Die Cast

When might low quantities be justified for the die-casting process?

When might low quantities be justified for the die-casting

process?

When cost of machining from solid,exceeds the of the mold? though "low quantities" might be relative in that case. Or the shape is not practical to machine from solid? but with high speed spindles and small cutters in CNC machines one can machine pretty impressive things, though again, "low quantities" might be relative, an intricate part will require an intricate mold.
Even if machining the parts is not practical, now days one might consider one of the rapid prototyping systems, either laser sintered metal, or making the plastic/wax pattern for investment casting.
