Customer Collaboration on Zinc Part Design

At Deco Products we have an immense amount of experience. In both part design and its subsequent production to ultimately provide optimal lost. Customer collaboration on zinc part design is crucial in design for manufacturability and ensuring that the final product meets its requirements and expectations. 

 Early involvement allows our engineers to collaborate directly with our customers. Our engineer’s involvement early in the process helps optimize the design for manufacturability resulting in more efficient and cost-effective production and initial tooling costs.  


Engineers and Customer collaboration on zinc part design

As a material, zinc has a quality feel. The feeling of grabbing something and feeling some weight is appealing, as it represents high strength and a premium product.

At Deco Products, we have graduate engineers who collaborate with our customers on their zinc part design projects. Ensuring that the final product meets their specific requirements and expectations. Our team utilizes analysis software to optimize the design for manufacturability and ensures the highest quality and durability.

This analysis helps make sure our parts are of the highest casting quality with great material flow and minimized porosity. We use the latest software to ensure our design is both aesthetically pleasing and structurally sound.

Deco Engineering Is Here for Our Customers

“We understand that most of our customers are not familiar with zinc diecasting and the process, and so there are certain design elements that we’d be glad to help you with.” Mike Murphy, Engineer Manager

Collaboration on the application side is helpful to get our customers’ applications into a manufactured product.

By simulating what is happening inside the mold, we speed up the design iterations and process to create the most manufacturable part. This helps us reduce costs and time-to-market. It also allows us to be more flexible in our design and production processes. Finally, it allows us to ensure that our customers are getting the best immediate and long-term value over the entire life cycle of the product.


Zinc Part Design Conclusion

At Deco Products communication is why we succeed at collaborating with our customers. Throughout the entire manufacturing process, our Deco engineers work with our customers to ensure their zinc die cast parts will be of the utmost quality and that the tooling involved is designed with stability and longevity in mind.

Utilizing processes such as mold flow simulation allows our engineers to show our customers how the zinc will be cast into the mold. We understand that many of our customers are not experts in zinc die casting.

Our goal is to provide customers with adequate information and effective communication about the zinc die cast part so that they can collaborate with us on the project right now and on the many more projects to come.

Customer Collaboration on Zinc Part Design Transcript:

[00:00:00.000] – Jim Myers

Zinc got a heavier feel to it. A lot of people like that when they grab a hold of something, some merchandise, and you got some weight there with it. You got the feel of quality. Here at Deco products, we have graduate engineers from college who are available to help assist. And we have a finite element analysis, flow software, available right here in-house to help.


[00:00:32.310] – Dave Magner

Deco products has an immense amount of experience for both part design and then taking that part to be more manufacturable and ultimately a lower cost. We like to be involved with projects early on, so our engineers can contact you directly, either through the phone, through a web share like go-to meeting, or even in person. By being involved early in the process allows us to help avoid maybe potential manufacturing pitfalls and added cost that could result when the design is finalized.


[00:01:06.380] – Mike Murphy

Deco engineering is here for our customers. We understand that most of our customers are not familiar with the Zinc die-casting and the process, and so there are certain design elements that we’d be glad to help you with. I appreciate that collaboration on the application side to take your application and get it into a manufacturable part. We also use mold flow simulation to simulate what’s happening inside the mold and to speed along the design iterations and process to create the best part for a manufacturability.
