Die Casting

San Jose Die Casting has die casting machines that vary from 150-850 tons. We have both cold and hot chamber die casting machines
for Zinc and Aluminum. We cast parts that weigh a few ounces to ones that weigh 35 pounds. Our die casting machines are able to
produce thin walled castings, deep heat sinks and achieve as cast parts with features on all sides with no machining to obtain
significant savings in cost. Since our engineers work very closely with tool makers we are able to give very short lead times and assure
that the product is to the highest quality. Our Fondarex advanced vacuum unit allows our castings to be virtually porosity free to assure
the highest caliber parts.  This vacuum process allows us to produce parts with thinner walls with excellent mechanical and thermal
properties approaching A6061.
