When our customers buy die casting tooling, they have an option to buy single or multiple cavity tools. In die casting, we are limited in the number of parts we make in a die casting shot. “Shot” refers to a single event in the die casting production shot cycle. The die casting shot cycle is: Die Open, Spray, Die Close, Inject Metal, Open Die, Eject Part and Repeat (More in another article). A shot takes about a minute. With a single cavity tool, we make one part each shot, or one part a minute or 60 parts an hour. If our die casting tool has more than one cavity, we make the proportionate number of parts. A two cavity, multiple cavity die casting tool produces 120 parts an hour and four cavity die cast tooling produces 240 parts an hour.

The more parts we can produce in an hour, the lower the labor cost in the die casting part price. Part prices are lower with a multiple cavity tool.

Die Casting Lighting Fixtures
. In any house, building and other man made structure that is covered or in the dark, it will need artificial lighting so that it becomes hospitable and safe. Both outdoor and indoor lighting is essential in any place where people reside because people rely on light to get things done. For those which don’t receive any natural lighting, Aluminum Lighting Fixtures are the solution to this problem. Most, if not all housing and buildings make use of this feature and aluminum is a great choice for this because it is light in weight so that it can easily be installed or replaced and at the same time, it is durable so it will last longer.

Of course, Aluminum Lighting Fixtures should be made in vast quantities at a time because structures, especially buildings, would require a lot of these artificial lighting equipment. To achieve this, the best method in creating lighting fixtures is with die casting. This process can turn the aluminum into the finished product in no time as the metal is melted and using molds and castings, can be structured into the proper shapes and sizes.

When it comes to Aluminum Lighting Fixtures, die casting is the cheapest, most reliable way to achieve high quality results. And since this method makes use of the same mold, the resulting products are always consistent when it comes to the dimensions and the quality. Fast and efficient, die casting has become very popular not only with making Aluminum Lighting Fixtures, but with other parts as well.

Kinetic Die Casting Company (kineticdc) makes aluminum parts and zinc parts using diecasting tooling aka die casting tooling or die casting molds. There are several possible items that fall under the heading as tooling. In the following weeks, I will be discussing the following terms used as die casting tooling:
– Complete Mold, Complete Die Casting Die
– Unit Die Tools (DME)
– Unit Die Holder
Die Casting Trim Dies
– Die Casting Cavity Inserts “Tooling Inserts”
– Mold base (moldbase)

Last week, I wrote about Die Casting Tooling Inserts.
This week I write about:

Die Casting Trim Dies
The die casting trim die saves time, labor and money making die casting parts. During the die casting manufacturing process, molten metal is forced into the die casting mold through the shot hole, this uses considerable temperature and pressure. The molten metal is forced into the die cavities. The gases escape ahead of the metal out gas vents. Where the metal enters the cavity is called the gate. The air and gas in the tool escapes out of the tool through over-flows and vents. There is also excess metal in holes and around the edges called flash. The flash, gates, vents and over-flows need to be removed from the casting. This can be labor intensive using files, drills, deburr tools and sanders. A trim die automates the trimming process.

This was a four part Die Casting Tooling Series:

  1. Complete Molds, Complete Die Casting Dies
  2. Die Casting Unit Die Tools (DME)
  3. Die Casting Cavity Inserts “Tooling Inserts”
  4. Die Casting Trim Dies

– Mold base (moldbase)

Last week, I wrote about Unit Die Tools for Die Casting. This week I write about:

Die Casting Tooling Inserts
The terms “Cavities” or “Inserts” are the terms used to indicate a tool that is the least part of a die casting tool used to make die casting parts. These tooling cavities are fitted into a holder, a unit die or a mold base, before the tool can be mounted in the die casting machine.

Please review my previous articles on “Complete Die Casting Dies” and “Die Casting Unit Die Tools” to see what I mean about mounting the mold into the machine.

The Cavity Insert Tool does not have an ejector plate or ejector pins. These items will need to be fabricated prior to fitting the inserts into the holder. Inserts are somewhat small, the most common size is 6×6 inches weighing less than 30 pounds. In comparison, a unit die weighs over 100 pounds and a mold base can weigh 2000 pounds. Purchasing Tooling Inserts is the least expensive avenue into getting die casting parts. The downside is the die casting supplier owns the holder required to make parts.

Next Thursday… Trim Dies
