Graphite Permanent Mold
This form of casting works best with zinc-aluminum (ZA) alloy, ZA12. The graphite permanent mold process offers superior design flexibility over traditional forms of casting. ZA coupled with permanent mold provides cast-to-size accuracy that can greatly reduce or entirely eliminate machining and secondary operations. It is the preferred choice over die casting because of lower quantities and lower tooling costs.
The most common casting process available today. A preferable choice for low volume production or few castings, but is suitable for any quantity, even for very high production using automatic molding equipment. Tolerance capabilities are limited, therefore secondary machining is usually required.
