Callen manufactures precision Miniature Zinc Die Cast components with weights ranging up to 12 ounces for numerous industrial market sectors including:

  • Security Devices
  • Industrial Controls
  • Computer Hardware
  • Electronics
  • Telecommunications

Automated hot-chambered miniature zinc die casting machines with process times up to 1200 cycles/hr  produce components that do not require secondary trimming or deburring.

A significant economic advantage of the process is the utilization of inexpensive tooling ranging in price from $7,500 to $35,000 that in many cases yield life-of-project utility and low-cost parts.
