Complete Die Casting Mold

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 (dme)
– Unit Die Holder
– Trim Die
– Cavity Inserts “Inserts”
– Mold base (moldbase)

A Complete Die Casting Mold
The terms “Complete Mold” or “Complete Die” are the terms used to indicate a tool that is complete and ready to make die casting parts. The complete die casting tool fits, “as is”, into the die casting machine. This complete mold consists of a set of cavity inserts mounted inside a mold base. The moldbase has a shot hole to accommodate the shot sleeve (the tube used to inject molten metal). The moldbase also has rails so the the mold can be clamped into the die casting machine. The moldbase also has an ejector plate with ejector pins to “eject” the die casting part from the die casting tool. Inside the mold base are cavity inserts that provide the mirror image of the shape of the final die casting part. These inserts are heat treated to a greater hardness so they can withstand the higher heat and higher pressure of injected molten metal.
