Why Choose Frigate for Custom Casting?

Rigorous Quality Control

Frigate Engineering adheres to strict quality control procedures throughout the casting process. We employ advanced inspection techniques such as X-ray, ultrasonic testing, and dimensional analysis to ensure castings meet your specifications and industry standards.

Finite Element Analysis (FEA) Integration

Our in-house FEA capabilities allow us to analyze casting designs for potential stress points and optimize them for strength and performance. This minimizes the risk of casting defects and ensures parts can withstand intended loads and operating conditions.

Advanced Inspection Techniques

We utilize CMMs, ultrasonic testing, and other non-destructive testing (NDT) methods to verify dimensional accuracy, material properties, and weld integrity. This guarantees parts meet your exact specifications and comply with industry standards.

Casting Materials

Our casting services offer a fusion of precision and creativity, molding metals into bespoke designs with finesse. Whether it’s iron’s resilience or bronze’s fluidity, we bring your visions to life with expert craftsmanship.

Cast Metal Materials

Aluminum Casting

Aluminum alloys are the most widely used for cast parts. Aluminum casting suppliers benefit from the total recyclability of the material and its ease of use. Due to the comparatively higher melting point, aluminum casting may require a cold chamber casting process. Engineers use cast aluminum parts primarily for their great strength-to-weight ratios, dimensional stability, and diverse finishing options. Some of the other common characteristics of cast aluminum alloys are:

  • Withstand high operating temperatures
  • Corrosion Resistance
  • Good stiffness
  • High thermal and electrical conductivity

Engineers and designers can choose from various alloys for their aluminum casting parts. Frigate offers the most popular aluminum casting alloys, including:

  • A360.0
  • A380.0
  • A383.0 (ADC12)
  • A413.0
Zinc Casting

Zinc is the easiest to cast material among the casting metals and is typically used in hot chamber processes. Molten zinc has exceptional casting fluidity and a lower melting point. Its strength and stiffness allow it to produce parts with thinner walls and highly detailed features and maintain tight tolerances. The low melting point of casting zinc alloys means the casted parts cool off and solidify more quickly, which results in the fastest production rates of the casting materials. Zinc is an all-around well-performing material due to its balance of mechanical and physical characteristics, which include,

Impact strength
High hardness
Great stability
High-quality surface finish and easily plated
Low melting point


Frigate offers the most popular types of Zamak and ZA casting zinc alloys. More specifically, those alloys include,

Zamak 2 (ZA-2)
Zamak 3 (ZA-3)

Having Doubts? Our FAQ

Check all our Frequently Asked Question

What is casting?

Casting is a manufacturing process that involves pouring molten metal into a mold cavity and allowing it to solidify. Once cooled, the solidified metal takes the shape of the mold cavity, creating a cast part.

What are the benefits of casting?

Casting offers several benefits, including: 

  • Ability to produce complex shapes and sizes. 
  • Cost-effectiveness for high-volume production. 
  • Material flexibility with various metals, plastics, and ceramics. 
  • Design freedom for intricate details. 
  • Strength and durability of cast components. 
What materials do you offer for casting?

We offer a wide range of casting materials, including aluminum, zinc, and various alloys. Our team can help you choose the right material for your specific application. 

What is the difference between standard and custom die casting?

Standard casting uses pre-existing molds to mass-produce identical parts. Custom casting involves designing and creating a unique mold to produce parts according to your requirements.

What are the benefits of custom casting?

Custom casting offers several advantages, including: 

  • Production of parts with unique shapes and features. 
  • Optimization for better performance and efficiency. 
  • Reduced costs through design optimization.
