What is permanent mold casting?
Permanent mold casting, also referred to as gravity die casting, is a process that utilizes gravity to feed molten aluminum into a reusable mold or die. At LA Aluminum, we create both the molds and the resultant aluminum parts. Learn how we create molds and cast parts.
Permanent mold aluminum casting costs less, yet gives you more.
Many of our customers have converted a weldment or assembly originally constructed from iron or steel to a permanent mold aluminum casting. As a result, they’ve achieved the ultimate cost effective solution: a lighter weight, structurally sound casting that eliminates welding labor and assembly costs.
In some cases we are able to recommend design modifications that will increase productivity, enhance functionality of the part, or reduce mass and other changes that will reduce the cost to the client. View casting method comparison and permanent mold downloads.
