Die castingDie casting is a metal casting process characterized by the use of mold cavities to apply high pressure to the molten metal. The mold is usually made of a stronger alloy. This process is somewhat similar to injection molding. Most die-casting castings are iron-free, such as zinc, copper, aluminum, magnesium, lead, tin, and tin-lead alloys and their alloys. Depending on the type of die-casting, a cold chamber die casting machine or hot chamber die casting machine is required.

ForgingForging, is a kind of forging press (forging and stamping) of one of the two major components of forgings that use a forging machine to apply pressure to a metal blank to produce plastic deformation to obtain a forging with certain mechanical properties, a certain shape and size. The forging can eliminate the defects such as loosening of the as-cast state of the metal in the smelting process, optimize the microstructure structure, and at the same time preserve the complete metal flow line, the mechanical properties of the forging are generally better than those of the same material. Among the relevant machinery, important parts with high loads and severe working conditions are often forged except for the relatively simple shape of available rolled plates, sections or welding parts.
