Casting Process

Casting is the process of molding metals into different shapes and sizes to create metal parts. One of the oldest casting methods is gravity casting. Gravity casting uses gravity to make sure that all the parts of the mold is filled by the melted metal like aluminum or zinc. A gating system is produced to ensure a good flow of liquid metal. Basically, all you will need is a gating system a good two piece mold and the melted aluminum. After the liquid aluminum is poured into the mold, it will be left to cool. Even with this simple process, complicated pipe designs may be possible by casting pipes into the mold. However, because you will primarily rely on gravity, it is not ensured that the metal will seep into all the parts of the mold. An inferior plate may be produced. Gravity casting can produce as many as 100 parts in a day.

On the other hand, die casting will surely produce an accurate model of the planned metal fixture. This is because it uses high pressure to pump the melted aluminum into the cold chamber mold. Also, the high pressure ensures the smooth and shiny surface of aluminum parts. Die casting can make 500 to thousands of parts in a day.
