One of the constraints in die casting often is the fairly high cost of tooling. This high cost makes it difficult, or in some cases even impossible, for some companies to compete or justify developing many products utilizing die castings aesthetics and superior mechanical strengths.
In surveys done by CSCMP and APICS, quality of offshore supplier is often rated as #1 or #2 issue by purchasing managers, die casting commodity managers and engineers. There is a lot of information on the internet, but most of the suppliers would not be picked by customers as websites are not comprehensive or sometimes deceiving. What makes a difference are having engineers or sourcing people on the ground who can visit suppliers, who can do some due diligence with local competitors, tooling suppliers, accountants and if needed, banks. MES has team on the ground in India and China to do second level diligence on supplier’s capabilities.
