Pedeo is a development partner and reliable supplier of finished and assembled high-pressure die cast products in zinc and aluminium alloys. With our creative full-service approach and our ready accessibility, we are able to establish a successful partnership quickly.
Both aluminium and zinc are ideally suitable as the base materials for sustainable products because of their:
large natural stocks of ores of both materials.
“near net shape” design possibilities of the high pressure die casting technique.
all the alloys we use meet the standards of RoHS, REACH and ELV.
High pressure die casting
The die casting process consists in injecting molten metal at high speed and under high pressure in a high grade mould. Filling times are 10 to 50 milliseconds. The gate speed of the metal is 20 to 40 m/sec. Specific pressures on the metal are 200-500 bar for zinc alloys and 400-1000 bar for aluminium alloys. The temperature is 425°C for zinc alloys and 670°C for aluminium alloys. Die casting machines and peripheral equipment are completely automated and the process parameters are controlled.
