Designing in Cast Aluminum

There are many advantages to designing with cast aluminum materials. They are versatile and cost effective and can go into production quickly. Complex parts can be cast at a significantly lower cost than machined hog outs or fabricated components. 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 alloys.

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.
