Factors that Influence the Choice of Colors in Anodizing of Alloys

Anodizing is a post treatment method in aluminum die casting and black hard anodizing will make an alloy somewhat corrosion free. Die casters offer post-treatment for original equipment manufacturers, but the end consumers may feel that any color can be mixed and matched whilst anodizing aluminum. However, that is not always true. Black hard anodizing […]

A Brief Intro of Brass Die Casting

Brass die casting is a type of copper alloy die casting that has very good corrosion resistance and mechanical properties. However, owing to the need of high metal temperatures and short life of the die casting mold, this type of die casting is not widely used. Of all the alloys used in brass die casting, […]

Using Die Casting Simulation for Preventing Shrinkage Porosity

Mould filling is one of the most important stages of die casting and is done with utmost care due to the probability of several defects such as shrinkage porosity and air entrapment. The poured melt is used to compress the gas, which is discharged outside via a vent. Avoiding many of the defects such as […]

Importance of Co-Design in Die Casting

Co-designing refers to a fundamental aspect of die casting that involves collaboration among the die caster and the client for creating a product based on the required technical characteristics. This will aid in delivering a product that fits in properly with the specific technical requirements offered by the client as well as make sure it […]

3 Commonly Adopted Safety Precautions in Die Casting

The North American Die Casting Association (NADCA) says that safety precautions are to be mandatorily adopted in die casting since the personal injury rate in the industry is about twice of that in other manufacturing segments. The precautions proposed by NADCA safeguard the die casters in a foundry and make sure all the die cast […]

About Multi-Slide Die Casting Tools

The sole difference between multi-slide die casting and hot-chamber die casting is the build and operation of the casting tool and the equipment required to operate the tool. Hot-chamber casting employs a two-part tool making it costly and tough for die casters to make components with complex geometries in a foundry. However, multi-slide tooling is […]

Why Metal Injection Molding is Better than Machining

Metal Injection Molding (MIM) is a process that efficiently merges powered metallurgy and plastic injection molding. Die casters heavily relies on this process because it is capable of producing large quantities of precise complex parts with metals that are not suitable for die casting such as stainless steel and other low alloy steels. Machining process […]

The Benefits of Including a Metrology Room in Die Casting Plants

Dimensional quality of the components has become crucial in the die casting process. The presence of a metrology section in die casting companies ensures that the components meet the required dimensional quality in the production for meeting the needs of the customers. In fact, having a section dedicated for metrology is highly beneficial for the […]
