Die Casting Alloys

Three of the Most Popular Die Casting Alloys. Aluminum is the most accepted out of all die casting alloys. Besides its lightweight features and its sturdy ability, aluminum is also found to be very inexpensive measured up to other die casting alloys. When choosing the ideal material to utilize in die casting, it is vital to have concise information as to how each alloy is different from one another. Although aluminum may have a lot of benefits and advantages compared to other materials, some die casting companies also prefer not to use aluminum owing to its high shrinkage capability and also its receptivity to high temperature.

Copper is one of the various other die casting alloys like zinc die casting available in the scientific procedure. One of the advantages of employ copper is its inflexibility and its ability to decrease ductility. Copper is also identified not be receptacle to corrosion, generating an outstanding substitute to aluminum. On the other hand, if you are looking for a type of alloy that is able to work on narrower walls compared to the effectiveness of aluminum, you can also use Zinc as an alternative. Zinc has the capability to close tolerances because of its fluidic nature that is highly influenced by high temperatures. When die casters decided Zinc as its die casting alloy, the casting is processed at a lower temperature than usual so as not to completely melt the die. As soon as the die is shaped, it is much easier for die casters to permit the result to solidify due to the material’s sensitivity towards temperature.

Hello Die Casters,
NADCA North American Die Casters Association
The North American Die Casting Association (NADCA) holds a contest every year for the best castings. We are a month out from castings being due for the 2019 International Die Casting Competition. Based on the discussion at the technical congress earlier this year, some winners may not be up to par with what Chapter 30 die casters are doing. It would be great to get castings from Chapter 30 die casters, so the judges can see the difference.

Spread the word about the die casting competition, so those die casters can enter their castings.
Submit by June 17, 2017

The following link contains the details and at the bottom of the page is the electronic entry form.

The North American Die Casting Association (NADCA) knows that competition improves the competitor. With its annual Die Casting Competition, it recognizes, rewards and publicizes the outstanding casting designs of the year. Each entry is judged on its design, quality, cost savings, ingenuity, innovation and industry-changing potential.

Entering and winning is one of the best ways to gain visibility with leading decision-makers. How can you afford not to compete?

OFFICIAL ENTRY RULES
Any number of castings may be entered. Send a separate entry form for each casting or assembly of castings. As-cast part samples are REQUIRED with each entry form.

NADCA encourages sending secondary processed samples, but only in addition to the as-cast parts.

All castings submitted for the competition MUST have approval in writing from the customer stating their permission to enter their die cast part in the competition. Entrants may request that certain information, such as customer names, be withheld from public use in exhibitions, magazine articles and other publications.
