Parts converted to zinc for more durability

Link Segment manufactured by Lakeside Casting Solutions

Originally designed in plastic material, the plastic part failed durability testing. The part was redesigned in zinc material to improve strength and wear characteristics. When Lakeside Casting Solutions was contacted to build a prototype tool, our customer’s next scheduled product build was eight days away. Few die casters could accept the challenge put before us, but with the help of our dedicated associates and onsite tool shop, we delivered 200 samples in time for the next product build.
