Die casting is a metal casting process that is characterized by forcing molten metal under high pressure into a mold cavity. The mold cavity is created using two hardened tool steel dies and work similarly to an injection mold during the process. The typical material for high pressure die casting are aluminum, zinc, magnesium, copper, and tin-based alloys. Depending on the type of metal being cast, a hot, or cold-chamber machine is used. Auwell typically provides services for hot chamber aluminum and zinc die casting molds and products.
High pressure die casting can be done in a single or multiple cavities, use of unit dies or a combination of dies depends on the product requirements.
Different type of dies in the die casting process:
-Single cavity to produce one component
-Multiple cavities to produce several identical parts
-Unit die to produce different parts at one time
-Combination die to produce several different parts for an assembly
The casting equipment and the metal dies represent large capital costs. It is thus especially suited for a large quantity of small to medium sized castings, which is why high pressure die casting produces more castings than any other casting process. High pressure die casting is characterized by an excellent surface finish (by casting standards) and dimensional accuracy.
High pressure die casting is now considered as an industrial procedure, used to manufacture parts for sale, or as part of machines for any other commercial or industrial production. The process allows production of accurate products to the desired size, shape, and thickness with tight tolerances, making it the most simple yet effective casting process, essential for creating metal parts with specified details and quality demands.
High pressure die casting is proven as beneficial to products. In this process, various modifications can be made to the production. Manufacturers spend less funds and less time in the making of the produced die-cast parts which are more attractive to the eyes of the buyers.
High pressure die casting can eliminate post-machining and repeated molding. The process is very economical and finished products made under this process are accurate and long-lasting.
High pressure die casting is an efficient, economical process offering a broader range of shapes and components than any other manufacturing technique. Parts have a long service life and may be designed to complement the visual appeal of the surrounding part.
Advantages of high-pressure die casting are as following:
High-pressure die casting supports complex shapes within closer tolerances compared to many other mass production processes. Little or no machining is required and thousands of identical castings can be produced before additional tooling is required.
-Excellent dimensional accuracy and stability
High pressure die casting produces parts that are durable with dimensional consistancy while maintaining close tolerances. They are also heat resistant.
-Strength and weight
High-pressure die casting parts have considerable high tensile strength at 415mpa. Thin wall castings are stronger and lighter than those possible with other casting methods.
-Multiple finishing techniques
High-pressure die-cast parts can be produced with smooth or textured surfaces, and they are easily plated or finished with minimum surface preparation.
High pressure die casting provides integral fastening elements, such as bosses and studs. Holes can be cored and made to size using tap drills, external threads can otherwise be cast.
