Introduction

Die casting is the Metal forming process in which


molten metal is forced into a cavity or mold under
high pressure. This takes place under high
pressure which is applied to the molten metal
which is inserted into mold cavity.
Die casting is an efficient, economical process
offering a broader range of shapes and
components than any other manufacturing
technique.

Process
Die casting provides complex shapes within closer
tolerances than many other mass production
processes. Little or no machining is required and
thousands of identical castings can be produced before
additional tooling is required.
Die casting is one of the most versatile and prolific
metalworking processes, creating countless varieties
of parts used in almost every industry imaginable.
Interestingly enough, it dates back to the mid 1800s,
and today, innovations keep it moving forward.

Die Casting Parts

The Hot Chamber Die Casting


Process
Hot chamber die casting is one of the two
main techniques in the manufacturing
process of die casting, Hot chamber die
casting has the advantage of a very high
rate
of productivity. During industrial
manufacture by this process one of the
disadvantages is that the setup requires that
critical parts of the mechanical apparatus,
(such as the plunger), must be continuously
submersed in molten material.

The Vacuum Die Casting


Process

Vacuum casting creates good


conditions for decisively reducing
gas
porosity, since air is evacuated from
the
die cavity. Depending on the alloy
used,
the
required
values
may
be
achieved in
vacuum
casting
even
without
additional
heat
treatment.

The Cold Chamber Die Casting


Process

Cold chamber die casting is a permanent


mold metal casting process. A reusable
mold, gating system and all, is employed.
It
is most likely machined precisely from
two
steel blocks. Large robust machines are
used
to exert the great clamping force
necessary
to hold the two halves of the mold
together
against the tremendous pressures exerted
during the manufacturing process.

The Low Pressure Die Casting


Process

Low pressure die casting is competitive casting method


when the production quantity is relatively small and/or
when heat treatment is needed to improve the mechanical
properties. The tolerances and the surface finish are the
same as achieved by gravity die casting. The tooling costs
are somewhat higher than by sand casting.

What Are The Benefits of Die


Casting?
The benefits of using die casting over other methods of part
production are numerous. Die casting provides cost-effective
solutions to create parts that have complex shapes, parts that require
a high heat tolerance, and also allows us to produce a part with
tighter and stricter tolerances. Die casting historically has inherently
produced less scrap and requires less machining than machining
parts our of raw billets. When compared with forgings, plastic
injections, stampings, etc, die casting is the clear choice for superior
part quality with a low cost.
Die casting produces parts with
excellent
strength to weight ratios and allows for many different finishing
capabilities.
