Process of Die Casting
Xometry works with partners with the latest die casting technology to deliver high quality, on-demand parts. Our typical tolerance accuracy ranges from ±0.0762 mm to ±0.127 mm for aluminium and zinc, depending on customer specifications.
Hot chamber casting, also referred to as gooseneck casting, is the most ubiquitous die casting process. In this process, the injection mechanism’s chamber is submerged in molten metal and the “gooseneck” metal supply structure guides the molten metal into the die cavity.
Cold chamber die casting is commonly employed to reduce machine corrosion. The liquified metal is loaded directly into the injection setup, removing the need to submerge the injection mechanism into the molten metal.

Die Casting Materials
Die casting materials play a pivotal role in manufacturing precision parts. They are typically metals and alloys, such as aluminium, zinc, and magnesium, chosen for their strength, durability, and suitability for specific applications. Here is the list of materials offered at Xometry Türkiye.
- Aluminum 46100 / ADC12 / A383 / Al-Si11Cu3
- Aluminum 46500 / A380 / Al-Si8Cu3
Die Casting Fundamentals
For high-volume production of comparatively complex metal parts, die casting is the most suitable manufacturing process. Die cast parts are manufactured using steel moulds that resemble those utilized in injection moulding. Instead of plastics as used in injection moulding, die casting involves metals with low melting points such as zinc and aluminium. Die casting is a popular option due to its accuracy, reliability, repeatability, and versatility.
In the die casting process, high pneumatic pressure or hydraulic pressure forces molten metal into a steel mould or die. These moulds and dies can produce metal parts with complex geometries. The die casting process produces most of the metal parts involved in all casting processes.
