Zinc Die Casting

Zinc die casting is widely favored for its exceptional characteristics, making it an ideal choice for manufacturing intricate and high-precision components. The process allows for complex shapes and thin walls, providing designers and engineers with the freedom to create innovative products. Furthermore, zinc’s excellent casting fluidity ensures intricate details are accurately reproduced, while its corrosion resistance enhances the longevity and durability of the final components.


BIAN DIECAST Zinc die casting/Zinc alloy cast is a die process by using hot chamber machines to inject or shot Zinc materials like zinc#3-5 hot molten metal into shot chamber. As the injection plunger rises, a port in the feed system opens and hot molten metal fills the cylinder. The plunger then moves down, sealing the port and forcing the molten metal through the gooseneck and into the die cavity. After the zinc solidifies, the plunger retracts and the casting is ejected.then we get the product just half finished, later we will get rid of all the Metal Saver,polishing or ultrasonic cleaning,then painting or spraying it to make the last step finished.


The product characteristics of zinc alloy die castings are as follows:

1. Worklife, hardness, texture and strength are much better compared with plastic injection molding.

2. It has good casting performance. It can die cast precision parts with complex shape and thin wall, and the casting surface is smooth.

3. Surface treatment: electroplating, spraying and painting.

4. In the process of smelting and die-casting, there is no iron absorption, corrosion forming, and mold sticking.

5. It has good mechanical properties and wear resistance at room temperature.

6. Low melting point, melting point 385 ℃, easier to form than aluminum alloy die casting.

7. Zinc alloy has a strong three-dimensional sense. There will be grain or wrinkle on the surface after die casting, which needs polishing. Grinding cannot completely change the physical form.

8. Zinc alloy handicrafts and relief patterns are vivid and widely used, but require a high level of technology, with a small amount of indentation or burr on the surface.


What are the differences between zinc alloy die casting and aluminum alloy die casting?


There are many die-casting processes in die-casting manufacturers, of which zinc alloy die-casting and aluminum alloy die-casting take almost 80% of the market. Zinc alloy in zinc alloy die-casting is an alloy based on zinc and added with other elements.


Commonly added alloy elements include aluminum, copper, magnesium, cadmium, lead, titanium and other low-temperature zinc alloys. Compared to Aluminum cast, Zinc alloy has low melting point, good fluidity, easy fusion welding, brazing and plastic processing, corrosion resistance in the atmosphere, and easy recovery and remelting of residual waste; However, the creep strength is low and the size change is easily caused by natural aging. Prepared by melting method, die-casting or pressure processing.


According to the manufacturing process, it can be divided into cast zinc alloy and deformed zinc alloy. It can be used for die-casting instruments, automobile parts, electric pole surface galvanizing and anti-corrosion, boiler water wall pipe hot-dip galvanizing to improve high-temperature corrosion resistance, etc.



Zinc die casting has become a preferred choice for manufacturing intricate and high-precision components across various industries. As a cost-effective and versatile process, it allows for the creation of complex shapes and thin-walled parts with exceptional dimensional accuracy. The process involves injecting molten zinc into dies under high pressure, resulting in sturdy and precise components that meet stringent quality standards.
