Rangers Casting Parts With Aluminum

Your engineered metal parts benefit from the versatility and quality that result from aluminum die casting. This process involves pouring molten aluminum into steel molds or dies. We design these dies to produce the complex shapes you require with a high degree of accuracy and repeatability. The steel dies can be reused to further assure repeatability.

Aluminum die casting is an excellent choice whether your die cast aluminum parts require sharply defined shapes with smooth or textured surfaces. Components produced by aluminum die casting are well-suited for a wide range of attractive finishes, such as anodizing and powder coating.

Aluminum die casting is an affordable solution for prototyping as well as for high volume, mass-produced manufactured items. Rangers Die Casting produces parts for many consumer, commercial and industrial end products.

According to the North American Die Casting Association (NADCA), the die casting process has evolved from the original low-pressure injection method of bygone years to techniques like our high-pressure casting — at forces exceeding 4500 pounds per square inch.

As a result, we can produce high integrity, near net-shape castings with excellent surface finishes. Rangers can produce castings in a variety of sizes, shapes and wall thicknesses that are strong, durable and dimensionally precise. Rangers Die Casting is an aluminum die casting company with over 65 years of experience!

How Dies Work for You

NADCA describes the die construction process as follows: “Dies, or die casting tooling, are made of alloy tool steels in at least two sections, the fixed die half, or cover half, and the ejector die half, to permit removal of castings. Modern dies also may have moveable slides, cores or other sections to produce holes, threads and other desired shapes in the casting. Sprue holes in the fixed die half allow molten metal to enter the die and fill the cavity. The ejector half usually contains the runners (passageways) and gates (inlets) that route molten metal to the cavity.

Dies also include locking pins to secure the two halves, ejector pins to help remove the cast part, and openings for coolant and lubricant. When the die casting machine closes, the two die halves are locked and held together by the machine's hydraulic pressure. The surface where the ejector and fixed halves of the die meet and lock is referred to as the 'die parting line.'"

No matter how simple or complex the part your design requires, Rangers Die Casting can produce it.
