B. Bunch Company Closed

Kinetic Die Casting Company first started making aluminum die casting parts for B. Bunch in 2004 when C&D Die Casting Company Closed. B. Bunch Company would buy about 500 aluminum die casting parts a year or every two years. Last year, 2023, I received a call telling me that B. Bunch would be closing. I was again very sad that a great American manufacturing company would be closing.

Aluminum Box Enclosure Uses

Die Casting Aluminum Boxes are used in many ways. How are Die Casting Aluminum Box Enclosures used? These boxes are used for retail product packaging because they can easily get grounded since aluminum can conduct electricity. These are also used as enclosures for parts which should be protected from sudden impact, dust, or moisture. These boxes are also used as a means of blocking away radio waves and frequency which may affect the capacities of the electronic components. It offers protection to the electronic components by providing RF or EMI shielding.

Aside from these uses, a die casting aluminum box enclosure is also utilized as a “grounding plane” or as a common electrical circuit for the electrical machinery inside the box. Die casting aluminum boxes can also be used as storing equipment since they are durable enough to contain materials when one is out on a road trip. These boxes can be manufactured huge so these can be used at the back of pick up trucks. But they can also be crafted in a small size so they can be used in the home as storage for magazine and comic book collections. These can also be used as mailboxes which can survive the harsh weather for a couple of years. Die casting aluminum boxes are also used as large transportation enclosures for both equipment and animals.

Draft Angles in Die Castings

Kinetic Die Casting Company discusses “Draft Angle in Die Castings” – “what is draft angle in an aluminum metal box casting?” or “why do I need a draft angle on my aluminum die casting box part?” The mechanical reply is, all aluminum die castings need a draft angle on the walls of die cast box parts perpendicular to the parting plane or parallel to the slide interfaces. Because I have been selling die cast parts for over 20 years, I find easy answers and give simple calculations for my clients. What does that have to do with the usual engineer (any engineer other than in tooling or mechanical) or professional buyer?

Most people do not have the need to worry about how things are made; only what is made, and will it be what is essential. “Have you ever observed on a cupcake the bottom diameter is smaller than the top diameter?” or “Have you noted that a cake pan has sides that slope in toward the middle of the pan?” That would be an extreme case of a draft angle. Aluminum die castings would stick inside the die casting tool, molds, or die casting die if there was not enough draft angle in the tool and part. The usual draft angle for an aluminum die casting part is two degrees per side. The calculation for that is easy if a anyone is acquainted with die casting production part design.

Imagine an enclosure (or Aluminum Box) lying on a counter with the open side up. The aluminum box is 2″ deep inside with the height and width 4″ each way on outside. The walls of the box are 0.10″ in width. Due to the wall’s thickness, a few things are obvious to a part designer regarding this seemingly simple box:

  • The general height of the box is 2.10″ tall.
  • The inside of the box at the top of the opening is 3.80″ x 3.80″.
    A 2 degree draft angle will alter the dimensions in the following on the interior and exterior and should be regarded if something needs to fit inside the box or outside the box:

  • The top inside dimension of the box will be 3.80″ and the bottom inside will be 3.664″
  • The top outside dimension of the box will be 4.00″ and the bottom outside will be 3.864″
    If the box was intended for the interior of 4″ x 4″ at the bottom: box:

  • The top inside box dimension needs to be 4.136″
  • The outside top box dimension will be 4.336″.
