Die Casting is another popular metal casting process that is used in virtually every industry. Omnidex Mining has been using this process to produce precision castings with good surface finish to the satisfaction of many customers in the mining industry for many years. As an expert in Die Casting, we also provide Die Casting assembly and finishing services.
At Omnidex Mining, we use the latest software to simulate molten metal flow during the Die Casting process so we can highlight feed points and identify areas where improvements can be made. Our many years of experience allow us to produce top quality castings with optimum material specifications, highly accurate dimensions and tolerances, and impeccable surface finish (through detail final cleaning and specialized painting). We also use our expertise to guarantee clean sprue removal and keep waste to a minimum.
The modern Die Casting process involves the use of specialized Die Casting machines, which forces molten metal into a mold cavity with high pressure to form the required parts. This is a very efficient method that can produce identical parts at a very high production rate.

Here are the pros and cons of Die Casting:
It is best to use non-ferrous alloys as aluminium, magnesium, zinc, brass and copper alloys for die casting.
Lightweight, but they can withstand the highest operating temperatures of all alloys.
Extremely light yet durable but difficult to machine.
Easiest to die cast and is a good low-cost alternative to fabricating or machining parts.
Excellent resistance to corrosion and lower finishing costs.
Offers the highest mechanical properties compared to other die casting alloys. They are also resistant to corrosion and wear but they cost the most.
