Gravity casting is a casting process used for non-ferrous alloy parts. Also, we called Permanent Mould, the process is typically used on aluminum and zinc.
There are many advantages to gravity castings. It offers good dimensional accuracy, a smoother cast surface finish than sand casting, and improved mechanical properties compared to sand casting. Gravity castings also provide faster production times compared to the other processes. Besides, the mold/tooling cost is much cheaper than Die Casting, it is approximate only 30% cost compare to die casting tooling.
Our company has ourselves engineers team to design gravity casting tooling and have an internal tooling workshop to machining the tooling/mold, which will greatly help clients to improve the casting quality, shorten the 1st article sample approval time and save the tooling cost.
