Casting process selection

To keep disadvantages and defects – which constantly arise from an oxide skin forming on the melt – within limits, the gating system must guarantee low turbulence in the metal stream and also a smooth, controlled filling of the die cavity. With the transition from a liquid to a solid condition, volume contraction occurs; this […]

Aluminum Alloy Control

Aluminum foundries should limit themselves to as small a number of casting alloys as possible in order to use their melting equipment economically, to keep inventories as low as possible and to reduce the risk of mixing alloys. With regard to the quality of a casting, it is more sensible to process a casting alloy […]

Shaping by casting

Shaping by casting, Aluminum alloy. Casting represents the shortest route from raw materials to finished parts – a fact which has been known for five thousand years. Through continuous further development and, in part, by a selective return to classic methods such as the lost-form process, casting has remained at the forefront of technical progress. […]

How to select Aluminum Alloys

Aluminum die casting alloys have a specific gravity of approximately 2.7 g/cc, which was placed as the lightweight structural metals. The majority of die castings produced worldwide are made from aluminum alloys. Six major elements constitute the die cast aluminum alloy system: silicon, copper, magnesium, iron, manganese, and zinc. Each element affects the alloy both […]

Surface Treatment of Auminum

Surface treatments are applied to aluminum castings to provide a decorative finish, to form a protective barrier against environmental exposure, and to improve resistance to wear. Decorative finishes can be applied to aluminum castings through painting, powder coat finishing, polishing, epoxy finishing, and plating. Aluminum can be plated by applying an initial immersion zinc coating, […]
