Die casting parts and the alloys used to make them. When undergoing die casting, the type of metal alloy used determines the specific type of die casting that should be employed and the quality by which the die casting parts are made. To give you an idea of which metal alloys to use for you to arrive at your desired casting part, take note of the advantages and disadvantages of using these metal alloys.
Zinc is the easiest alloy to cast because it is highly ductile and has high impact strength and can be easily plated. The low melting point of zinc makes it convenient to be used for small casting parts and is expected to last long.
Aluminum is a lightweight alloy that contains a high stability to be molded into complicated shapes and sizes. It is known to be very resistant to corrosion and it is noted for its chemical and physical properties such as high electrical and thermal conductivity as well as high temperature tolerance.
Magnesium is well known to be machined easily, besides being the lightest alloy to be die cast, this metal also has extraordinary strength to weight ratio.
The high hardness of Copper coupled with its high corrosion resistance provides excellent sheer stress resistance and strong dimensional stability like that of steel.
Alloys made from Lead and Tin are high density and are used for production of parts with exceptionally close dimensions.
