Die castings are important components in thousands of consumer, commercial and industrial products such as automobiles; household appliances; recreation, hobby and leisure products; farm and garden equipment; electrical equipment and ordnance; general hardware; power tools; computers and other business equipment; instruments; toys; novelties; and a great many others too numerous to mention. In fact, die castings have greater utility and are used in more applications than components produced by almost any other metal forming process.
