Die Casting Parts Products
Die casting is a process of forcing molten metal under high pressure into a mold cavity. The mold cavity is the shape of the desired part. Most die castings are aluminum, magnesium, or zinc. Depending on the type of metal being cast, a hot or cold chamber machine is used.
The metal dies can be expensive, which tends to limit the process to higher volume production. Die casting is well suited for small to medium size parts. Die castings are characterized by a very good surface finish and dimensional consistency.
LIKE offers clients a variety of finishing process options for casted parts.
ADVANTAGES OF DIE CASTING
Good dimensional accuracy
Good surface finish
Die casting can achieve thinner walls than investment casting
Efficient use of raw material and fast production rate
DIE CAST METALS: ALUMINUM, ZINC, AND MAGNESIUM
DIE CASTING ALLOY SELECTION
Die-casting alloy selection is based on the application and functionality of the product or part in question. Different metals have their own characteristics.
BASIC GUIDELINES FOR ALUMINUM, ZINC AND MAGNESIUM ALLOYS:
Relatively lightweight (270% lighter than zinc)
High resistance to corrosion
Good mechanical properties
Good dimensional stability
Considered as the easiest to cast
Longer tool life due to lower temperatures and pressures
Ability to be produced in thin wall thicknesses and tighter tolerances
Good for plating and coating
Lightest weight among commonly used structural metal (50%) lighter than aluminum
High strength to weight ratio
Excellent damping ability
EMI shielding ability
