A Revolution in Custom Zinc Die Casting
A revolution is beginning in custom zinc die casting and CRECOCAST, Seville, Ohio is on the cutting edge of the innovative changes. Engineering terminology and capabilities including net shape, flash free, minimum tolerances, thin walls, and cost efficiencies are already common terms in CRECO's vocabulary. Effective casting with newer alloys such as ZA-8 bring added feasibility to decisions. Finished parts are supplied with component required exactness.
State of the Art Four Slide Precision Technology
Four slide crosshead allows core pull movements to be economically incorporated into complex dies. The integrated hydraulic system provides consistent clamping pressure, fastest cycle speeds and highest quality.
- precise, close dimensional tolerances
- thin wall construction
- opportunity to incorporate multi-part items into a single casting
- ability to produce small cored holes, minimum side wall draft
- long lasting, low maintenance dies
- proven for all styles and applications: threaded, bayonet, plain
- eliminates secondary operations
- inexpensive and readily available
- ideally suited to electronic components
- excellent EMI/RFI shielding characteristics
- easily plated/superior finish/highly aesthetic
- stronger, stiffer, tougher than many conventional materials
- several alloys to choose from, application specific
