The Different Alloys Used in Die Casting Manufacturing in 2020

Die Casting Alloys – The Different Alloys Used in Die Casting Manufacturing. Kinetic Die Casting Company uses different types of metal die casting alloys depending on the needs of our customers.

    The Die Casting Alloys we use are:

  • A360 aluminum die casting alloy
  • A380 aluminum die casting alloy
  • A383 aluminum die casting alloy
  • A413 aluminum die casting alloy
  • ZA27 die casting alloy
  • #3 zinc die casting alloy
  • #5 zinc die casting alloy

A380 is the die casting alloy we use the most. About 80% of our parts are produced in A380. A380 is the least expensive aluminum alloy. It is very versatile for a very nice finish on a die casting part.

A360 aluminum die casting alloy is used when corrosion resistance is required. It is used by many manufacturers whose parts are exposed to salt spray or other corrosive environments.

A413 die casting alloy is another alloy we use to produce a lot of parts. This alloy is used in a lot of thermal conductance applications (heat sinks). It has a very nice surface finish and can be used to cast thinner walls. It has better corrosion resistance than A380.

A383 alloy is less expensive than A413 and also is used when the die casting part wall thicknesses are thinner than normal.

ZA27 die casting alloy is used when greater die casting part strength is needed. This die casting alloy is a marriage between aluminum and zinc.

#3 and #5 zinc die casting alloys are the most common alloys used for zinc die casting. Many of the products that were produced in zinc are now made in aluminum or plastic. Zinc makes up less than 10% of the die casting parts made in America today.

Zinc Die Casting Tooling Facts in 2020

Zinc Die Casting Tooling Facts. Zinc die casting tooling is a technique to form molten zinc into a shape using molds called dies or die casts. The tooling is the mold utilized in the procedure, and it is largely composed of a cover and ejector. The zinc is melted into molten form and then powerfully emptied into the cover die with the container bearing the wanted pattern. The melted zinc settles on the mold and toughens. Later, it is removed through the ejector. Die casts for zinc can have added features such as trim casts, inserts and multiple cavities reliant on what needs to be formed.
There is a request for

because zinc has plenty of perfect characteristics:

  • It is very dense and does not take up much space related to other like materials
  • It is a sturdy and non-corrosive die casting alloy
  • It is extremely force-resistant
  • It is easily moldable into wires, thin walls and other complex designs
  • It can reach countless textures that other materials cannot attain
  • It takes lower heat to liquefy it for casting
  • It is the easiest material for die casting
  • It can remain malleable when melted for a long time
  • It can be added to other metals and elements to improve their condition
  • Zinc die cast tooling is made of tough materials to safeguard that the liquefied zinc will be correctly shaped into the anticipated form. There are likely mistakes in die casting such as porosity, uneven zinc distribution, etc. A great zinc die caster will be extremely cautious in following the normal guidelines so that quality zinc items are manufactured.

    The Casting Process in 2020

    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.

    Are Aluminum Die Casting Parts stronger and cheaper than Steel in 2020?

    Are aluminum die casting parts stronger and cheaper than steel?

    How can an aluminum die cast part be stronger than a steel weldament? Kinetic Die Casting, Inc. makes an aluminum die casting Boomerang cam lever part for a lift manufacturer that once was a two pound steel welded unit. This unit consisted of two steel plates, 1/8″ thick, with holes drilled, tapped, and welded to steel spacers with a bushing at each end, then painted. Occasionally, these units would fail in the field. Manufacturing costs ran about $7.00 per part in production quantities of 1,000 each week. Another difficulty is that it took three to four weeks to make the first steel part and only a few 100 could be produced a week. This hindered increased sales.

    Kinetic Die Casting now produces these parts in aluminum die casting that weigh only 3/4 pounds; the steel unit weighed over two pounds. The aluminum die casting parts are stronger (3x greater axial load) and more reliable. There is no need for paint on the aluminum die casting parts. The Kinetic Die Casting part price of each die casting unit is less than $3.00.

    Kinetic Die Casting can help you develop an aluminum die casting that will reduce weight, increase strength, and cost you less money.

    Advantages of the Aluminum Die Cast Part over the Steel Weldament:

    • 3x greater axial load strength.
    • Fewer part failures in the field and fewer returns to the OEM.
    • Part weight is 2.5x less in aluminum saving money in shipping cost.
    • Production quantities (1,000’s) within a few days instead of weeks as before.
    • Production rate is faster as an aluminum die cast part.
    • Raw part manufacturing cost is 2.3x less as an aluminum die cast part.
    • Finishing cost is less as an aluminum die cast part.
    • Better looking parts as a die cast part.
