Design & Engineering

COMEST is specialized in projecting die casting dies for automotive market components going from powertrain parts and structural parts made of aluminum alloys, ending with magnesium parts, more and more requested.

Our experienced engineering staff will assist our clients in all the steps involved with project development for the realization of medium and large dies up to 60 tons, for die casting machines up to 4400 tons.

Our Technical Department can realize the complete die design, according to the specific requirements of each customer, and assist our clients through complete product development, guaranteeing maximum results.

Our know-how, long term experience as die makers, enables us to grant a complete and constant assistance our customers.


Starting from the 3D design provided by our client, we elaborate the project of the die using the most updated software

Creo 2.0;

Siemens NX


As a first step, we elaborate a preliminary layout of the die that will be later validated by our client.

Then, we proceed to develop the complete 3D and 2D design of the die applying the most innovative and efficient solutions. Through our decades-long experience in project design we are able to provide our clients suggestions for maximum product optimization and constant engineering assistance, bringing them a real value added service.



At this stage we offer the possibility to use ProCAST to validate decisions during prototyping, using metal filling simulation to perform the predictive evaluation of the entire casting process including filling and solidification defects.

This system, of great importance for foundries, enables a rapid visualization of design changes and allows for correct decision-making at an early stage of the manufacturing process, improving yield and reducing risks as well as manufacturing costs.



We are also specialized in co-design, when final product design and die casting die project are carried out simultaneously. We allow the foundry to anticipate the production launch and optimize the project by applying the most efficient choices from the very beginning.

We will work jointly with the client since the very early stages of project development, bringing our long-term experience in the field at the service of improving our clients’ performances, and achieving maximum results, as well as shortening our clients’ lead times.
