Aluminum Die Casting Company
An aluminum die casting manufacturer since 1982, Soldy has the experience and knowledge to produce the highest-quality aluminum products for a wide range of applications. To meet our customers’ growing demands, we now operate two plants — totaling 65,000 square feet — and run production across three shifts, five days a week.
High-Pressure Die Casting Process
We use a high-pressure die casting process in which molten metal is injected under pressure into the machine’s steel mold or die to form products. Aluminum requires the use of a cold chamber system for injecting the metal into the die. The molten metal is poured using a ladle into the cold shot cylinder, and a plunger (shot piston) forces the metal into the die quickly and at high pressure. The molten metal is held in place until it solidifies. Then, the plunger is retracted, the die opened and the casting removed, and the machine is ready for the next cycle.
High-pressure die casting is a relatively quick and inexpensive process. It generates products with accurate dimensions and smooth surfaces. These castings require very little machining — removing flash around the edges and drilling holes may be all that is necessary.
Benefits of Aluminum Die Casting
- Are lightweight yet offer very good strength, hardness and rigidity
- Withstand higher operating temperatures than any other die cast alloy
- Have corrosion resistance and EMI/RFI shielding properties
- Offer more surface finishing options than other die cast alloys
- Provide high thermal and electrical conductivity
- Are fully recyclable
Versatile aluminum castings used in many industries. Their relatively low weight and ability to withstand high-temperatures make aluminum ideal for the automotive, telecom, computing and electrical industries, to name a few.
Aluminum Die Casting Services
In addition to die casting, Soldy Manufacturing offers our customers a vast array of services to meet your project requirements. We can provide you with tool making, design and engineering, as well as secondary operations such as trimming, rotary tumbling, vibratory deburring, CNC machining, heat treating, shot blasting, plating, powder coating and assembly. With all those options, it’s no wonder that so many of our customers make Soldy their one-stop aluminum parts shop!
