Precision meets strength:
Gravity die casting casting by MKB

In the gravity die casting process, liquid metal is poured into a metal casting mould -
known as the mould - through an inlet gate.
The cavity of the mould is filled with liquid metal under the force of gravity alone.
This has several advantages:

  • Low cost per part relative to sand casting
  • Our precision gravity die casting produces similar tolerances to investment casting
  • Tooling costs are significantly lower than for pressure die-casting
  • Smooth surfaces and fine geometries with precision chill moulds
  • High casting capacity, depending on the part
  • Low porosity, high density casting

Various metals and alloys can be processed as gravity die castings - depending on
the desired requirements and area of application of the cast part.
