What Die Casting Process Should You Use for Your Designs and Products?

I have been talking to potential customers for many years now regarding what die casting process is best for their specific product or designs.

Unfortunately there are many sources of design information and descriptions about each casting process scattered throughout the internet.   However, there is not too much in the way of comparative data that offers a designer or purchaser a quick overview of what is available and why a particular casting process might work best in the first place.  This is true especially if you are not too familiar with any casting process and need to know more.

As a result, I worked on gathering information and complied what I thought could be useful for those in the marketplace and help make their decision process a bit easier.
