Are you strategically placing your parting line?

Sep 21, 2017

How much thought are you giving to the placement of your parting line for Die Cast parts?

'The parting line of a die cast component represents where the two different sides of the mold come together. This line often (but not always) marks the border between the inside and outside of the part'

Poorly located parting lines can create many problems - cosmetic, functionality, tool life, production costs and so on.

This article from the North America Die Cast Association touches on the importance of this:
