Kinetic Die Casting Company Makes Aluminum Auto Parts – A few months ago, an automotive parts customer contacted me; he makes aluminum hydraulic pumps for cars. He asked if he could move his die casting tooling inserts from his current die casting supplier to Kinetic Die Casting Company. He is getting over 50% leakage rejects from his current die casting supplier due to porosity. His product is prone to porosity because it has very thick material areas and very thin material areas. It would take a special effort to improve his production part process.


We gave him a price that was higher than he was currently paying and he agreed. What happened then was, he sent us his tooling inserts and we mounted his die casting inserts in our mold base and made his aluminum automotive pump parts. He was shocked at the difference. He had very few parts that leaked. We succeeded because we process every die casting job as a special job. Our single piece flow has also become single order flow.

I received this same request from that same customer this week, on a different part. He is also losing over 50% of his parts due to porosity leakage in his pumps. He now knows we can help him. The part cost is higher, but his total cost is much lower because he has fewer failures in his product.

Contact Kinetic Die Casting if you are getting bad products and we will help you.

Die Castings used for many Aircraft Parts. Demand for diecast airplane parts is increasing in the aircraft industry. Airplanes need lightweight materials for mobility. Moreover, planes require durability and resistance to several stresses while flying. Among metals, aluminum is used to serve as frames or skeletons of the aircraft.

In the aircraft industry, the strength of aluminum is significantly increased by high pressure die casting. Aluminum die castings used for airplane parts are strong against torsion and expansion stresses. These are important considerations since a flying aircraft is subjected to several forces.

In the machining process, there is always an associated imperfection called die casting porosity. This is the amount of gas that combines with the solidifying metal, as it cools in the mold. Porosity is characterized by the size and number of air bubbles inside the finished product. There are three levels of porosity. The second and third levels are unacceptable when it comes to machining airplane parts. This is to guarantee safety of the passengers.

Die castings used for airplane parts are usually made of different aluminum alloys. The two most common die casting alloys for aircraft parts are A380 and A413. For example, Al 7075 is commonly used for making frames because of its toughness.

Die Casting Tooling. Aluminum die casting is a manufacturing process used to fulfill orders for large quantities of small to medium sized metal parts. This dependable process is used for high volume products made by the metalworking industry.

This process called die casting starts off with molten metal. The molten metal is then forced into the Die Casting Molds in a high pressure environment. After which, they are then machined into dies. This process results in the metal parts to be consistent in their dimensions, with high quality and good detail. For most of the time, die casting makes use of non ferrous metals such as tin, aluminum, zinc and copper among others but ferrous metals can also be used in this process. However, harder and stronger metals such as steel and iron cannot be used in this process; instead they are used to make Die Casting Molds.

These die casting molds come in a number of different shapes and sizes. Some can be made as single cavity molds which can make one part for every cycle or multiple cavity molds which can make several parts in a single cycle. Their shape and design would determine the cost of these molds; the more complex the design then the higher the cost of the mold would be. They can be very expensive, ranging from hundreds of dollars to thousands of dollars per mold.

Today, Sunday, May 13th is Mothers Day 2018.

Happy Mothers Day

Why do we celebrate Mothers Day? For “the person who has done more for you than anyone in the world” – Anna Jarvis. The US holiday of Mother’s Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother at Saint Andrew’s Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia. Saint Andrew’s Methodist Church has an International Mother’s Day Shrine now to remember. Her campaign to make “Mother’s Day” a recognized holiday in the United States began in 1905, the year her mother, Ann Reeves Jarvis, died. The mother, Ann Jarvis, had been a peace activist who cared for wounded soldiers on both sides of the American Civil War. Ann created Mother’s Day Work Clubs to address public health issues. Anna Jarvis wanted to honor her mother by continuing the work she started and to set aside a day to honor all mothers.

Traditional gifts to Mothers include: flowers, candy, a dinner at a nice restaurant or a spa treatment. Whatever you decide to do for your mother, remember to do something.
