NADCA Die Casting Congress West, Date: March 7, 2019, Location: 5757 Telegraph Road, Commerce, CA 90040

The NADCA West Coast 2019 Congress will feature technology highlights from our Congress in Indianapolis, last fall. The event begin with a breakfast followed by a full day of presentations. Presentations to include:

State of the Industry
Presented by Beau Glim, North American Die Casting Association
An update on the current state of the die casting industry.

On Demand Melting
Presented by Charles Monroe, University of Alabama at Birmingham
A look at research into induction melting technology for the die casting process. Such technology has the potential to revolutionize the die casting process by melting only the metal needed to make one shot at a time. This eliminates the energy needed to hold the metal in a liquid state, reduces the chance for contamination of the metal, and provides flexibility to use different alloys. On Demand Melting technology is also being leveraged to research the process of die casting titanium alloys.

Mechanical Properties of Modern Die Castings
Presented by Paul Brancaleon, North American Die Casting Association
NADCA has published data for die casting properties based on typical values taken from tensile bars cut from castings that had the skin removed. This provides property from data that is not always in line with castings made in industry. Current research is collecting more accurate data on different alloys and thicknesses of aluminum die castings.

Advanced Core Design & Manufacturing / Quality Control Technology
Presented by Carl Soderhjelm, Worcester Polytechnic Institute
Advancements in technology are improving the die casting process and the way die castings are inspected. Additive manufacturing allows die casters a way to create conformal cooling channels in cores that previously had insufficient cooling. Further research is being conducted to identify the process and design parameters for additively manufactured cores. Die casting inspection also benefits from technology improvement. One technology that is seeing more use in the die casting industry is computed tomography (CT) scanning. This technology can more accurately detect porosity inside the casting.

Testing of Die Lubricants
Presented by Charles Monroe, University of Alabama at Birmingham
Die lubricants are necessary for the die casting process. They prevent the molten metal from soldering to the die, minimize ejection force, and locally cool the die. But what distinguishes one lubricant from another? Research has been performed to create laboratory tests that can identify characteristics of different lubricants.

Machine Learning in Die Casting
Presented by Beau Glim, North American Die Casting Association
The die casting process is full of data and as the process becomes more automated the data becomes easier to collect. A human, looking at a spreadsheet, can only analyze so much data. To fully understand all of the interacting variables in the die casting process machine learning needs to be utilized.

The cost for each event is just $50 for NADCA Members and $75 for Non-Members (note that registration includes access to breakfast and lunch). In addition, if you will be sending 5 or more people we are offering special pricing.

Die casting Parts are completely recyclable. Die Casting Parts have a Planet-Saving Value. These days, many manufacturers are turning to aluminum.

aluminum die casting alloys

Aluminum is a better material to provide their businesses with excellent products that can boost sales. Die casting aluminum is more than just an aluminum production means; it is considered both as an art and a craft.

Unlike plastic, aluminum alloys are completely recyclable. Aluminum is strong and does not deteriorate over time.

The aluminum die casting alloys used in the aluminum die casting process offer designers that are concerned with post-consumer recyclable a highly favorable material option by way of the die cast parts’ reuse feature. Die cast aluminum parts these days, as well as the entire die casting process itself, give product engineers the chance to create and develop aluminum designs that can save the environment. Thus, components in the die casting process are now made to maintain their integrity and quality through disassembly and the consequent tasks of repair, manufacturing, and reassembly – major options that were not available or possible in past years.

What does all this mean? It means that once the lives of die casting aluminum parts end, they are armed with the potential to return to usefulness by becoming part of some other industrial application, and an Kinetic Die Casting Company an aluminum die casting company can indeed help save the planet.

Low Production Die Castings Cost. Heating plates are mostly seen in the home and in laboratory equipment that need continuous heating or source of heat like chocolate fountains. Many manufacturers prefer producing heating plates using aluminum alloy because this alloy has thermal properties that are suitable to play the role of heating plates. Many manufacturers also use die casting in producing heating plates because they find it more convenient and economical to use as compared to other processes.

In die casting, aluminum is melted by exposing to extremely high temperature. When the metal is already melted, it will be injected in molds or dies to take the shape of the parts. Afterward, when the metal is already solidified, the parts or casts in the dies will be removed and will be slightly polished. The parts are near net shape, meaning they are produced as whole parts so joints will be avoided. This makes the pressure die casting more efficient because it produces stronger and more durable products unlike other processes like extrusion. In extrusion, the products produced are in cross section making the parts less durable as compared to die casting. Aside from this, heating plates do not need hollow parts like that of what will be produced in extrusion. Lastly, pressure die casting is much inexpensive than extrusion that is why many manufacturers use die casting instead of extrusion.

The steel die cavity is sprayed with a liquid release agent to prevent the molten metal from sticking to the steel cavity. Much like the cook will spray a pan before baking a cake. The spray dissipates into steam because the die is very hot. Porosity is natural in the Die Casting Process. The molten metal is squirted at a very fast speed and under extreme pressure into the die. It is like a running water hose with a thumb on the nozzle. The metal is moving very rapidly as it is forcibly injected into a steel die cavity, the metal picks up voids and air bubbles from the steam and the turbulence of the injection. The metal is squeezed into the die with a piston to evacuate or to remove and compress most of the voids and air pockets. Those voids and air pockets are called die casting porosity. It is a natural occurrence in the production of die casting parts. To read more about die casting porosity, review our web page: http://www.kineticdiecasting.com/porosity.html

What is the High Pressure Aluminum Die Casting Process?
Cold Chamber Die Casting Machine

The image pictured above depicts a Cold Chamber Die Casting Machine as it makes parts. The term “Cold Chamber Die Casting” refers to a separate metal melting furnace. The High Pressure Die Casting, cold chamber die casting process follows this sequence:

1. Look at the image above
2. The die casting machine opens the die casting mold.
3. The prior part is removed and the die cast mold is sprayed for the next part
4. The aluminum is poured using a ladle into a shot cylinder
5. The shot piston injects the metal into the die casting mold.
6. The machine opens and the process starts again.
