Zinc Advantages: Engineering in Zinc

More and more die casters are turning to zinc die casting due to all the advantages zinc offers while engineering the metal and alloys. There are multiple advantages to engineering in zinc. The different alloys in the metal zinc benefit in the zinc advantages when die casting the metal.

Below are some of the zinc advantages when die casting the metal:

  • Zinc solidifies quickly when in the process of die casting which results in a very short cycle time of making parts. That results in lesser amounts of energy and money being used while die casting zinc.
  • Zinc has a longer tool life than any other die casting alloy.
  • Zinc parts are typically the strongest and hardest of all die casting alloys.
  • Zinc is highly conductive and highly accurate when processing and finishing the parts.

There are many more zinc advantages that come along with engineering in the metal zinc. To learn more about engineering in zinc, check out this video below that walks you through why zinc is the best metal to use in die casting.
