controlling mechanical and material properties with alloy selection

The choice of alloy used in casting will determine the casting quality and material properties of the part, as well as the design functionality. Often, material selection reverts to what’s always been used, but higher performing, specially created alloys can now offer high performance combined with cost efficiency.
