Aluminum Parts Die Casting Draft Angle
Aluminum Die Casting Parts need an angle to be ejected (extracted) from the die casting mold (die cast die). This draft angle is measured in degrees. The typical draft angle for an aluminum die cast part is two degrees. To measure two degrees of aluminum draft angle, one would measure the part on the larger section and deduct 0.017" for every degree of draft angle to calculate the thickness of the smaller section.
