Squeeze Casting - An Overview

Squeeze casting is a combination of casting and forging.  In Squeeze casting, the molten material is poured into an open mould.  The upper mould is then placed on the material and pressure is applied during the process of solidification.  This process has the advantages of both casting and forging.

It is possible to create parts with great complexity and detail using this process. Automotive components are generally made using this process.  The process is cheap and simple.
