Key Manufacturers M - Z
Trim presses remove excess material from the parts produced by die-casting equipment. In the die-casting process, the metal is heated until it is in a liquid state, then the die cast forces the liquid metal a mold. The mold is also called a die. When the metal cools, it returns into a solid state. The cast is ejected by ejector pins. At this point, the trim press is used to remove excess material from the die. This excess material is alled gate or flashing.
