This article examines how design and materials selection address diverse requirements, such as cost, speed, and quality requirements of the process paired with the functional requirements of conventional die casting tooling, specifically tooling for high-volume processes. It discusses considerations, including properties of the material being cast, capacity and operating parameters of the casting machines being used, and economics of post processing that are considered along with the functional requirements.
