What is the Die Casting Process? The Die Casting Part Production Process Explained.

Kinetic Die Casting Company uses a manufacturing process called “Die Casting” to make aluminum die casting parts and zinc die casting parts. But, what is the die casting part production process? Here is a GIF image I have on our home page to demonstrate:

“Aluminum die casting is an aluminum metal parts production process where molten aluminum metal alloy is injected into a steel die, under extreme pressure, to manufacture aluminum parts” (Substitute the word “zinc” for “aluminum” in zinc die casting part production process)

Another GIF example example is on this web page:

Cold Chamber Die Casting Process

The image pictured above depicts a Cold Chamber Die Casting Machine as it makes parts. The term “Cold Chamber Die Casting” refers to a separate metal melting furnace. The High Pressure Die Casting, cold chamber die casting process follows this sequence:

Look at the die casting machine image above

  1. The die casting machine opens the die casting mold.
  2. The prior part is removed and the die cast mold is sprayed for the next part
  3. The aluminum is poured using a ladle into a shot cylinder
  4. The shot piston injects the metal into the die casting mold.
  5. The machine opens and the process starts again.

Aluminum Die Casting Parts vs Plastic Injection Molded Parts.

Plastic Injection molding and aluminum die casting are similar in a lot of ways:

  • Both require a mold or tool to produce parts.
  • The tooling cost is very similar in both industries.
  • Both processes inject material into a mold to make parts.
  • Both processes can make hundreds or thousands of parts every day.

Plastic Injection Molded Parts
Advantages

  • Plastic parts are produced at a lower temperature than aluminum parts, plastic melts at only a few hundred degrees Fahrenheit
  • Plastic Parts weigh less than aluminum die casting parts.

Disadvantages:

  • Plastic is not typically biodegradable
  • Plastic parts require metal inserts to hold a thread for screws.
  • Plastic does not block EMI/RF waves
  • Plastic Parts are not as strong.

Aluminum Die Casting Parts

Disadvantages

  • Aluminum parts weigh more than plastic.
  • Aluminum parts are produced in only one color and need paint or powder coat for color.

Advantages

  • Aluminum naturally shields EMI/RF waves.
  • Holes can be directly threaded into the parts.
  • Features can be machined into aluminum.
  • Aluminum has great thermal transference properties.
  • Aluminum is a natural conductor of electricity.
  • Aluminum material is environmentally friendly and can be recycled easily when done.
  • All aluminum alloys (360, 380, 383, and 413) are made from recycled materials.
  • Aluminum parts are stronger than plastic

Aluminum Die Casting Handles are used as drawer pulls, door handles, and basically anything that can be opened or closed that requires a handle to be used. Initially, homeowners think that the best aluminum handles or aluminum die casting hardware are those that can match the color and texture of the furniture on which it is used on. While this may be true, it is not the most efficient method. Handles that match a furniture’s theme are usually made from wood or plastic. This makes the handles prone to breakage especially if the furniture is used multiple times in a single day. It is therefore recommended to use aluminum handles on all furniture.

Aluminum die cast handles have a certain degree of quality that surpasses most materials used for the same purpose. For instance, these aluminum handles do not break or crack under extreme pressure whereas wood disintegrates over time. Also, these aluminum handles would require an excess amount of pressure before they start to bend. This makes them ideal for doors and heavy-duty storage compartments. In terms of aesthetics, these handles do not have much to offer since their looks are simply straightforward. They usually come in a silver or black color with a matte or satin anodized finish.

Aluminum handles can be purchased in hardware stores, online stores, and DIY stores. An entire section is oftentimes dedicated to handles and a majority of the handles being sold is of the aluminum variety. They come in different shapes, sizes, and forms. Still, they all share the same properties and it is expected that all of them will last for a very long time.

Die Casting Lighting Parts

Aluminum Lighting Fixtures and Parts have been produced for many years. Aluminum Die Casting Lighting fixtures are less expensive than other manufacturing processes. Aluminum light fixtures have good thermal properties and are used in applications where high temperature power supplies and bulbs are used. In former years, lighting housings were welded together, which was labor intensive, costly, and had limitations on the shapes available. Aluminum Lighting Fixture Parts can be many shapes and sizes, used in many lighting applications, and can be manufactured net shape. Aluminum weighs 1/3 of a comparable steel part. The aluminum part would cost less to ship due to the weight. Aluminum lighting fixtures can be produced in quantities of a few hundred to thousands of aluminum lighting fixtures each day. Aluminum fixtures are electrically conductive and can be grounded.

aluminum part What sensation aluminum has become in the hardware market is no secret. The metal and its derivatives are being widely being used in not only huge companies such as automobiles and aeronautics but also in small scale usage such as boxes and enclosures for mundane activities. Here is guide to the benefiting properties which make aluminum a favorite over its other metal and alloy counterparts, especially when it comes to boxes and enclosures. This article would also successfully hope to throw light on different purpose for which the boxes are being manufactured for.

DURABILITY
As of now, Aluminum is the most durable and its product the most stable, as compared to any other metal and its products if gauged on the scale of practical use. The aluminum boxes and enclosure, whether big or small are highly resistant to corrosive reactions and this one property is largely responsible for aluminum’s long life span.

PROTECTS THE STORED MATERIAL
Also, Aluminum alloy and the derivatives obtained from it have a very low reactivity when they come in contact with air. There may be many elements and metals which are much lighter and durable than aluminum but lose out because they react vigorously when kept in the atmosphere. These highly reactive metals cannot be used to make something for casual use like normal boxes. Aluminum, being low on reactivity protects the stored material inside form reactants and attacks from outside.

LIGHTER AND GOOD TEXTURE
Furthermore, Aluminum is very light as compared to other alloys/metals. This is one reason that huge enclosures which to be transported over long distances are made out of aluminum so that loading and unloading is a much easier task.
