Aluminium Die Casting
Aluminium die casting is a process manufacturing process where aluminium (or aluminium alloys) are molted under high pressure to produce and custom, defined, smooth and textured-surface parts of the desired shape. This process can be executed through either the hot chamber or cold chamber process – with the latter being more common due to aluminium’s high melting point of 1150 degrees Fahrenheit.
With the use of steel mold to produce large quantities of castings rapidly, the aluminium die casting process is relatively straightforward. Aluminium is first molted using high-pressure techniques. Then, the casting cycle begins with two die halves being tightly clamped together by a die casting press, followed by the injection of molten aluminium into the die cavity. Once it solidifies, the shape is formed, and the die halves are drawn apart for the casting to be ejected.
