The gravity die-casting methods used at Fundo is primarily tilt- and low pressure die-casting, and in some cases common static gravity die-casting. In gravity die-casting a permanent mould in steel (die) is used and sand cores are used to form the inner and outer form in undercuts if necessary. Thanks to the rapid solidification gravity die-cast parts get a fine structure and if the filling of the cavity was controlled, also good physical properties that can be further improved by heat treatment.
- Can use sand cores
- Good mechanical properties
