A380 is the most popular metal choice for aluminum die casting.
Because it offers the best combination of mechanical and physical
properties, A380 provides several advantages:
Retain high dimensional stability with thin walls and complex shapes
Good mechanical properties
High thermal and electrical conductivity
High strength—even at high temperatures

With 10 aluminum casting machines, ranging from 300 to 800 tons of
locking force, CWM can produce parts in a range of sizes from 0.75′ x
0.75″ to 18” x 18″.
Aluminum die casting is used frequently in the automotive industry,
as a durable, lightweight alternative to steel and iron. Its electrical
and thermal conductivity properties make it well suited for the
telecommunications and computer industries. And, its dimensional
stability and mechanical properties make aluminum the metal of choice
for a wide variety of industries and their parts.
