Metal Casting

What Is Casting?

Metal casting is an ancient technique that has a variety of applications and purposes. Civilizations from the dawn of time to present day have used metal working as a way of creating artistic, religious, and practical items. The process of metal casting involves melting metals at high temperatures and using molds to then shape the metal into new items. The furnaces used in metal casting helped pave the way for the Industrial Revolution, without which the course of history would be dramatically different. Metal casting is just one form of metal working that has seen a recent surge in popularity as resources are becoming more affordable and communities are springing up to share information, ideas, and projects.

Die Casting Process

The characteristic of die casting

Pressure casting or casting, is a molten gold poured into the pressure chamber, to the high speed filling steel mold cavity, and the alloy liquid under pressure solidification and casting method. Die casting is distinguished from other casting method is mainly characterized by the high pressure and high speed. Metal liquid is under pressure to fill the cavity, and at higher pressure solidification under common pressure, 15 to 100MPa. The liquid metal to the high speed filling cavity, usually in the 10 – 50 meters / second, some still can exceed 80 m / s, ( through the gate into the cavity of the line speed gate speed ), thus the filling time is very short, about 0.01 – 0.2 seconds ( must be considered casting size different ) can fill the cavity. Die casting machine, die casting alloy and die casting is a casting production of the three elements, are indispensable. Read more

Casting Mold Technology

There are three main forms of Casting Mold failure

1 thermal fatigue crack damage failure

Thermal fatigue cracking failure of die casting production, mold repeatedly stimulated cooling and heating effect, the molding surface and internal deformation are involved, and the repeated cycles of thermal stress, leading to tissue structure of two injury and loss of toughness, causing cracks appeared, and continue to expand, once a crack expanding, and molten metal liquid impact, coupled with repeated mechanical stress crack accelerated expansion. Therefore, on one hand casting mold must be fully preheat starting. In addition, in the production of the die casting die in must be kept in a certain temperature range, so as to avoid the early cracking. At the same time, to ensure the mold production and manufacturing of internal no problem. Because of the practical production, the majority of the ineffectiveness of the die thermal fatigue cracking.

Alloy Die Casting

Aluminum Alloy Die Casting Alloy 380 is the most common of the aluminum die casting alloys. It offers the best combination of casting and product properties. It is used for a wide variety of products such as garden equipment, chassis for electronic equipment, engine brackets, housings for automotive alternators, starters and water pumps, home appliances, furniture, office eqipment hand tools and power tools. Alloys 383 and 384 are alternatives to 380 that are specified when very intricate components require improved die filling characteristics and improved resistance to hot cracking. Alloy 360 offers high corrosion resistance and superior strength at elevated temperatures than 380. Other properties are essentially equivalent. Alloy 413 offers the best die fill characteristics making it Read more

Aluminum Die Casting

Aluminum Die Casting Description:
Aluminum Die Casting, Die casting is similar to Permanent mold castings except that the metal is injected into the mold under high pressure of 10-210Mpa (1,450-30,500) psi . This results in a more uniform part, generally good surface finish and good dimensional accuracy, as good as 0.2 % of casting dimension. For many parts, post-machining can be totally eliminated, or very light machining may be required to bring dimensions to size. die casting,aluminum casting can be done using a cold chamber or hot chamber process.

Die casting alloy

Die casting alloy

Die casting the alloy is mainly nonferrous alloys, as black metal ( steel, iron ) as the mold materials, being less frequently used. And non-ferrous alloy die casting with aluminum alloy is used widely, the zinc alloy. To briefly introduce the situation of die casting non-ferrous metals.

( 1), die casting non-ferrous alloy classification hindered contraction of mixed shrinkage free shrinkage of lead alloy – the 0.2-0.3% 0.3-0.4% 0.4-0.5% of low melting point alloy tin alloy zinc alloy — 0.3-0.4% 0.4-0.6% 0.6-0.8% — 0.3-0.5% 0.5-0.7% 0.7-0.9% aluminum silicon casting non-ferrous alloy aluminum alloy alcu aluminium-magnesium system – 0.5-0.7% 0.7-0.9% 0.9-1.1% high melting point alloy aluminum zinc magnesium alloy – 0.5-0.7% 0.7-0.9% 0.9-1.1% copper alloy Read more
