The Future of Die Casting: Meeting the Demands of Global Sourcing and Supply Chains

The Future of Die Casting

Die casting is a vital manufacturing process for many industries, but it’s facing new challenges in the age of strategic sourcing. This die casting industry is adapting to meet the demands of modern supply chains, by looking at key issues such as light weighting, using new materials and sustainable sourcing. Global Sourcing and Procurement teams are increasingly focused on a range of additional elements that are critical to their business needs and delivering on commitments. Building the focus from the traditional sourcing and procurement elements of Price, Quality and Supply to incorporate a range of additional dimensions ranging from environmental Impact, social and ethical risk factors. Stretching and building the role for Procurement teams in their creation of Global Sourcing       strategies.          

Global Sourcing strategies for Die Casting

The development and deployment of Global Sourcing Strategies have supported the growth of Die Casting  and the emerging demands and trends for Die Casting products.

Die casting is a manufacturing process used to produce metal components by injecting molten metal into a reusable mould. The molten metal is forced under high pressure into the mould cavity, where it solidifies and takes the shape of the mould. Once the metal has cooled, the die is opened, and the solidified part, known as a casting, is ejected.
