The Die Casting Design Resource

Welcome to NADCA Design...

the resource for designing an optimized die cast product

The information needed to develop, design, and manufacture a die cast product is available here. The first section of the menu contains new video modules covering many design and purchasing related topics.  Feel free to view all the modules in the logical order presented or go directly to the module you need right now, using the menu to the left.

In addition to the new video modules, all NADCA's extremely useful legacy design and purchasing resources are still available through the lower part of the menu including:

  • Product Specification Standards for Die Castings
  • Commercial Practices and Checklists
  • White Papers, Bulletins, and Case Studies
  • Die Caster Database
  • Design books and software

Die casting is a versatile process for producing engineered metal parts by forcing molten metal under high pressure into reusable steel molds.  These molds, called dies, can be designed to produce complex shapes with a high degree of accuracy and repeatability.  Parts can be sharply defined, with smooth or textured surfaces, and are suitable for a wide variety of attractive and serviceable finishes.

Die castings are among the highest volume, mass produced items manufactured by the metalcasting industry, and they can be found in thousands of consumer, commercial and industrial products.  Die cast parts are important components of products ranging from aircraft to toys.  Die cast parts can be as basic as a door handle or as complex as a transmission housing.
