Introduction of Die Casting Process and Application of Die Casting

- Aug 09, 2018-

Die casting is a method in which molten metal is forced into a mold cavity under high pressure. The metal hardens to achieve the desired shape. In the most recent period, die-cast plastic molded parts were replaced because they are cheaper and lighter than die-cast parts. Die casting can use the process of a cold room or a hot chamber.

Die casting is a ubiquitous non-consumptive technique in which metal is forced into the mold cavity under high pressure. Die-casting molds are known as various sizes, shapes and wall thicknesses in castings that can be used repeatedly. The molten metal is injected at high pressure and high speed, which helps in the production of castings, smooth and precise mold of the original mold. The pressure is maintained on the mold until the hot metal solidifies. When the metal is hardened, the mold is opened and the die casting is taken out.


There are several variations that can be used to produce castings for the basic process of a particular application. These measures include:

Squeeze Casting - The method of casting molten alloys is that no turbulence and gas retention at high pressure produces high quality, dense, heat treated parts.

Semi-solid forming - Provides a dense, low porosity, heat treated casting during the semi-solid metal blank casting process.


Die casting application

Die casting is the most suitable cast medium component with complex details. Die-casting technology is mainly used in the manufacture of consumer goods, commercial and industrial products, such as cars, toys, sink faucet parts, connector housings, gears and other die-casting parts from non-ferrous metals such as aluminum, magnesium and so on.
