Three entries by Chicago White Metal Casting were winners in each of their categories in the 2009 压铸 Design Contest of the North American 压铸 Assn., scoring a first-ever triple win for CWM in this international contest.
铝压铸件，1到10磅., CWM was the winner with a baseplate control support structure for a dental workstation, 用作固定空气的刚性平台, 水, 还有用化妆罩遮住的气动控制管路. 切割功能超过6英寸. 长度8.5 in. center width of this plate restricts the edge-to-edge metal flow, creating a challenging die fill. CWM employed its Magmasoft simulation software in developing the optimum gating system for this component.
铝压铸件，1磅以下., the winning as-cast die casting went to the CWM automotive mirror mount. This casting achieves the structural integrity and critical dimensional accuracy required to withstand years of trouble-free operation through wide changes in temperature and humidity. 球端公差为+/-0.1毫米，必须在长期生产运行中保持
镁压铸件，完毕 .5磅., CWM’s third winner was a set of two hot-chamber Mg side-walls for a medical imager, providing exterior cosmetics as well as critical functions to this state-of-the-art desktop unit: the die cast walls assure cassette alignment and support for rollers and motors. Die cast Mg offered optimum dimensional accuracy and repeatability, with flatness held as-cast to .032 in. 或者少于20英寸. 长度，体重显著减少. 专有的注射系统消除了边缘门控, 用金属直接注射到压铸件中.
