Zinc offers a combination of characteristics that give it a unique advantage in many die casting applications. These include a combination of strength, ductility, resistance to catastrophic failure, impact strength and finishing characteristics.
Zinc is the heaviest of the three alloy groups our die casting company offers, weighing approximately 2.5 times more than aluminum and 3.25 times more than magnesium. Further, zinc tools typically last between 700,000 and 900,000 shots depending on the design. With all of these factors and the finishing advantages of zinc, it’s easy to see why this is a metal of choice for many applications.
We offer a variety of zinc die casting approaches that range from the ability to produce small, miniature zinc die castings to larger, conventional castings. As a leading zinc die casting manufacturer, Pace has two divisions that offer die casting zinc. Our B&C Division, located in Harrison, AR, has Techmire machines for miniature zinc die castings, as well as conventional zinc die casting machines ranging from 60 to 500 tons. The Cambridge Division, located in North Billerica, MA, offers die casting machines ranging from 250 to 650 tons. Both of our zinc die casting divisions offer an array of secondary and value-added services to provide completely finished and assembled products.
