Die Cast Tooling Mold Bases in 2021

Kinetic Die Casting owns several Die Casting Tooling Mold Bases that we use to produce aluminum die casting parts. These die cast mold bases are convenient for use for customers who own die casting tooling inserts but not a die cast mold base to use in a die casting machine. Some of the moldbases we own are as small as 12″ by 12″ and are as large as 36″ by 36″. Kinetic Die Casting also owns DME unit dies and MUD bases. DME unit dies are available in many sizes. Kinetic Die Casting primarily uses two DME Unit Die sizes:

  • 10″ x 12″ DME Unit Die
  • 12″ x 15″ DME Unit Die

Kinetic Die Casting will mount “customer owned” die cast tooling inserts into our mold bases so we can produce aluminum die casting parts. We can mount inserts ranging in sizes from 3″ to 20″ and all sizes in between. If a customer contacts us and they own die casting tooling inserts only, we can make parts for them. We have also made die cast tooling inserts for customers that will fit our mold bases. The tooling inserts are many types, like:

  • Guitar Amplifier Housings
  • Chocolate Fountain Heaters
  • Golfing Products
  • Aluminum Boxes
  • Aluminum Heatsinks
  • Aluminum Hardware
  • Military Parts
  • Aluminum Auto Parts
  • Aluminum Aircraft Parts

Die Casting Tooling is the greatest cost barrier to producing aluminum die cast Custom Metal Parts. The die cast die mold base is a very large percentage of the die cast tool cost. Kinetic Die Casting uses our die casting mold bases to save money for our customers, so they can get the die casting parts they need.

Save Money when Creating Die Casting Molds in 2021

How To Save Money When Creating Die Casting Molds. Die casting molds, or simply die casting tooling dies, do not really come as easy as it sounds, and certainly these do not come cheap too. For starters, die casting molds must go through several blueprints in order for these to actually be employed in any type of production. Naturally, blueprints have to be converted to actual dies which could make actual pieces. Even with the best blueprints, only a “finished product” could show the positive and negative qualities of the pieces. In turn, these pieces will have to be scrutinized and tested for both quality and strength. Achieving one “flawless” die design can literally take months of work, and the longer the testing continues, the more expensive it becomes.

Why is this so? Well, most die casting tooling are made from steel alloys, and these do not come cheap at all. So for producers of die cast products, they turn to less expensive alternatives in order to create the prototype of the perfect die. Prototypes are usually made of less dense steel alloys. Although the pieces that are made from these prototypes are made from more solid materials, the prototype dies themselves are usually made of light weight materials. These are also subject to metal erosion when used and cannot be readily modified.

However, the prototypes can be made cheaply, and studied afterwards to note where the flaws in the pieces may emerge. The main purpose of using cheap materials for prototype is simply that: to save money during the designing stage. When the desired “model” is achieved, only then do producers of die cast products use steel alloys to create the dies. However, as part of quality control, the pieces that finally emerge from the steel alloy dies also have to go through rigid testing.

Die Cast Tooling and its Forms 2021

Die Cast Tooling and Its Forms. Die cast tooling are the dies and the molds used for die casting. These die cast tools many forms namely Trim Dies used for die cast parts, Die Cast Family Mold Tooling, Complete Class “A” Die Cast Mold Tooling or Die Tooling, Unit Die Tooling, Prototype Die Cast Tooling Inserts and Die Cast Tooling Inserts.

I would be focusing this article on the latter form, the die cast tooling inserts since among all the die cast tooling, these are the least expensive. These actually are just enough steel to create cavities plus extra steel to put up with the fluctuations of the temperature of molten metal injecting under force. To extend the tooling life, the inserts should be heat treated to reach their proper hardness, not too hard and not too soft. Making it too soft will cause it to easily get damaged or easily wear from erosion and making it too hard, on the other hand could result to the steel cracking due to high temperature. Toolmakers who do not use enough steel in the inserts may reduce its potential life.

The die casting tooling inserts need to be supported by a type of holder so that metal could be injected into it and also to provide a sort of a path for the metal to pass and go in while the gases escape. These gases should be removed because it can produce porosity. This holder of inserts are called unit die, family die or mold base.

Die casting is no simple task. You would need to ask expert toolmakers to do this job for you. You just simply need to look online for you to find the expert that could help you. Varying websites of different die casting companies can be found in the internet. All you need is to choose which is the one nearest you.

Tooling Die Casting Tooling Used for Aluminum Die Casting 2021

Tooling Used For Aluminum Die Casting. Tooling is a major requirement in aluminum die casting. During the process of casting, the softened molten metal is injected through custom tooling. The die is then cut into two halves. There is the cover metal die which is mounted on the stationary based platen and the ejector type die, which is actually mounted to a movable platen. Such a design provides the die with the ability to close or open along parting lines. Once the hole is closed, the two die halves will form a type of internal cavity which is filled with hot molten metal in order to form its final casting.

The cavity is formed through 2 inserts. The two inserts are the core and cavity inserts. They are inserted into the cover or ejector die. The cover die provides movement or flow of the molten metal through the injection area. Through a small opening and the cavity, the molten metal will be able to move easily. The ejector die also includes a support plate and a small enclosure called the ejector box, which is well mounted onto the area of the platen. When the clamping separates the 2 halves of the die, the clamping bar will be pushing the ejector plate into the ejector box. The clamps will then push the pins of the ejector to the molded part. The added pressure will eject the clamp from its core insert. In order to perfect the process, multiple cavity die is often utilized and in this type of process the two halves of the die will form several types of identical cavities.

Zinc Die Casting Tooling Facts in 2020

Zinc Die Casting Tooling Facts. Zinc die casting tooling is a technique to form molten zinc into a shape using molds called dies or die casts. The tooling is the mold utilized in the procedure, and it is largely composed of a cover and ejector. The zinc is melted into molten form and then powerfully emptied into the cover die with the container bearing the wanted pattern. The melted zinc settles on the mold and toughens. Later, it is removed through the ejector. Die casts for zinc can have added features such as trim casts, inserts and multiple cavities reliant on what needs to be formed.
There is a request for

because zinc has plenty of perfect characteristics:

  • It is very dense and does not take up much space related to other like materials
  • It is a sturdy and non-corrosive die casting alloy
  • It is extremely force-resistant
  • It is easily moldable into wires, thin walls and other complex designs
  • It can reach countless textures that other materials cannot attain
  • It takes lower heat to liquefy it for casting
  • It is the easiest material for die casting
  • It can remain malleable when melted for a long time
  • It can be added to other metals and elements to improve their condition
  • Zinc die cast tooling is made of tough materials to safeguard that the liquefied zinc will be correctly shaped into the anticipated form. There are likely mistakes in die casting such as porosity, uneven zinc distribution, etc. A great zinc die caster will be extremely cautious in following the normal guidelines so that quality zinc items are manufactured.
