Company is an American
Manufacturer and job shop foundry in the USA specializing in producing high
quality Aluminum Alloy Die Casting and Zinc Alloy Die-Casting using a unique
Vacuum Die Casting Process. The die casting

Prototype Casting is a rapid protyping
process commonly used to simulate die casting and diecastings
through the production of Aluminum Die Casting Prototypes and Zinc
Die Casting Prototypes.
Prototype castings can be produced fast to
meet project deadlines, sometimes in as few as 7 days.
Prototype castings can be tested for fit,
form and function so design flaws can be eliminated before die
casting production begins.
Prototype castings can be used until die
cast parts are in production so your customers can have finished
parts in their hands.
Prototype aluminum die castings and
prototype zinc die castings simulate the mechanical properties and
characteristics of die castings such as die cast quality, finish and
Prototype casting processes and techniques such as Rubber Plaster
Mold (RPM)enable detailed aluminum prototypes and zinc prototypes to
3D CAD Data
Prototype castings are produced from a
physical model or pattern using 3D CAD data enabling the production
of high tolerance prototype parts.
Design And Engineering
Expert pattern design and engineering
results in high quality close tolerance prototype castings.
Molten aluminum or zinc is poured into a
pattern and when cooled the pattern is broken open to extract the
Prototype Castings - SLA (Stereolithography)
SLA stands for
Stereolithography which is one of the most widely used rapid prototyping
Stereolithography (SLA) parts are produced by laser curing of an epoxy
resin based photopolymer.
Stereolithography creates a 3D object by applying a laser beam to thin
layers of special liquid photo curable resin material with limited
physical properties thus limiting the application of the prototypes as
functional models. SLA produces prototypes with high dimensional
accuracy with a typical tolerance of 0.005" for the first inch and
0.002" for other features.
SLS stands for Selective
Laser Sintering and is a cost effective solution for durable and
functional black or natural-colored prototype parts with end-use
performance properties, although cosmetic surfaces are not as smooth
and edges not as sharp. SLS uses a laser beam to selectively fuse
powder material into a solid object. Materials such as nylon,
thermal plastic elastomers and metals. SLS produces high quality
funtional prototype parts.
stands for Fused Deposition Modeling. FDM builds a 3D object by
extruding molten plastic that hardens layer-by-layer. FDM utilizes ABS
or polycarbonate as the material; therefore, it creates functional
prototypes. However, since the FDM prototypes are not created under the
conditions like injection molding and special formulations are used for
FDM plastic materials, the prototypes made with FDM technology has about
60% to 80% of the physical strength of the corresponding injection
CNC stands for Computer Numerical Control. CNC prototyping uses modern
computer controlled machining to cut stock materials to the shape of the
design. CNC prototypes are made of almost identical material to the
actual product desired and provides the closest representations of real
Prototype casting allows our customers to
quickly get metal parts using their own product designs and immediately
test them for fit, form and function. Design modifications can then be
made if necessary. Prototype casting is a fast and economical approach
that accellerates product to market success.
Some advantages of
Prototype Castings include:
production lead times
design testing prior to building die cast tooling
new die cast design costs and risks
the production of die cast tooling and die castings
and engineering change cost reductions
sales, marketing and promotion of 'New Concepts'
product to market success
KenWalt Die Casting Company partners with
select prototype companies who specialize in high quality aluminum and
zinc die cast prototype parts with short lead times to meet our
customer's unique requirements.

Solar Powered Die Casting Foundry
Die Casting, a very traditional industry, is using solar energy
(alternative energy) to help power its facility in Sun Valley into the
line with our continuing commitment to make a positive impact in
society and improve lives and our environment, KenWalt Die Casting
Company is expanding upon it's 'Commitment
reducing our environmental impact in our newly expanded
offices, secondary facilities, new inventory facility and our
Die Casting production facility.
conservation and recycling raw materials are two key factors in our
energy conservation efforts to enhance our activities and improve lives
and our environment. By recycling and reusing 100% of our aluminum and
zinc alloy materials as well as pallets, packaging
containers, filters and hydraulic oil used in our aluminum and
zinc die casting process, we are making a big difference", says
KenWalt's Quality Manager and Co-Owner Kenny Zaucha.
KenWalt has continued to implement energy conservation actions
conserve materials and energy, such as using energy efficient furnaces
to melt aluminum and zinc alloys and reusing machine lubrication oils
and die sprays. From turning off little used lights to early
work schedules that avoid peek energy usage, KenWalt's
individually and as a team, contribute to energy conservation and
improving our environment.
Die Casting Company installed a brand NEW 35.9 kW SOLAR SYSTEM
thanks to the cooperation and efforts of SolarCity Corporation (SOLARCITY), Los Angeles Department
of Building & Safety
(LADBS), Los Angeles
Department of Water and Power (LADWP),
Government Tax Credit Incentives. Our new
renewable solar energy system will lower our aluminum and zinc die
casting operating costs, enable us to remain competitive both
nationally and internationally, continue expanding and creating more US
jobs and enable us pass on those cost savings
to our customers.

" Thank you so much for the sample parts..We hope the anodizing
outcome will help our customer."
month later) "Just to let you know that the parts anodized
(our customer) were happy with the results and we were awarded the
hope we are in a position to be as helpful as you folks were in
getting this job. It's nice to know there are a few of us who work
together left out there."

performance has been 100%! All items shipped on-time with 0 defects.
thank all of your people for their efforts. The completed
product delivered to us is beautiful. We foresee many more orders!"
are very grateful for the informative discussion and tour of your
die casting facility. We were genuinely impressed with your helpful
attitude, knowledge of business and ability to explain the casting
process. Now we feel confident that our companies are in good hands!"
is a VCR tape we made of your casting in our x-ray machine.
Porosity shows in these as white specs. As you can see from the tape,
we couldn't find any in your product, so we have a winner here."
