The steel die cavity is sprayed with a liquid release agent to prevent the molten metal from sticking to the steel cavity. Much like the cook will spray a pan before baking a cake. The spray dissipates into steam because the die is very hot. Porosity is natural in the Die Casting Process. The molten metal is squirted at a very fast speed and under extreme pressure into the die. It is like a running water hose with a thumb on the nozzle. The metal is moving very rapidly as it is forcibly injected into a steel die cavity, the metal picks up voids and air bubbles from the steam and the turbulence of the injection. The metal is squeezed into the die with a piston to evacuate or to remove and compress most of the voids and air pockets. Those voids and air pockets are called die casting porosity. It is a natural occurrence in the production of die casting parts. To read more about die casting porosity, review our web page: http://www.kineticdiecasting.com/porosity.html

What is the High Pressure Aluminum Die Casting Process?
Cold Chamber Die Casting Machine

The image pictured above depicts a Cold Chamber Die Casting Machine as it makes parts. The term “Cold Chamber Die Casting” refers to a separate metal melting furnace. The High Pressure Die Casting, cold chamber die casting process follows this sequence:

1. Look at the image above
2. The die casting machine opens the die casting mold.
3. The prior part is removed and the die cast mold is sprayed for the next part
4. The aluminum is poured using a ladle into a shot cylinder
5. The shot piston injects the metal into the die casting mold.
6. The machine opens and the process starts again.

What is Sand Casting? Sand casting is a metal part manufacturing process that uses sand as the form or mold that shapes the metal castings. In sand casting, the sand is moistened and the pattern is pressed into the sand. The preparation and bonding process of the sand is the most critical step in the process. This technique is usually used for low volume production.

The sand casting pattern is made of wood or metal, such as aluminum. The patterns are generally not destroyed but are made permanent to be reused up to a few thousand times. Sand casting is used when lower quantities are needed and lower quality is acceptable. Manufacturing companies use sand casting to make aluminum parts if the project only needs a few hundred parts.
