A Designer Overview to Zinc Alloy Die Casting 871954

The classical use for zinc alloy die castings for plated trim and non-structural applications is being supplemented with new engineered applications. New alloys such as ZA-27 offer higher strengths than #3, which when combined with cost effective, net shape capability of the die casting process provide new opportunities in automotive component design. A systematic design strategy must, however, become part of the product design process. This strategy, by evaluating mechanical and physical properties of the material against use requirements, offers the best methodology for new and replacement applications.
