Die Casting Porosity and Its Causes in 2023

Die Casting Porosity and Its Causes. Die Casting porosity is one of the most common defects in the die casting manufacturing industry. What is die casting porosity? Die Casting porosity is a kind of die casting factory imperfection in which the die cast parts have tiny spaces which covers air within the metal – henceforth, the die cast parts become porous. The porosity of die casting parts could weaken the parts itself if the spaces or voids are very big.

To clearly understand the causes of the porosity one must know the basic of the die casting procedure. In a nutshell, die casting procedure includes molding molten metal by placing it inside a short cylinder, and then a great force is applied by a piston connected on the cylinder, pushing the molten metal so it would take the form of the die cast die or die cast mold. During this process, the metal is forced along with the air inside of the cylinder to the die casting mold.

Die casting porosity could be added by several factors like the following:

Die casting machine pressures.

Temperature of the metal and the mold.

The cleanliness of the materials used.

Design of the die casting mold.

Design of the die casting part.

The shot speed of the die casting machine utilized.

Die casting mold release or die casting spray

Die casting manufacturers use metals that are non-ferrous or metals that don’t have iron. It is because iron content is the chief reason for oxidation and rusting. Non-ferrous metals include magnesium, tin, lead, copper, zinc and aluminum.

    Optimal Die Casting Production part Quantity in 2023?

    Optimal Die Casting Production Part Quantity? “I need to buy several thousands of parts to buy die castings”. That is the most common myth or false belief people have regarding the optimal die casting part production quantity. We believe, the optimum production quantity of die casting parts is, the quantity of parts you need to buy.

    Unfortunately, many die casting companies also believe the “high quantity only” myth. Some die casting companies perpetuate that myth to force their customers into buying more parts than they need. They refuse smaller quantity purchase orders unless their customers pay a very high “set-up charge”. Sometimes, they will push out delivery of lower part quantities to over 12 weeks, in an effort to dissuade the lower quantity part purchase orders. Then sometimes the part quality is “lacking” but the parts are needed so badly, the sub-quality parts are accepted because we do not have 12 more weeks to wait for replacement parts.

    Kinetic Die Casting is thrilled to accept die casting part purchase orders of any quantity. We will accept part purchase orders with deliveries of 10,000 parts or less. Many of our part purchase orders have part deliveries of less than 1,000 parts. In fact, many of our aerospace part purchase orders have deliveries of less than 100 parts and sometimes less than 10 parts.

    Our part deliveries range from four to six (4-6) weeks for raw castings. No matter what quantity you want, as long as it is less than 10,000 parts. In most cases we will ship your parts in less than six weeks, if we do not need to wait for outside processes to hold up our part delivery.

    In most production part purchase orders, we ship your parts the day we make your parts. We do not have departmental delays that can take several days or weeks to process the parts after the parts are produced.

    Our optimal die casting part production quantity, is the quantity you want to buy. Contact us today for a competitive price. Your delivery will be less than six weeks.

    Low pressure die casting is similar to sand casting. Gravity is used fill the molten metal into the mold. This process is much slower, about five minutes or more per part (less than 100 parts per day) than high pressure die casting (more than 500 parts per day), about a part every minute. The part cost for high pressure die casting is much less than low pressure die casting.
