Expertise in precision die casting, enabling the production of complex components.
Pressure die casting is a very powerful method of making net shape metal parts without machining, and proves crucial to the performance of the product. Getting both the deign and tool right first time is vital, as the tools are not easily modified. Therefore, any modification’s feasibility is subject to the constraints of injection pressure in the tool. Moreover, the process can be very cost-effective for complex forms and parts can be extensively post treated to provide cosmetic and high tolerance components for a range of industries.
At Goudsmit UK, we work closely with you to design and develop die casts that perfectly match your application requirements. As a trusted name and leading engineering component manufacturer, we supply parts to a wide range of industries. Our clients in the automotive, medical, aerospace and oil and gas sectors enjoy quality parts at competitive rates. Over 25 years of manufacturing experience translates to greater specialisation options, high production rates and increased component performance for you. Rest assured, you will always receive consistently high quality and value for money.
For customers that do not have full design capabilities, we can produce 3D models, 2D tolerance drawings, analysis of fit, addition of assembly features, draft angles, tool finish, and much more.
At the component level, our castings deliver the best performance and adhere to your tolerance specifications. The top 3 design considerations that help us achieve high quality output include:
With a thorough analysis in these areas, we can help you avoid cold welds, air pockets and cold castings. We can also ensure that any Finite Element Analysis (FEA) for mechanical strength is not undone by undetermined casting flaws.
Creating the perfect component starts with selecting the right material. Material choices for castings can be complex and some alloys may not be suitable for the desired shape. We can offer you both high and low-pressure casting options for the following common materials:
Material choices are complex and although designers choose alloys for their mechanical properties it should be remembered that these may not be suitable for casting into the desired shape.
We recommend that you contact us as early as possible to discuss the correct alloy choice for your application.
At Goudsmit UK, we can tailor our services to supply the finish you need on your product. The options include providing your parts as:
Shot blasting, bead blasting and vibratory tumbling are some techniques we employ to modify the finish post cast. We can also offer several high-quality surface finishes including:
Virtually all our post casting is done via CNC machining for enhanced repeatability.
