Designing in Cast Aluminum
There are many advantages to designing with cast aluminum materials. They are versatile and cost effective and can be put into production quickly. Complex parts can be cast at a significantly lower cost than machining. Multiple parts that would have to be machined separately and assembled can often be molded and cast as a single unit, increasing the structural integrity of the unit and reducing its cost. Even large parts that would otherwise be impossible to produce can be cast using aluminum materials.
Aluminum castings have unique physical properties and performance characteristics not found in other materials. Cast aluminum components have high strength to weight ratio, excellent corrosion resistance, high impact resistance and are non-magnetic. They perform well at both high and low temperatures.
