High Pressure Die Casting: Is It Right For Your Part?
High Pressure Die Casting: Is It Right For Your Part?

Is High Pressure Die Casting right for your part?  This webinar discusses what factors and considerations go into qualifying a part for the high pressure die casting process.  

What are your requirements for the project?  Chicago White Metal presents an in-depth summary of what to consider when selecting a manufacturing process.  Final geometry, additional post-cast processes, application, cost, timelines and several other factors go into the final decision, also considering a conversion from another process.  

Presented by Jon Miller (VP, Sales & Marketing) and the CWM Engineering Project Management Team.  48 minutes.

Value Added Operations & Die Casting
Value Added Operations & Die Casting

Incorporating machining, assembly and other options into a die casting can result in significant savings, especially when all services are in-house. These additional processes can be applied to die castings in order to give them their final geometry, function or appearance. These services are called VALUE ADDED PROCESSES. This webinar discusses machining, finishing, assembly and other value added processes that turn die castings into fully finished components, sub-assemblies or finished products. 48 minutes.
