What is Die Casting Porosity? (Die Casting Porosity) In order for you to know what die casting porosity is, you need to know the die casting basics. The most common form of Die Casting Porosity is a kind of factory defect in which die cast parts contain small pockets of void space and air within the metal, causing it to become porous.

Porosity in Die Casting is the air trapped by the metal inside the die casting parts. To know more, a basic knowledge of the die casting process is necessary. Die casting is a process wherein a particular amount of molten metal is put inside a shot cylinder, then it is applied (plunged) with great force with a piston so as to force the metal into a die cast mold or die cast die. During this “plunging process”, air inside the cylinder is forced along with the metal into the die casting mold. It is a very fluid turbulent process. The air forced into the mold with the metal and the metal already inside the mold is forced out of the mold through a series of gates, vents and overflows.

After this, the metal is left to cool down and harden or freeze inside the mold. The metal is then removed as a die cast part. The same process is repeated over again.

Die casting companies use metals which are non-ferrous, or do not contain Iron, as this is the highest factor for oxidation and rusting. Several examples of non-ferrous metals include zinc, aluminum, lead, Magnesium Die Casting, tin and copper. Kinetic Die Casting only uses aluminum die casting and zinc die casting.

In the worst case, die casting parts porosity, weakens die casting parts, if the voids or pockets are very large. Porosity typically matters most in pressure tight die casting parts. When the air escapes through a die casting part, it is typically caused by porosity.

The many forms of Die Casting Porosity are caused by many variables:

  • Metal and Mold Temperatures
  • Material Cleanliness
  • Die Cast Mold Design
  • Die Cast Part Design
  • Die Casting Machine Pressures
  • Die Casting Machine Shot Speed
  • Die Casting Spray or Mold Release
  • Other forms of porosity can be from “shrinkage” or wall thickness.

Aluminum Housing Castings or Aluminum Diecast Boxes are electrically conductive and can be easily be electrically grounded. Aluminum box enclosures can be manufactured with the mounting holes necessary for set up circuit boards and covers or lids to the enclosures to seal from humidity and damage to the components constructed. Die Casting Aluminum enclosures work well with die casting aluminum heatsink parts to remove and dispel heat from components.
Aluminum Diecast Boxes

Die Casting Aluminum Housings or Aluminum Diecast Boxes do not need welded seams, so they usually look better than other manufactured boxes. Depending on the size and weight of the parts, Aluminum cast boxes, aluminum diecast enclosures and aluminum housing castings made as die casting parts can be made at the rate of a few hundred to a few thousand parts each day. Aluminum Box Enclosures or Aluminum Box Housings Parts are easily powder coated.

Examples of Aluminum Diecast Hardware Brackets You finally bought your dream mirror from a nearby department store. You just can’t wait to have it installed. However, something seems to be missing. Before you mount that mirror and ask who’s the fairest of all, you need to buy brackets for it!

Diecast Hardware brackets are used either as an accessory or as an aid for furniture that need to be mounted on the wall. It assists in carrying the weight of the furniture, so that the wall wouldn’t have cracks after mounting. Mostly made of aluminum, these brackets can come in many forms and can also be installed in many ways, like towel holders that can be stuck on the wall by a special adhesive tape and mirror holders that are screwed on the wall.

One example of a diecast aluminum hardware bracket would have to be Minn Kota quick release brackets, which are easily mounted with a set of screws. It contains a secure locker system which prevents the furniture from falling off. Once the furniture is mounted with these brackets, they can also be removed easily without having to unscrew the brackets.

The C.R. LAURENCE CC5CH CRL shelf diecast brackets are also an outstanding product. These shelf brackets are mounted on the wall using adhesive tapes and optionally, with a set of screws, so they can be easily installed. This set of brackets is also made from aluminum. These are only a few examples of aluminum hardware brackets. There are lots of these in the market, so go and buy a bracket now.

Where Are Aluminum Airplane Parts Used? The popular aircraft airframe has been the most challenging function for aluminum alloys; to account the progress of the high strength alloys is as well to account the progress of air frames. Duralumin is the first high strength, high temperature treatable aluminum alloy and was utilized originally for the structure of stiff airships. Duralumin was actually an aluminum-copper-magnesium alloy. It was initiated in the country of Germany and expanded in the United States of America as alloy 17S-T. It was employed first and foremost as a sheet and plate.

As the 20th century evolved, aluminum turned out to be an important metal in aircraft parts. The cylinder mass of the engine that controlled the plane of the famous Wright brothers at Kitty Hawk in 1903 was a one piece die casting in an aluminum alloy consisting of 8% copper. The aluminum propeller blades emerged as early as 1907 and aluminum seats, covers, cast brackets, cowlings, and comparable parts were regular by the start of the World War I.

In the year 1916, L. Brequet created a scouting bomber that identified the primary utilization of aluminum in the functioning configuration of a plane. By the end of the war, Germany and the Allies used aluminum alloys intended for the constructional scaffolding of fuselage and section assemblies.

Metal alloy die castings have several advantages over their plastic counterparts. Most manufacturers of automobiles, computers, aircraft and other modern devices have considered the use of die cast metal alloy parts for their final products. Plastic component parts only entertain a few parts in some of these industries. But how do die castings compare to plastic parts? This article will try to answer this question.

Comparing Die Casting Parts to Plastic Parts

Material Characteristics
Compare Polycarbonate to A380 Aluminum alloy

Characteristic
Polycarbonate
A380 Aluminum Metal
Tensile strength

317 MPa / 46 ksi
Melting Temperature

595 C / 1100 F
Density (weight) kg/m cube

A380 aluminum die casting alloy is the most common aluminum die casting alloy. It has a ultimate tensile strength of 317 MPa (46 ksi) Plastic is one the most common manufacturing materials that are utilized for various products. However, component parts that are fabricated from plastics are not as durable as the metal castings. Plastic has a tensile strength of 55-75 MPa (11 ksi) . If you are going to compare this to metal, particularly the cast aluminum, you will find out that plastic has great chances of incurring damages. Aside from this, plastic deteriorates rapidly when consistently exposed to heat. Plastic parts are only applicable for final products that do not require too much application of stress.

On the other hand, die cast metal parts are sturdier than plastics. Metal alloys are more resistant to harmful contaminants and extreme weather conditions. They can even bar the unwanted radio frequencies and electromagnetic emissions in some devices. Metal castings are also known to be good electrical conductors; meaning, they are ideal for housing electrical junctions because the metal surfaces can be easily grounded.
