As a best-in-class manufacturer of flash-free, zinc die casting components, Lincoln Industries provides parts within a wide variety of part specifications, including weight ranges from 0.002 ounces (1 g) to 7 pounds (3.2 kg), shot weights up to 10 pounds and dimensional tolerances within ± 0.0005 inches.The die casting process yields components of exceptional precision and complexity, even with thin walls and cosmetic surfaces. Allowing for high-speed, simultaneous production of multiple parts and achieving greater strength while using less material makes die casting more efficient than other processes.

Tight Tolerances: Lincoln Industries zinc die castings feature tight dimensional tolerances within ± 0.0005 inches.


Flash-Free, Cast-to-Print Production: Whether your part is functional or decorative, our zinc die casting expertise provides the freedom to create accurate designs.


Increased Production Rates: Zinc die casting improves productivity rates and time-to-market.


Reduced Need for Secondary Operations: Zinc die casting yields an exceptional finish, essentially eliminating the need for trimming, drilling and machining.  


 Zinc

Our zinc die casting process offers greater quality benefits than other materials commonly used in casting and molding. To produce exceptional components, we use four top-quality zinc alloys — Zamak 3, Zamak 5, ZA-8 and Zamak 2. These materials exhibit high levels of strength and allow us to create a variety of complex, tight-tolerance parts.

Examples of our zinc die castings include lock components, gear housings, connectors, clamps, automotive rear-view mirror mounts, police road spikes, functional and decorative parts, small engine carburetors, point-of-purchase security devices and more. Specializing in flash-free, net-shape production, we ensure that your zinc die cast components meet your exact design specifications.

Advantages

  • High-Quality Casting Capabilities: Zinc can achieve tighter tolerances than molded plastics or cast aluminum. Zinc offers a thin wall castability and the ability to cast to print with little to no draft.

  • Superior Mechanical Properties: Zinc features excellent bearing and tensile strength, as well as rigidity.

  • Exceptional Physical Properties: Zinc conducts electricity while dissipating heat.

  • Multiple Finishing Options: Zinc is suitable for a variety of finishing options for cosmetic and anti-corrosion purposes, including: electroplating, overmolding, powder coating, chrome plating, PVD (physical vapor deposition) and CVD (chemical vapor deposition).

  • Environmentally Sustainable: All zinc materials are non-toxic and can be recycled.

 

ALUMINUM

Our aluminum die casting process allows for fast production rates, as well as the ability to produce precise, lightweight, high-strength products. Additionally, aluminum die casting allows for production of a wide variety of intricate, near-net shapes and varied finishes.
