Aluminium Die Casting
When choosing a die casting material, there are a number of factors to consider, including strength, durability, and cost. Two of the most popular materials used in precision die casting are zinc and aluminium. Zinc is more malleable than aluminium, so it can be easier to work with. If you need to make complex shapes or tight tolerances, zinc die casting may be a better option.
Aluminium, on the other hand, offers a more lightweight option without sacrificing strength, making it ideal for applications where these properties are required.
There are many organizations that utilize aluminum die casting in their manufacturing process. The automotive industry is one of the largest users of custom aluminum die casting components, as they are often used in the engine block, transmission case, heat sink and electronic cover.
How Aluminium Die Casting Works
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 die casting 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.
