DIE CASTING TRIM TOOLING
After a part is produced with the die casting tooling in the die casting machine, a die casting trim tool called a trim die is used to sheer the excess aluminum around the parts. Die casting trim dies can save as much as 15% in the part price by speeding up the production process. Die casting trim dies cut or shear excess aluminum from die cast parts. The trim die sits or is mounted into a trim press that hydraulically forces the two halves of the trim die together with several tons of pressure.
