Gravity Die Casting employs cast iron or steel moulds which allow aluminium and zinc castings to be produced more accurately and cheaply than with sand casting, with better surface finish, and better mechanical properties.
Tooling costs of gravity casting are a fraction of those needed for pressure die casting. The rapid chilling gives excellent mechanical properties whilst non-turbulent filling ensures production of heat treatable gravity castings with minimal porosity.
ASIA also have facilities for producing sand cores to cast complex internal shapes.
