If you produce prototypes with die-casting, you gain a number of benefits in comparison with other production methods:
- Quality as with production parts, i.e. mounting, mechanical tests, etc., can be performed
- Small tolerances
- Rapid tool changes
- Tool can be used for preseries of up to 15,000 shots
- Delivery time on casting mould is typically 3-4 weeks, depending upon how difficult the part is to cast
You can have preseries and 0 series produced in zinc soft tools or zinc mother moulds with inserts, enabling your start-up investment to be kept down without compromising the tolerances and quality of the zinc parts. Preseries can run from 50 to 10,000 parts, and the zinc casting moulds can also be used in the start-up phase of actual production, thus shortening the delivery time while at the same time writing off the investment for a larger production run. If adjustments need to be made, you can quickly made design changes to zinc casting moulds for preseries.
If it needs to go extremely quickly, Linimatic has a working relationship with Temponik A/S on the delivery of individual prototypes or very small cast series. This allows us to offer Tempocast, Tempotool and Tempoform, each of which have their own particular advantages depending upon the product's design and the size of the series.
