If you need to strengthen your components, diecasting is exactly what you need. The team at Lupton & Place are the experts when it comes to diecasting, specialising in pressure diecasting and gravity diecasting, but what’s the difference?

The process of the two is very similar, however, here’s how the processes differ slightly for gravity diecasting:

Pouring.

For gravity diecasting, the metal is poured vertically into the metal tool and no force is applied. This method ensures that there’s no gas trapped in the mould and can instantly improve production times.

The process of gravity casting is simple, the way in which the metal is poured will allow you to create unique products and add intricate detail to your products. As well as this, you’ll have the opportunity to prevent any leaks or folds in the metal.

Cost.

Gravity diecasting is far cheaper than aluminium diecasting, allowing you to enhance the quality of your products but also providing you with the opportunity to save money, when under tight budgetary requirements. Lupton & Place provide you with a cost-effective solution for tooling components and making them more consistent.

As far as low-cost tooling goes, gravity diecasting can save you money, while providing you with a smoother finish to your products.

Time.

Gravity diecasting is less time-consuming than any other form of diecasting, whether it’s pressure diecasting or aluminium diecasting. The gravity cast enables you to speed up the manufacturing process without compromising production.

If you’re looking to improve production times to meet tight deadlines, look no further than Lupton & Place’s extensive range of gravity diecasting!

Reliability.

The gravity cast is ideal for various applications, including the simplest of designs and even the most complex designs. Lupton & Place provide in-house tooling for a wide range of applications. The gravity cast can produce a variety of sizes to suit your requirements specifically.

Gravity diecasting can facilitate the most demanding applications for an array of industries

Strength.

In terms of strength and integrity, the aluminium diecasting and gravity diecasting can hold their own! Gravity diecasting enables you to produce products that are either sharply defined, smooth or textured, all without compromising strength.

Temperature range.

The casting temperature for gravity diecasting is 750°C which explains why it’s ideal for creating smoother finished products. The cooling effect can be accelerated by the thermal conductivity of the gravity cast!
