The arrival of 5G, no matter wireless base station or terminal mobile phone, puts forward higher demand for die casting technology and will drive a new round of development of die casting industry.

The upgrade of 4G to 5G introduces a new architecture of unlimited access network. The structure of base station is about three times of that of 4G products in terms of volume, weight and power consumption. At the same time, the heat sink of shell is increased and densification, making the structure more complex.
