Die Casting Zinc Alloys in 2022

Die Casting Zinc Alloys

Die casting zinc alloys to offer castability, a broad range of excellent physical and mechanical properties, and finishing characteristics. The advantages of utilizing zinc alloys include thin walls, close dimensional tolerances, and variation in section design. Compared to others, die-casting zinc alloys have higher strength components.

The die maintenance is reduced and the die life is lengthened because of the lower temperatures under which zinc alloy is cast. There are several companies that manufacture a complete range of die-casting zinc alloys. One of them is the Eastern Alloys.

Die casting zinc alloys have high strength and hardness, which makes them ideal alternatives for machined, pressed, stamped, and fabricated items. Normally cast alloys are non-ferrous and there is a large number available with a wide range of physical and mechanical properties covering almost every conceivable application a designer might require. Die casting zinc alloys are among the most widely used because of their low melting point. Usually, low melting point alloys are cast in a hot chamber machine while intermediate and high melting alloys are cast in cold chamber machines.

One of the fastest and most cost-effective methods for producing a wide range of components is die casting. The major benefit from this process can be achieved if the designers were able to collaborate with the die caster at an early stage of product development and design. In order to help resolve issues that affect the tooling and production during the design phase, it is best to consult the die caster at the earliest possible time.

    A380 Aluminum versus A413 Aluminum 2022

    The two more common types of die casting aluminum used by Kinetic die Casting Company are A380 aluminum and A413 aluminum. There are reasons to use either metal.

    So here are a few of the details (http://www.kineticdiecasting.com/casting_aluminum.html):

    A380
    Availability – More
    Material cost – Less
    Flexibility – More
    Thermal Conductivity – Less
    Electrical Conductivity  РMore
    Pounds/Inch – More
    Pressure Tight – Less
    Surface Polish – Less

     

    A413
    Availability – Less
    Material cost – More
    Flexibility – Less
    Thermal Conductivity – More
    Electrical Conductivity – More
    Pounds/Inch – Less
    Pressure Tight – More
    Surface Polish – More

    A380 is the most common die casting aluminum used worldwide. Most part blue prints do not call out the aluminum type so the default is A380.

    Diecasting Metals Cost Increase March 2022

    This week, the cost of die casting aluminum alloy increased another $0.05 a pound, in one week. The diecasting metals cost increases are at 10% in the month of March 2022. Zinc alloys and ZA alloys have risen similarly. Our customers will also unfortunately have to pay higher die casting part prices Or I cannot supply them the parts.

    If you have a good die casting part supplier, pay the higher part cost. They cannot avoid these materials cost increases. Die Casting Aluminum Alloy Prices in March 2022 are Crazy.

    Aluminum Prices March 2022

    Die Casting Alloy Materials Are Crazy. I am getting calls from the customers of my competitors asking that I quote a part price. I always refuse to quote because my competitor is facing the same material cost increases I am facing. Some die casting materials, like za27, are not available today. I will have to wait a few weeks for material. I’ve never seen this before.

    In the past, prior to 2020, the die casting metal alloy prices were like gentle waves on the ocean, they go up, they come down. I have always ridden the waves in the past by not increasing or changing the part prices for material increases. But I can’t ride the increased material costs anymore.

    Today, the cost of aluminum alloy for die casting increased another $0.05 a pound. Zinc alloys have risen similarly. That is an increase that I have never seen in my 30 years in business. My customers will also unfortunately have to pay a higher part price Or I cannot supply them the parts.

    If you have a good supplier, pay the higher part cost. They cannot avoid the cost increases. Die Casting Aluminum Alloy Prices in March 2022 are Crazy.

    The Different Alloys used in Die Casting Manufacturing 2021

    Die Casting Alloys – The Different Alloys Used in Die Casting Manufacturing. Kinetic Die Casting Company uses different types of metal die casting alloys depending on the needs of our customers.

      The Die Casting Alloys we use are:

    • A360 aluminum die casting alloy
    • A380 aluminum die casting alloy
    • A383 aluminum die casting alloy
    • A413 aluminum die casting alloy
    • ZA27 die casting alloy
    • #3 zinc die casting alloy
    • #5 zinc die casting alloy

    A380 is the die casting alloy we use the most. About 80% of our parts are produced in A380. A380 is the least expensive aluminum alloy. It is very versatile for a very nice finish on a die casting part.

    A360 aluminum die casting alloy is used when corrosion resistance is required. It is used by many manufacturers whose parts are exposed to salt spray or other corrosive environments.

    A413 die casting alloy is another alloy we use to produce a lot of parts. This alloy is used in a lot of thermal conductance applications (heat sinks). It has a very nice surface finish and can be used to cast thinner walls. It has better corrosion resistance than A380.

    A383 alloy is less expensive than A413 and also is used when the die casting part wall thicknesses are thinner than normal.

    ZA27 die casting alloy is used when greater die casting part strength is needed. This die casting alloy is a marriage between aluminum and zinc.

    #3 and #5 zinc die casting alloys are the most common alloys used for zinc die casting. Many of the products that were produced in zinc are now made in aluminum or plastic. Zinc makes up less than 10% of the die casting parts made in America today.
