    Die casting parts cost Description

    Alloy die casting parts services is a precision casting method that uses high pressure to forcibly melt metal alloys into a metal mold with complex shapes. Most die casting parts are iron-free, such as zinc, copper, aluminum, magnesium, lead, tin, and lead-tin alloys and their alloys.

    The manufacturing of metal die casting parts has been widely used in many industries. High-efficiency manufacturing and high-precision alloy die casting parts are the key to low-cost products. A higher investment in a set of die casting parts molds can obtain hundreds of low-cost high-quality alloys. Die casting parts are very cost-effective for manufacturing companies.

    In this article, the team of Mulan MFG will analyze the calculation method of metal die casting parts cost for you, understand the calculation level, items and methods of the cost of non-ferrous die casting parts, and better look for competitive alloy die casting parts manufacturers in China, and Help you negotiate costs.

    composition of customized die casting parts Cost 

    Among Chinese die casting parts manufacturers, the method of itemized accounting is usually adopted to show more accurate and reasonable cost calculations in the form of centralized quotation.
    If you plan to carry out a project of custom alloy die casting parts, please pay attention to this formula:

    Holding down of the die casting parts cost

    The formula for calculating of die casting parts cost.

    These costs are very critical, and each item carries a high quality risk. In other words, these steps are the key to the manufacture of die casting parts.

    Many die casting parts manufacturers offer high prices because they take these core steps. This very good, do not hesitate to increase its own cost, strictly follow the quality system to ensure the high quality of the product.

    die casting parts Processing cost

    Mulan MFG’s professional die casting parts manufacturing team recommends that if the budget is sufficient, please do not over-save these processing costs, because these steps are essential in the parts manufacturing process.
    If these die casting parts cost are reduced indefinitely, manufacturers may cut corners to balance costs and ensure their own profits, resulting in a large number of defective products, affecting your product delivery, and causing a huge impact.

    - Die casting parts mold clamping cost

    The structure of the die casting parts mold is generally divided into two parts: a movable mold and a fixed mold. Two cavities are formed. When combined, a complete product cavity is formed. The metal solution is injected into the cavity through high pressure. After cooling, we get For die-casting parts that match the cavity, different products use different die-casting equipment, and the locking force of the mold is different, so the costs incurred in the die casting parts process are also different.
    Generally speaking, according to different pressures, there will be a stepped die casting parts clamping cost, and different materials will also affect the die casting parts clamping cost, but the difference is very small.

    - Die casting parts cost - smelting

    In the manufacturing process of die casting parts, the metal raw materials need to be melted so that the metal solution can be injected into the mold cavity. Different materials and melting methods will affect the cost.
    The process of melting the raw materials of die casting parts is one of the most critical issues. Mulan MFG’s professional die casting parts manufacturing team can solve quality problems such as pores, hard spots, and stable chemical composition through high-quality alloy melting technology. Strictly follow the GB/T8733 standard for concentrated melting of high-quality metal ingots. Refining, degassing, slagging, etc. should be done well to prevent excessive product impurities from affecting the quality of die casting parts.
    Mulan MFG has advanced alloy die casting parts manufacturing production lines, generally graphite crucibles and cast iron crucibles are used in resistance furnaces, induction furnaces, and natural gas furnaces.

    - The price increase of the complex parts of die casting parts

    In response to this problem, many customers do not understand why there is an increase in the price of complex parts when the parts quotation is suppressed, and in many cases these price increases seem to have no reason, just like imagination.

    Would the die-casting parts manufacturer offer such a price? Will this not make customers lose their sense of trust? Wouldn’t it let competitors take away customers with low prices?

    What the Mulan MFG team wants to tell customers is that this is a very interesting thing, and it is a very reasonable and unavoidable reason.
    Because technically superior die-casting parts manufacturers will evaluate the structure and production details of the product during the quotation process, and design a reasonable mold design.

    Generally, the price increase of complex parts is caused by the complex structure of the mold that requires one or more sliders. The mold requires a wealth of technical experience. The increase in the price of complex parts can prove that the die-casting parts manufacturer has fully evaluated the product, and the rich experience has formulated a quality disposal plan, and is confident that it can complete the manufacturing of the parts. You know, these own technical analysis processes cannot be done by small companies or new-born factories.

    Therefore, if your supplier proposes a price increase for complex parts, please analyze the rationality and seek reasons. This means that your manufacturer has analyzed and studied your product well and made a disposal plan in advance.

    - Special requirements for die casting parts

    There are a lot of special requirements when applying die-casting parts in many industries, and each industry is different, and manufacturers are also full of challenges. They fully consider the customer’s product needs and provide reasonable solutions before signing the contract. It is the basic condition for a high-quality manufacturer.

    It is necessary to rationally analyze the necessity of requirements and eliminate manufacturers who are unable to solve these complex special requirements for you. After all, some industry-leading technology manufacturers treat special requirements from different perspectives.

    Mulan MFG has focused on the manufacture of metal die-casting parts for more than 18 years. Advanced equipment and rich technical experience allow us to provide customers with a complete one-stop customized die-casting parts service, including: tightness, surface smoothness, material density, material type , Pressure parts, stress parts, decorative surfaces and other specific requirements.

    Generally speaking, the price increase for special requirements is a 30% increase in the cost of mold clamping as a reference.

    Calculation method of material cost of die casting parts

    The chemical composition and physical properties of our die-casting parts can meet GB/T9438-1999, JISH5202-1999, ASTMB108-03a, GB/T15115-1994, JISH5302-2006, ASTMB85-03, EN1706-1998 and other standards.

    Die casting material price = material unit price × material consumption quota + management fee and profit.
    Loss rate: copper alloy castings 7%, aluminum alloy castings 5%, zinc alloy castings 6%, magnesium alloy castings 3%.

    Calculation of defective product rate of die casting parts.

    Generally, manufacturers will budget the defective product rate at 5%-10%, and carry out over-budget production in advance to prevent insufficient product quantities.

    other expenses for die-casting parts manufacturers

    - Operating costs

    5% Manage the production process, monitor the quality inspection process, the loss of tools, packaging materials and all expenses.
