Diecast refers to any number of products that utilize the die-casting molding method. The process involves two precision-machined molds [photo to the left] that come together under heavy pressure. A molten metal alloy is injected into the mold and within seconds the metal cools and the part is released from the mold.
Today most models are constructed of a mix of plastic, resin, and metal alloys. The combination of these materials produces the most accurately detailed products.
When we think of diecast it is often cars and trucks; however die-cast can include a variety of products:
- Transportation: Cars, Trucks, Boats & Airplanes
- Military Equipment & Weapons
- Construction Equipment
- Product Miniatures
- Industrial Equipment
