Aluminum die casting has been around for many years. The practice can be traced all the way back to the 20th century. Die casting today, has been a versatile process for producing engineered metal parts by forcing molten metal under high pressure into steel molds. These molds can then be used to mass produce complex metal alloy components with a variety of surface styles and finishes. Castings are regularly used in many common products in a wide variety of applications: from decorative sculptures, jewelry to automotive and aircraft engine parts.
