Quality Service You Can Trust
Driven by our steadfast goal of achieving perfect quality in every project, we have invested time, effort, and expertise into our processes. This commitment means we can deliver bespoke metal manufacturing solutions that meet the unique needs and standards of any industry, no matter how high its demands or specific its requirements.
Metal die-casting is the process in which molten metal is poured or forced into steel moulds. Moulds (known as the tools or dies) are created from steel and specifically designed for each project, ensuring each component to be created with accuracy and repeatability.
Just like one solution doesn’t fit every client, there isn’t a single process that suits every project. Which is why at Sourceman we offer multiple solutions for all your die-casting needs. To provide custom-built solutions for our clients, we use three different types of die casting processes: Hot chamber, cold-chamber and injected metal assembly.
Hot-Chamber – This method is used for zinc and other low-melting metals and is beneficial for alloys that don’t easily erode metal pods, cylinder and plungers.
Cold-Chamber – We use this method for those metals with high-melting points such as aluminium, where metal is liquefied and ladled into a cold chamber where a hydraulically operated plunger pushes the metal into the die.
Injected Metal Assembly – This method outperforms most adhesives used for small component joining and assembly production, reducing manufacturing costs.
