What is gravity die casting?

For gravity die casting, a steel mould is used. This mould consists of two halves that are pressed together. A ladle is used to pour liquid aluminium into the mould from above. Once the aluminium has set and the casting has cooled down sufficiently, it can be removed from the metal mould. This casting method is used to produce small to medium-sized series. Gravity die casting is suitable for castings between 25 g and 10 kg.

Where is the product casted?

The gravity die casting process is performed at our our aluminium foundries in China and India. At these foundries, we have dozens of hydraulically operated machines, casting carousels for semi-automatic casting and tiltable machines used for the production of complex castings. Our aluminium foundries are ISO 9001:2015, IATF 16949:2016 and ISO 14001:2015 certified to guarantee the quality of our castings and offer our clients the assurance they want.

The benefits of gravity die casting

Gravity die casting offers various advantages. We have listed the key benefits below:

  • This casting method is highly suitable for the production of small to medium-sized series of products
  • This casting method has lower mould costs than aluminium high pressure die casting
  • This casting method has lower production costs than sand casting
  • It is possible to use sand cores or inserts such as bearing seats and mounting materials
  • Castings with excellent mechanical properties
  • Gravity die castings are pressure-tight

"As a result of the excellent collaboration and technical support from Perla AluCast, we successfully introduced a casting product to replace a welded assembly and, by doing so, realised a significant cost reduction."

We will think along with you throughout the entire casting process

With our extensive experience, we at Perla AluCast know exactly what you need during the development and production of aluminium castings. We can assist you at every stage of the the casting process Compared to other aluminium foundries, we go the extra mile.

During the design process

After you submit your request, we will evaluate the 3D design of your casting together. We will advise you on how to optimise the casting's design for production. This helps to minimise the risks during production and will lead to a better - and often cheaper - end product. If your casting forms part of a larger product, we will make the component easier and faster to assemble. 

During the production process

Before we begin the gravity die casting process, we will create a product file and draw up a planning. Next, we will begin production of the mould. We perform interim inspections at various stages during production. Before shipping the castings to you, we will perform a final inspection with the help of the product file.

After the production process

Once the production process is complete and the final inspection has been performed, it is time to ship the aluminium castings to you. If necessary, we can use e.g. CNC processing, tumbling, blasting, technical anodising, wet painting, powder coating or heat treatment to finish and strengthen the castings.
