The guidelines and standards for the specification of products to be produced as die castings presented on this web site are generic in nature. They are offered as a convenient reference for the general direction of die casting component designers and specifiers, whose final decisions must depend on their own engineering and design judgment and predictive testing under application conditions. Use of these guidelines and standards is voluntary.

The unique characteristics and features of a specific die cast component design are the major determinants of the final specifications which can be economically achieved by the die casting process.

The product designer is urged to consult with their die caster to establish more precisely those guidelines which can be expected to apply to a particular design under consideration.
