Die casting parts: Using Cold-chamber machines in die casting

Die casting parts: Using Cold-chamber machines in die casting. Producing high quality die casting parts is no walk in the park. It needs the use of the right kind of method and the right type of machine. Most die casts are employed by the use of either hot-chamber machines or cold chamber machines. This article will outline the die casting parts involved in cold chamber machines. Like the hot-chamber machine, the efficiency of the cold chamber machine is evaluated using its capacity to employ the needed amount of clamping force required for die casting.

Cold-chamber machines are preferably employed when the chosen casting alloy cannot be handled and used with a hot chamber machine. Examples of these alloys include aluminium, and zinc alloys with a large composition of copper, magnesium and aluminium. The cold-chamber machine acts by first melting the metal in a separate compartment. Next, an exact amount of molten metal is transferred from the melting furnace to the cold chamber machine where the metal is then introduced into an injection cylinder which is an unheated shot chamber. The shot is forced into the die via a mechanical or hydraulic piston. Although it is able to handle aluminum-based alloys, the cold-chamber machine has a slower cycle time compared to the hot-chamber machine.
