Die casting of prototypes - the process in brief

professionel sparring

Professional partners
Formkon has more than 35 years of experience in the design and engineering of die-cast parts. That’s why we can advise our clients effectively, saving everyone time and money.

Casting simulations
For complex parts we use advanced flow simulations. These simulations enable an optimal start – with minimized error risk and optimized lead time.

Prototype tools
In order to save time, we work exclusively with prototype tools in soft steel grades. The die cast parts are then produced on die casting machines up to 3000 tons clamping force.

CNC machining
After casting, CNC machining can take place. Thanks to state-of-the-art technology and machinery, we can process very complex and demanding components.

Quality control
Before shipping the items, we can measure and check them to ensure that they fully meet the customer’s requirements.

Lightning fast delivery times
The complete concept is optimized to quickly deliver the right quality. This concerns the complete procedure from offer to delivery. For us, quick reactions and close dialogue are important, so that together we optimize the lead time.
