Die Casting

 

AXIAM’s range of casting options is extensive; creating products ranging from 7 grams to 300 Kilograms. Our casting range utilises fully automated high pressure die-casting machines, low pressure gravity machines, hand poured moulds and everything in between.

 

We offer high strength, highly durable hardened steel dies as well as single use, investment sand casts. Our range of automation allows highly precise and repeatable castings, along with the ability to allow our skilled casters to inject their artistry into each casting. Put simply: if it needs to be cast we have the skill & technology to cast it.
