Zinc Connectors/Custom Manufactured Electronic Connectors and Fiber Optic Connectors

Small & miniature zinc die castings manufactured by Creco Cast are ideal for the electronics and fiber optics industries. The zinc die casting process produces parts with excellent EMI/RFI shielding characteristics, allowing the zinc die casting to act as an electrical ground for internal circuits.


In addition to providing superior EMI/RFI shielding, zinc die castings offer the design engineer the freedom to combine multiple functions in complex, thin wall, flash free, multi-cavity, net shapes, coupled with extremely high production efficiencies. Electronic connector features such as threads, grips, knurls, flanges, through holes and blind holes are all easily produced using the zinc die casting process.


Through the use of high-volume, multi-slide equipment, zinc die castings manufactured by Creco Cast can offer domestically produced, cost effective, OEM quanties with ISO 9001 quality standards.

Why Manufacture Connectors With Zinc Die Castings?

  • Precise, close dimensional tolerances
  • Components can be cast with very thin walls
  • Opportunity to incorporate complex designs into a single casting
  • Ability to produce connectors that have small cored holes, minimum side wall draft
  • Long lasting, low maintenance dies
  • Proven for all styles of connector and other applications: threaded reduces requirements for secondary operations

Zinc Alloys are ideally suited to electronic connecting components because...

  • ZN and its alloys are inexpensive and readily available
  • Offers excellent EMI/RFI shielding characteristics
  • Easily plated/superior finish/highly aesthetic
  • Stronger, stiffer, tougher than many conventional materials
  • Alloys to choose from include Zamak 2, Zamak 3, Zamak 5, Zamak 7, Zamak 8, & ZA-8.

Fiber optic and electronics connectors made as zinc die castings offer the following benefits...

  • Cost savings over other manufacturing methods
  • Durable parts with outstanding finishes
  • Reliable, repeatable manufacturing processes equates to high volume and best of quality production runs
