Locations for Die Casting in Vietnam
Ho Chi Minh City (previously known as Saigon) is the largest city in Vietnam and boasts most of the country’s metal fabrication capacity. The larger facilities are located in the surrounding provinces and are generally within a 2 or 3 hour drive from the capital. Die casting facilities are also located in the north, in the area surrounding Hanoi. Vietnam is known globally for mold production for die casting and injection molding. Many die casting manufacturers in Japan and Taiwan source their molds from Vietnam. As such, the die casting industry is continuing to grow and develop within Vietnam around the already robust mold industry.
Parts Made with Die Casting in Vietnam
Die casting in Vietnam is used to produce casings, fittings, handles, heat sinks and other parts for consumer and automotive products. The automotive industry is ramping up in Vietnam and is driving growth for die casting parts in the country.
Overview: What is Die Casting?
Die casting is a metal casting process that is characterized by forcing molten metal under high pressure into a mold cavity. The mold cavity is created using two hardened tool steel dies which
have been machined into shape and work similarly to an injection mold during the process. Most die castings are made from non-ferrous metals, specifically zinc, copper, aluminium, magnesium,
lead, pewter and tin based alloys. Depending on the type of metal being cast, a hot- or cold chamber machine is used. Die casting typically has a high rate of production and parts can be produced very economically at a high degree of precision.
