Advantages of Using Die Casting over Sand Casting

Advantages and benefits of selecting the Die Casting over Sand Casting (Sand Molded Casting) process are given as under.

  1. For die casting process require less floor space in comparison to the sand casting process.
  2. Die-cast helps in providing precision dimensional control with a subsequent reduction in machining cost.
  3. Die casting provides a greater improved surface finish compared to sand casting.
  4. Thin sections of complex shapes can be produced efficiently using the die casting process.
  5. The more true shape can be created with close tolerance in die casting.
  6. Casting shapes produced by die casting are usually very less defective.
  7. Using die-casting process parts can be produced very quickly.
  8. It produces more sound casting than sand casting.
  9. Its rate of production is high as 800 casting/hour.
