Kinetic Die Casting Company uses the die casting process to make aluminum die castings and zinc die casting parts. The die casting process, simplified, is described as follows:

  1. Our customer provides us tooling (https://www.kineticdiecasting.com/tooling.html), a die, a mold or inserts that we use to make their parts. We can also produce the tooling for our customers.
  2. We put together the tooling and mount the tooling in our die casting machine. This takes a few hours.
  3. We fill a furnace with the proper die casting alloy metal (https://www.kineticdiecasting.com/Alloy_Data.pdf) to make the parts for our customer. The metal takes 4 hours to melt to the casting temperature.
  4. While the furnace is heating up we heat up the tooling to make the castings.
  5. When the tooling is hot and the furnace has melted the aluminum, we begin the die casting process.
  6. We spray the tooling with a release agent so the parts do not stick in the tooling.
  7. We close the tooling inside our die casting machine.
  8. The metal is ladled into a shot sleeve, a piston drives the metal into the tooling using great force.
  9. Our die casting machine opens, the ejector pins push the part out of the tooling
  10. We begin the process again by spraying the tooling.
  11. We repeat this process 200 times to 500 times in a 10 hour shift.
  12. When completed making raw castings, we trim the excess material called “flash”. We use a trim die in a trim press or we sand parts with a belt sander and file them by hand. Sometimes this takes longer than the casting process.
  13. At this point, some parts are put in boxes and shipped the same day. Other parts are machined. Some parts get painted or chemical coated. All parts are inspected prior to shipping to our customers.

This is a very simplified description of the die casting manufacturing process.

Die Castings used for many Aircraft Parts. Demand for diecast airplane parts is increasing in the aircraft industry. Airplanes need lightweight materials for mobility. Moreover, planes require durability and resistance to several stresses while flying. Among metals, aluminum is used to serve as frames or skeletons of the aircraft.

In the aircraft industry, the strength of aluminum is significantly increased by high pressure die casting. Aluminum die castings used for airplane parts are strong against torsion and expansion stresses. These are important considerations since a flying aircraft is subjected to several forces.

In the machining process, there is always an associated imperfection called die casting porosity. This is the amount of gas that combines with the solidifying metal, as it cools in the mold. Porosity is characterized by the size and number of air bubbles inside the finished product. There are three levels of porosity. The second and third levels are unacceptable when it comes to machining airplane parts. This is to guarantee safety of the passengers.

Die castings used for airplane parts are usually made of different aluminum alloys. The two most common die casting alloys for aircraft parts are A380 and A413. For example, Al 7075 is commonly used for making frames because of its toughness.

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.

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

Why should you use Die Cast Heating Plates? Die Cast Heating Plates are used for many industrial purposes. Examples of their uses include the manufacture of toys, plumbing, cell phones, computers, automobiles, machines and kitchen metal parts. Unknown to many, die casting plates are used for almost every important thing in our day to day lives.

One good example of a Die Cast Heating Plate at work is a chocolate fountain. Chocolate fountains are often used in parties, receptions and other important events. The heater plate keeps the chocolate warm and flowing for several hours.

Generally, Aluminum Die Cast Heating Plates are favored by the general public, preferred by both in households and business establishments. Die casting offer better quality than by other manufacturing processes such as stamping, mold casting, forging and extrusion.

Why should you use Die Cast Heating Plates? The most obvious reason is that the metal used, aluminum, is one of the most copious metals on earth. Since aluminum supply is almost unlimited, the metal is affordable compared to other metals. It also has plenty of advantageous characteristics. It is lightweight, making the production process easier and faster. Its no surprise why many companies opt for this method compared to other more costly methods.
