Die casting is the art of molding raw metal pieces to fit specific dimensions. The manufacturing process is flexible and versatile enough that the final product can be of any size, shape, or texture. The process of die casting has a number of moving parts that need to function perfectly to produce the final product. Understanding how flow meters, molds, and metals come together in die casting can give everyone a better appreciation of the industry and its role in the world.
The end of 2017 is closing in on us, and with it comes the time to verify and improve your ChemTec products performance before the New Year. To help you through this process, we’re going to offer up a few tips to make the most of your annual maintenance this year.
