High Pressure Castings for Aluminum Hardware Brackets vs. Aluminum Sand Castings. Aluminum hardware brackets are used in fountains, lighting fixtures, and electric fans. In construction projects, aluminum hardware brackets in the form of braces are used to hold wooden beams at the correct angle while a structure is still being built. It goes without saying that aluminum hardware brackets are used for various purposes in everyday life, so how can they be manufactured quickly enough to meet consumers’ needs?
To make aluminum hardware brackets, manufacturers can use either the pressure die casting method or sand casting, which are just two of the many methods used to cast aluminum. Pressure die casting basically involves melting the aluminum, which is then injected under pressure into a hardened steel mold or die in the shape of a bracket. Afterwards, the mold is cooled, often in water. When the aluminum has hardened, half of the mold is moved and ejector pins push out the new aluminum cast that is now a hardware bracket. Sand casting, on the other hand, involves mixing sand with binders and compacting water around metal or wooden pattern halves to produce a mold that is shaped as a bracket. The mold is then removed from the pattern, and aluminum is poured into the mold’s cavities. The mold is cooled first and afterwards, it is broken to remove the aluminum cast which has settled into the shape of the mold. Sand casting is suitable for producing both ferrous and non-ferrous castings in a wide range of sizes and shape complexity, while pressure die casting is appropriate for manufacturing small to medium non-ferrous castings of thin walls and varying complexity. The method for producing aluminum hardware brackets obviously depends on the purpose for which aluminum hardware brackets are to be used.
