High Pressure Diecastings (HPDCs)
What Is High Pressure Diecasting?
High Pressure Diecastings (HPDCs) are light-weight alternative components made from forcing molten metals into a mold at high speed and pressure. Casting molten metals allows for once multi-piece, welded-together structures to now be singular, aluminum castings – performing the same task with less mass and variability.
Manufacturers have adopted these components for their added value of:
- High-volume, high-tolerance, high-strength components
- Flexibility for creating complex shapes – particularly in the automotive and aerospace sectors
- Light-weight capabilities – enabling more compact, fuel-efficient vehicles
- Advancing engine design and sophisticated vehicle construction
High Pressure Diecastings are now commonly used within:
- Key body structures – pillars, shock towers, floor and rear rails
- Complex shapes
- Chassis structures – engine cradles, suspension links
Can-Eng’s custom BHTS systems provide superior products with predictable mechanical properties and dimensional stability
