Outgassing in Die Casting: Causes and Prevention

Outgassing is a process by which the trapped gases are released through a powder coating in the curing process. The passing of gas through this coating can result in the formation of small holes or pinholes. The occurrence of such pinholes can cause moisture and corrosive substances to come in contact with the surface thus […]

What is Vacuum Impregnation and Why it is Important for Die Cast

Durable die cast metal plays an integral role in the interior and exterior of automobiles. The automobile segment needs components that are completely sealed and safeguards against external threats like corrosive fluidic agents and moisture. Using lightweight raw material and electronic parts, which provide higher miles per gallon, monitors safety systems and maintains a uniform […]

What Aspects are Considered in Mold Design Phase of Die Cast Mold Making

Prior to beginning the mold design phase in high-pressure die casting, the foundries gauge the viability of producing the component. In fact, two aspects are looked for when the engineers design the mold and these are the dimensional aspects and component geometry. For calculating the casting volume and the opening of the die cavity, the […]

Inspection Methods Used for Identifying Defects in Castings

Ensuring the quality of the casted components is critical in the process of die casting. This is done mostly in the post casting stages, where the components are subjected to different examination procedures. This will help in identifying the defects in the casted components and apply the necessary fixes before shipping them off to the […]

Solving Adhesion Issues in Post Die Cast Processes

The components produced during die casting are subjected to a series of post-casting operations such as painting, and application of adhesives and polymers. Mostly, these secondary coatings are applied to the castings in order to improve its key physical properties and shield it from future defects. At times, there occur numerous issues with these post-casting […]
