and also if a trim die is available. The mold type also has an effect in the set up time for tooling.
Many times additional labor are needed to complete the die casting part, like threading holes, which also adds to the part cost. Can we use high speed production machining or do we need to use CNC machines.
If there is a polish, ball burnish, bead blast, paint or anodize requirement, that will add to the part cost.
Other fees, some die casting companies charge a “Set Up Fees” or an “Environmental Fees” or an “Energy Surcharge Fees” or a packaging or pallet fee, we do not have any of these hidden fees.
