An Aluminum-Made Car

Yes, most of the gadgets we’ve seen in the older James Bond movies may be fictional, but cars like the Aston Martin Vanquish are not. In fact, more and more car manufacturers have started using aluminum car parts in producing vehicles like the Audi A8 and the Honda Insight.

What is common between James Bond and aluminum? The answer is that famous sports car brand Aston Martin. One of the cars that have been used in the movie featured aluminum exterior body panels and flooring. These aluminum car parts made the hero zoom his way on the road like the wind.

There was a time when these carmakers shied away from using aluminum parts because of concerns for costs and concerns for safety. However, with advancement in technology, aluminum parts is becoming a feasible and safe choice for production of car parts. Since some car companies are in a wait-and-see mode, production of such aluminum cars is still relatively low. Aluminum Car Parts Now. Entire Car Soon.

These car manufacturers are still quite conservative about mass producing cars out of aluminum parts because of so many technical reasons that they want to be refined first. There are many advantages to using steel that have not been answered by aluminum parts yet. This is why research is continuously being conducted by die casting companies to develop methods and techniques that can support the aluminum parts revolution in car manufacturing.

Many components though, are being experimented upon like aluminum engine blocks, aluminum cylinder heads, aluminum brackets, aluminum wheels, aluminum panels, aluminum handles, and aluminum body structures. There is also a growing use for aluminum car parts that are weight-intensive like aluminum hoods, aluminum trunks, and others.

Die Casting Part Pricing-How Die Casting Part Prices are Established in 2022

Die Casting Part Pricing – How to Die Casting Part Prices are Established.

Kinetic Die Casting Company has a specific pricing model that is similar and also different from our competitors. Here are a few issues to think about when asking for a die-casting part price.

  • Die Casting Part Size
  • Die Casting Part Weight
  • Die Casting Material Type
  • Inspection Requirements
  • Die Casting Part Quantity
  • Die Casting Part Tolerances
  • Die Casting Part Specifications
  • Die Casting Tooling Types
  • Additional Labor Needs
  • Die Casting Part Secondary Finishing
  • Other Fees

The die casting part size and weight effect the part price in a few ways, cycle times or parts per hour, the machine tonnage size required to produce the parts and the part material cost, which also relates to the die casting material type.

The inspection requirements can vary depending on if a (1) visual inspection, or a (2) dimensional inspection or a (3) penetration inspection or an (4) X-Ray inspection or a (5) pressure test inspection are required.

The part quantity has an effect because it will determine if some of the many “one time” or “minimum charge” fees are covered in the production lot.

Die casting part specifications and tolerances add additional labor to a simple casting through inspection and documentation.

The die casting tool can effect the part price by how many cavities are in the tool, how many slides are in the tool, whether additional labor can be removed by the tool, and also if a trim die is available. The mold type also has an effect in the set up time for tooling.

Many times additional labor are needed to complete the die casting part, like threading holes, which also adds to the part cost. Can we use high speed production machining or do we need to use CNC machines.

If there is a polish, ball burnish, bead blast, paint or anodize requirement, that will add to the part cost.

Other fees, some die casting companies charge a “Set Up Fees” or an “Environmental Fees” or an “Energy Surcharge Fees” or a packaging or pallet fee, we do not have any of these hidden fees.

    How are Aluminum Military Parts Made in 2022?

    How are Aluminum Military Parts Made. It is not surprising anymore if you find out that even military devices have aluminum parts. Indeed, this is true. The operations of military personnel can never be complete and successful without the use of this material. Some of the most common military parts made in aluminum include armored vehicle fire suppression system housing, missile nose piece, fire sensor housing, pump parts, and a lot more.

    However, as compared to other aluminum-made materials, aluminum military parts are made differently. It greatly depends on the military device to which it will be attached or used into. In short, aluminum military products are in a made-to-order basis. Unlike other parts that are easily available in the market, a person or an organization that needs military parts needs to order one first before they can have the part they need.

    More often than not, an aluminum military part manufacturer works on a specific part in less than a month from the date of order. In most cases, the order can be made in around two weeks’ time. Once the manufacturing of the part is finished, they are conveniently shipped to whoever made the order. With all these, aluminum military parts are made in a longer period than other devices. This is mere because they need to be carefully crafted to promote efficiency at all times. These military parts cannot afford to become failures.
