This manual covers specification, design and production guidance for both users and manufacturers of conventional high pressure die castings. The manual presents tooling and processes information, alloy properties, standard and precision tolerances, GD&T, design guidelines, quality assurance provisions and more.

Revisions for this edition include: updated die casting die specification checklist; additional guidelines to increase die life; alloy composition and properties of company specific alloys; additional data for zinc alloys at temperature; EN specifications and chemical compositions for aluminum alloys; expanded zinc cross reference specifications and chemical compositions; clarified parting line calculation terminology; additional miniature die casting die materials; information on small metal savers and bumping ejector pins; and updated commercial practices to include compliance with laws and intellectual property. New, improved and updated photographs and line drawings have been added throughout.
