Commercial Practices for Die Casting Buyers
The guidelines and checklists in this document will help the development of proposals and contracts to provide die castings to specifications on prearranged quantity schedules at competitive levels on a continuing basis.
Die Casting Checklists
Checklist for Die Casting Die Specifications (T-2-1)
This two-part specification checklist is intended for use in consultation with your die caster prior to estimation of new die design and construction, or prior to die casting production using “inherited” tooling. It should be used in combination with checklists C-8-1 and C-8-2 below.
Die Cast Production Specifications (C-8-1)
This checklist is for use in consultation with your die caster prior to estimating production costs. Used in combination with the Finishing Checklist C-8-2, it provides a convenient method for assuring important factors involved in purchasing die cast parts are evaluated and clearly communicated between the purchaser and the die caster.
Die Cast Surface Finishing Specifications (C-8-2)
This checklist is for use in consultation with your die caster prior to estimating production costs. Used in combination with the Finishing Checklist C-8-1, it provides a convenient method for assuring that important factors involved in the surface finishing of die cast parts are evaluated and clearly communicated between the purchaser and the die caster.
Both C-8-1 and C-8-2 should be used as a supplement, to the essential dimensional and alloy specifications detailed on part prints submitted for quotation, since the listed factors directly affect the basis on which the die casting quotation is made. The checklists may be reproduced for this purpose. Your die caster will clarify any item requiring explanation.
These three checklists are published in the NADCA Product Specification Standards Book available from the North American Die Casting Association.
