Aluminum die casting
Aluminum die casting is the most exemplary method for producing complex aluminum parts. Ingots of aluminum alloy are heated to extremely high temperatures until they are entirely molten for the casting. The mold (Die) is also preheated and lubricated, making it much easier to release casting products and achieve high-quality surface finishes.
Following the liquidation, molten Aluminum is injected into the cavity of the high-strength steel die. The high-pressure injection produces a dense, fine-grained surface with a wide range of physical and mechanical properties.
Properties of Aluminum alloys Components
The most frequently used aluminum alloys for die casting are A380, 383, B390, A413, A360, and CC401; however, the Selection of the right one depends on the end-use application of the products. For example, A360 has excellent corrosion resistance, pressure tightness, and fluidity during the injection. B390 is ideal for casting automotive engine blocks due to its wear resistance, hardness, and lower ductility properties. While, The A380 is the ideal jack-of-all, with large properties that allow it to be used for a wide range of products.
●The 7000 series Aluminum alloys have tensile strengths of up to 700 MPa, making them stronger than steel and more than copper and steel in terms of strength-to-weight ratio.
●Aluminum die-casting components withstand static and dynamic loads due to their high elasticity properties.
●Its strength increases as the temperature drops, allowing it to withstand icy conditions.
●Aluminum alloys have high reflectivity, reflecting more than 80% of visible light.
●Aluminum alloy components are Non-magnetic, electrical conductor, and non-toxic.
The prime advantage of producing aluminum alloy components from the die casting approach is that once manufacturers create the mold according to the required specification, it allows the serial production with high dimensional stability without micro cracks. Moreover, unlike conventional sand casting, mold is not needed to create every time. Therefore, it is cost-effective if you need the products or components in high volumes.
Required mechanical and physical properties for end-use applications are easily obtained by selecting the appropriate aluminum alloys, so you decide which products you need. Then, our experts help you choose the right one for you and your business.
●The reactions that lead to the termination of metallizations are almost eliminated when we create the parts and products by Aluminum die-casting.
●With a high degree of precision, complex geometries can be created. In addition, the surface finish will be excellent, with delicate grain structures.
●High coefficient of elastic modulus and excellent tensile strength.
●Products and parts with uniform thickness can be manufactured (even components with a thickness of less than 1.5 mm are eligible for die-casting)
Aluminum die-casting is used extensively in the energy industry to produce power generation equipment, solar panel enclosures and bases, distribution components, and many more.
