Miniature Zinc Die Casting

Miniature and sub-miniature zinc die casting is a precision fabricating process offering design flexibility, complex geometries, enhanced material properties, precision, and cost-effective production. The process is especially effective as a replacement for machined parts, stamping and assembly.

Along with its zinc die casting capabilities, MCC also offers:

  • In-house secondaries (tapping, secondary machining)
  • Finishing (plating paint and powder coat)
  • Assembly
  • Kitting
  • Specialty Packaging

Design Advantage

MCC, with its four-slide and conventional die casting machines, produces complex components with tight tolerances. Tolerances of +/- .002″ are routinely held, and in certain applications, +/- .0005″. This level of accuracy is consistent and repeatable over the entire life of the part. MCC’s mature ISO quality system provides customers with product that meets or exceeds requirements by utilizing FMEA’s, PPAP’s, SPC and Continuous Improvement.

  • Low component costs
  • Lower assembly costs
  • Tight, dimensional tolerances
  • Complex shapes and geometries
  • Thin wall sections
  • High mechanical properties
  • Good physical properties
  • Excellent surface quality
