4 Reasons to Turn to DMLS Before Die Casting | PDDnet

Die casting turns out hundreds to thousands of well-finished parts a day which require very little post-processing – critical for huge production volumes. "DMLS can complement or enhance your die cast project through four key applications: Prototyping production quality metal parts; Die cast tooling inserts; Bridge to production; and DMLS as an economical low volume production solution.However creating the tooling for die cast parts requires a significant upfront cost, both for the hard steel tool itself and for the dedicated time to make the tool. Therefore, when moving into tooling for die casting, having a perfect design is key to avoid a defective tool and therefore product. To verify design and product viability before moving into tooling while still benefiting from the same aluminum alloy, we recommend Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) 3D printing.
