Cast Inserts

In certain occasions, a die cast tool can be designed to incorporate dowels and other inserts. These inserts can be permanently cast into the finished part in order to avoid secondary assembly costs.

In certain occasions, a die cast tool can be designed to incorporate dowels and other inserts. In these instances, the die cast operator places the insert into the tool for each shot and the part is cast around it. This leaves the insert permanently in place within the part and eliminates the need for secondary assembly and or machining operations.
