What Is Aluminum Die Casting
Aluminum die casting is a versatile manufacturing process for producing engineered metal parts by forcing molten metal into a mold form due to high-pressure systems. It’s a manufacturing process for producing precise, accurately smooth, and textured metal parts. The parts with the highly valued combination of lightweight and superior strength. The aluminum die-casting machines range from 18-0T to 2000T so that we can produce parts with a few grames to more than 40 pounds.
Even aluminum die casting parts can with different surface treatments, such as powder coating, plating, e-coating,chrome plating, and bright polishing, with a beautiful and protected outer layer.
Why choose aluminum die casting
Aluminum with advantages such as lighter weight, durable and so on, aluminum also is one of the most popular materials for producing functional parts and prototypes. It also offers impeccable corrosion resistance, thermal and electrical conductivity, and also maintains dimensional stability even in high temperatures and harsh environments.
Since this material with a high melting point, so aluminum die casting process is the best way to cast aluminum parts
In a detail of this metal casting process, high pressure is used to force molten metal into the mold cavity. So aluminum die casting requires to use of aluminum die casting mold, which with a mold cavity, or cavities, which is created using two hardened tool steel dies that are machined into a specific shape, are machined into a special shape.
Compared to CNC machining, aluminum die casting reduces the amount steps required for production and prototyping, resulting in lower manufacturing costs. It also ensures a high-quality surface finish and precise dimensional consistency.
This technique is especially advantageous in small and middle-size casting parts, it's widely used in industries such as automotive, lighting, medical and more.
Advantage of aluminum die casting
As a lightweight metal, the most popular reason for utilizing aluminum die casting is that it creates very lightweight parts without sacrificing strength. Aluminum die-cast parts also have more surface finishing options and can withstand higher operating temperatures than other non-ferrous materials. Aluminum die-cast parts are corrosion resistant, highly conductive, have good stiffness and strength-to-weight ratio. The aluminum dies casting process is based on rapid production that allows a high volume of die casting parts to be produced very quickly and more cost-effectively than alternative casting processes. Aluminum die casting has become the favored option for buyers worldwide.
Characteristics and Advantages of Aluminum Die Castings include:
·Have a good stiffness and strength-to-weight ratio
·Based on rapid production
·Allows a high volume of die casting parts to be produced very quickly
·Is more cost-effective than alternative casting processes
·Lightweight and Durable
·Good strength-to-weight Ratio
·Great Resistance to Corrosion
