For over 10 years, Goudsmit UK have been manufacturing and supplying die castings to a range of industries. The knowledge and experience gained in that time means we can work closely with you to develop the die design and processing of your die cast products.

Die Casting - Fea & Design

DESIGN & FEA ANALYSIS

At a component level, we can produce a casting for you that not only performs at its best mechanically, but that also adheres to tolerance specifications and has a professional cosmetic finish.

Key considerations we consider during the design stage are:

Die fill

Mechanical performance

Ease of Casting

Thorough analysis in these areas will help to avoid cold welds, air pockets and cold castings. Furthermore, it’s important to evaluate that any pure FEA for mechanical strength is not undone by casting flaws which have not been predicted.

Die Casting Materials

MATERIALS & PRODUCTION

We can offer you both high and low pressure casting options for the following common materials:

Material choices for castings can be complex and so we would advise that you contact us as early as possible to discuss the correct alloy choice for your application.
