Basic Aluminum Casting Co.

For over half a century The Basic Aluminum Casting Company has been a privately held, financially solid die casting company with a professional integrity matched by few in today’s industry.diecasting

At The Basic Aluminum Casting Company, we bring quality die casting with delivery and pricing achieved through a sound business organization. Centrally located in Cleveland, Ohio, we’re easily accessible across the Midwest and the entire United States. Occupying over 55,000 square feet at our plant, Basic has serves the transportation and general manufacturing industries and beyond! The Basic Aluminum Casting Company can be best described as an engineering company with one simple trait – creating die cast products  from listening and understanding our customer’s needs.  A strong commitment to that and a focus on quality has enabled us to continue to be one of the best and oldest names in the industry.


Computer simulation has become a valuable tool for die design over the past decade as the available software has become more capable and usable.
Computer simulation is the application of computational methods to solve the equations that describe fluid, thermal stress and displacement relationships that apply in any mechanical system. The die cast specific simulation tools (e.g. ProCast, Magma, SimTech, EKK, Flow 3D, etc) may handle model work automatically and can save considerable time and effort in modeling and simulation tasks.As applied to design, the applications of simulation are thermal and heat transfer problems, fluid flow problems and stress and displacement issues. The basic objective is to optimize the die before steel is cut. The benefits most often cited are savings down-stream in the development cycle due to less process development time and tooling rework and cost-savings throughout product life-cycle.
