Our 58 presses range in size from 100 ton to 1000 ton, producing zinc alloy die casting components for low and high volume production programs. PHB provides zinc hot chamber die casting, aluminum-zinc hot or cold chamber high pressure die casting, as well as aluminum die casting. Process monitoring, press side imaging, robotics, MAGMAsoft® flow simulation, perpetual tooling, and tool maintenance programs are utilized to extend tool life, reduce cycle times, reduce costs, and provide high quality die castings. From part conception and thorough prototyping to assembling finished production, PHB can provide, under one central umbrella, the integrated services required to be your complete global manufacturing resource. Learn more about zinc die cast manufacturing.
Zinc alloys are the easiest to high pressure diecast. They offer high ductility, impact strength, and can be easily plated. Zinc alloys have a lower melting point than aluminum which can assist in promoting longer die life.
ZA alloys are zinc-based die casting materials that have a higher aluminum content than standard zinc alloys. These alloys provide high strength characteristics as well as high hardness and good bearing properties.
PHB uses the internationally recognized MAGMAsoft® simulation technology to optimize tool design and zinc casting quality.
MAGMAsoft® simulation capabilities provide a better understanding of zinc injection mold filling, solidification, mechanical properties, thermal stresses and distortions, and much more. Fully menu-driven with an integrated solid modeler, CASD interfaces, and extensive databases, MAGMAsoft® provides a complete solution for design, production, and quality departments.
