Die casting tooling is also known as die casting dies, die casting molds or insert die. Die casting tooling also comes in different sizes, values, and styles. Die casting tooling comes either with a single cavity or multiple cavities. The cost for die cast tooling varies for trim dies and cavity inserts.
Die casting tooling can be damaged and wear off from erosion if the cavity inserts are soft. It requires expertise and understanding on how to mold tooling for aluminum. Kinetic Die Casting Company makes die cast tooling.
Die casting tooling insert is the cheapest form of die cast tooling. It requires heat treatment to extend its tooling life. The die cast tooling insert can wear away and be easily damaged due to erosion of the molten metal. There are die casting toolmakers that don’t use enough steel. Therefore it results to low potential life of the inserts.
Inserts must be mounted into a holder that allows the aluminum to inject into the insert. A pathway should be provided for the metal to go in. These holders are commonly called as family die, unit die or mold base.
If you can’t get yourself good quality die casting tooling inserts for your aluminum because it is expensive, try to get a prototype. The prototype insert is can also be used to test and create a design. It is somehow less expensive compared to a hardened cavity insert and it takes less time to produce. However, this tool can be damaged easily and since it is not as good as a steel insert, it can’t be modified.
