die casting es el nombre genérico para una técnica de fundición


Explanation:
die casting es "fundición a presión". El aluminio´aleaciones de zinc y otros metales de punto de fusión relativamente bajo suelen fundirse con esta técnica que consiste en inyectar el metal fundido en un molde. Como en el caso de los plásticos.

Regaderas, manerales para llaves de lavabo, son fabricadas con este sistema. "Die caster" es o bien la persona que opera la máquina, o bien la máquina en sí misma.
