Die-casting makes it possible to obtain complex geometries by forcing molten metal under high pressure into a mould: in the hollow cavity of the mould, the metal solidifies into the desired shape, which can be highly complex. This method has enabled Alias to produce parts and components of unusual shapes and reduced thickness. The advantages of this method are numerous, including lack of porosity, no warping, well-finished surfaces. Furthermore, it can be used to create parts with inserts of various compositions, greatly reducing the need to add more elements, such as screws and bolts, thereby saving material and weight.
The unique aesthetics of aluminium products can be enhanced by die-casting, which offers different degrees of surface finish. After undergoing the sand-blasting process, the pieces may treated with tumbling, polishing, chrome plating, buffing and painting.
