Zinc Die Cast Valve Body

The DECO Advantage

The Deco Advantage guide serves to help designers and material specifiers to better understand the capabilities of zinc casting alloys for product applications. What is the Deco Advantage? Zinc casting alloys are versatile engineering materials. As a result, no other alloy system provides the combination of strength, toughness, rigidity, bearing performance, and economical castability. Listed are zinc alloy attributes which…

Thermal Image of Zinc Die Cast Tool

Thermal Imaging

Deco has recently purchased a new Fluke Ti Series Thermal Camera. With this camera we will use thermal imaging information to maintain specific die temperatures. Obtaining a specific die temperature can be critical in casting a good quality part. However, this ideal die temperature can be hard to achieve due to variability in production. Prior…

Zinc Die Cast Mold Flow Simulation

Mold Flow Simulation Modeling

Mold flow simulation is a great way for Deco engineers to understand what zinc alloys are going to do in a die cast mold before the zinc is cast. One of the great mysteries of die casting is, “What is happening inside the mold?” First of all, within a few milliseconds, a rush of molten…
