MACHINING OR DIE CASTING: HOW TO CHOOSE?

Die casting and machining both produce high quality parts, but depending on your project's specifications, it may make sense to use one process more than the other.

  • "When it comes to new and innovative products, we never hesitate to give Fred at Simalex a call. We had a concept, and Simalex had the solution. Simalex custom manufactures our new ATV Superclamp tie down system. We couldn’t be happier with the quality and consistency of the castings produced by Simalex."

  • "Simalex Manufacturing has been making die cast parts for my company for more than 15 years. They use all of their industry expertise to design and help us get the best parts at the best value. They take our products from the concept phase to the design of tooling stage, and then die cast the finished products. They always ship our parts on time. Simalex is rated high in our supply chain."

  • "Simalex Manufacturing has been an easy company to work with. I had a great experience dealing with them through the initial stages of product development. We sent them a railing piece that we were machining out of an aluminum extrusion and welding together. They partnered up with us in order to model the piece to our specifications and recommended the best approach to making it feasible for die casting. Simalex has been a great company to work with and provides the level of service and communication you need in the manufacturing industry. I would recommend Simalex to any other company who could use their services."
