Importance of Die Casting
America’s most fundamental industry, metal casting, continues to play a critical role in the success of U.S. manufacturing through the production of high quality castings and support of key industry sectors. In fact, castings are used in 90% of all finished manufactured products.
As an important segment of the larger metal casting industry, the die casting industry produces over one-third of all metal castings. Today, there are over 300 die casting companies in the U.S. comprising over 375 individual die casting plants, which manufacture thousands and thousands of non-ferrous castings: from automobile engine and transmission parts to intricate components for computers and medical devices.
In the United States, die casters contribute over $8 billion to the nation’s economy annually and provide over 50,000 jobs directly and indirectly.
The die casting industry is a microcosm of American business with over 55% of the companies having fewer than 100 employees, while our larger firms are world leaders.
In the medical field, die casting applications include portable medical monitors, dental X-ray units, electronically operated hospital beds, EKG machines, ultrasound equipment, and other hand-held medical devices.
