The Different Alloys Used in Die Casting Manufacturing in 2020

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.

Machining Aluminum 2020

Aluminum Parts Machining Differs from Steel Parts Machining. Aluminum can be used in many ways. However there are different ways on how you can work with it. Aluminum parts machining requires less power compared to steel parts or cast iron parts because they are light weight.

Aluminum parts machining can be different in cast iron machining. It’s the type of tools and tooling technologies that you will use will make a difference.

Kinetic Die Casting Company makes aluminum die cast parts. If you are working with aluminum parts, the spindle of the machine should be strong and forceful. Spindles require higher speeds along with a lesser low-end torque compared to machining other metals like steel. Also, the spindle should be stiff because it will work in very fast conditions. Other experts on this field recommend the use of HSK tapers to ensure accuracy and rigidity. Moreover, if you are using very fast tools, rotating inertia can be reduced with the use of closed-loop spindles powered by a motor.

Furthermore, it requires little cutting forces if you are working out with aluminum parts. The machine has to be well-damped and stiff.

Since you are working with high speeds, there’s a chance of thermal growth. It can create a major problem if you are working out with light metals. It can lead to a major problem if you are working with light metal parts like aluminum.

Find yourself a machine with thermal control system. A cooling system is recommended in order to reduce the frictional heat in the bearings when the higher spindle speeds up. Also, you must protect the spindle against coolant penetration by sealing it because the entire machining operation of a light metal is not dry.

Kinetic Die Casting manufactures products like aluminum hardware, and aluminum boxes. If you would like more information on Kinetic Die Casting, please visit our website:Kinetic Die Casting Company

Die Casting Tooling: 4 Types of Dies 2020

Die Casting Insert Molds

Die Casting Tooling: 4 Types of Dies. Dies, or more appropriately termed as die cast tooling, are one of the most essential parts when it comes to die casting. Naturally, you cannot make a certain alloy component without creating the perfect mold – which is why dies are also often called die casting molds. The actual creation of dies begins with the blueprint of the piece or pieces that is to be developed. This is not as easy as it sounds. Very stringent measures are undertaken to make sure that the dies fit every configuration of the overall design. Often the blueprints, the die casting tooling and the corresponding pieces that come from the first two have to be worked over until the perfect pieces are achieved. Only then can mass production of the said pieces can continue.

As such there are 4 known existing types, and these are: single cavity die, multiple cavity die, unit die and the combo die or the combination die.

Single cavity die casting mold, as the name implies, refers to mold that is often used in the creation of a single component. Usually, the very large pieces of metal works are created from single cavity die to ensure that the pieces are “flawless.” On the other hand, multiple cavity die refers to molds that have smaller components but are identical in design. This type of die is more economical when it comes to mass production of smaller pieces.

Unit dies are best for the creation of different pieces that would be fitted to create one larger piece, or unit. This is best for the medium to small pieces as well. Lastly, there is the combo die. The combo die can be a mix of two of the aforementioned dies above or all three. This is great for assembly line production.

Are Aluminum Die Casting Parts stronger and cheaper than Steel in 2020?

Are aluminum die casting parts stronger and cheaper than steel?

How can an aluminum die cast part be stronger than a steel weldament? Kinetic Die Casting, Inc. makes an aluminum die casting Boomerang cam lever part for a lift manufacturer that once was a two pound steel welded unit. This unit consisted of two steel plates, 1/8″ thick, with holes drilled, tapped, and welded to steel spacers with a bushing at each end, then painted. Occasionally, these units would fail in the field. Manufacturing costs ran about $7.00 per part in production quantities of 1,000 each week. Another difficulty is that it took three to four weeks to make the first steel part and only a few 100 could be produced a week. This hindered increased sales.

Kinetic Die Casting now produces these parts in aluminum die casting that weigh only 3/4 pounds; the steel unit weighed over two pounds. The aluminum die casting parts are stronger (3x greater axial load) and more reliable. There is no need for paint on the aluminum die casting parts. The Kinetic Die Casting part price of each die casting unit is less than $3.00.

Kinetic Die Casting can help you develop an aluminum die casting that will reduce weight, increase strength, and cost you less money.

Advantages of the Aluminum Die Cast Part over the Steel Weldament:

  • 3x greater axial load strength.
  • Fewer part failures in the field and fewer returns to the OEM.
  • Part weight is 2.5x less in aluminum saving money in shipping cost.
  • Production quantities (1,000’s) within a few days instead of weeks as before.
  • Production rate is faster as an aluminum die cast part.
  • Raw part manufacturing cost is 2.3x less as an aluminum die cast part.
  • Finishing cost is less as an aluminum die cast part.
  • Better looking parts as a die cast part.

Aluminum Door Handles are Hardware 2020

Aluminum Door Handles

Hardware Door Handles are made to be touched, pulled and turned. Handles are a hardware item that is made to manipulate by a human hand (hand-le). Handles are installed on any item that needs manipulation by the human hand. Handles are used on the door of a home to open and close the door. Door handles sometimes are able to lock to prevent the door from opening. Door handles are used on cars to open and close car doors. These handles are pull handles because they are typically pulled to pull open the car door. Doors on cabinets are special types of pull handles. These pull handles are more decorative and pleasing to the eye. These handles are sometimes ornate in design and have an unusual feel to make the cabinet more valuable. Horizontal pull handles are widespread, including drawer pulls, handles on latch less doors and the outside of car doors. The inside controls for opening car doors from inside are usually pull handles, although their function of permitting the door to be pushed open is accomplished by an internal unlatching linkage. Some door handles do not seem like handles at all. A fire door has a push bar that is the door handle. In a sense, the push bar is a door handle. Door Handles are Hardware Items.
