Die Casting Methods/Different Types of High Pressure die casting process

Die Casting Method by Material :

The main die casting alloys include aluminum and zinc which are the non-ferrous alloys. They are used in the process of high pressure die casting since they with some mechanical properties are the optimal choices that can meet various die casting needs. They are corrosion-resistant, stable in dimension, easily-cast, recyclable, and have a good resistance of high operation temperature during.

Die Casting Method by Equipment :

It's impossible for only one process to meet all the needs of the projects. There are different machines with various sizes applied in the process according to the high pressure die casting needs. Aluminum alloy is suitable for cold chamber die casting, and zinc alloy is suitable for hot chamber die casting. KES has the two processing method to satisfy the die casting needs:

Difference Between Aluminum and Zinc Die Casting

Die casting is an alloy high pressure casting manufacturing process in which molten metal is poured or forced into steel molds. The methods also include hot chamber die casting and cold chamber die casting. The molds—also known as tools or dies—are created using steel and are specially designed for each project. This allows each component to be created with accuracy and repeatability. Aluminum and zinc are the most commonly used die casting alloys.

Aluminum alloys and zinc alloys have their own advantages and irreplaceability, let us see how to choose when necessary.

Benefits of Aluminum Die Casting:

The price of zinc alloy is similar to that of aluminum alloy. If the structure and die-casting process permit it, of course aluminum alloy is more cost-effective.

  • Low material cost

  • High die casting capacity

  • Wide range of applications 

  • Suitable for mass production

Benefits of Zinc Die Casting:

The performance of zinc alloy die casting is better, and there are many advantages. It is a good choice when the scope of application is suitable and the budget is sufficient.

  • Good forming performance

  • Compression and wear resistance

  • Easy surface treatment

  • Long lasting

Wanna know more about advantages of High Pressure Die Casting?

Die casting can have significant advantages over other manufacturing processes, which often lead to major cost savings, not only in the part price itself but also in the overall cost of production. When you cast a part, you can create complex net shapes, including external threads and complex internal features with minimal draft angles- minimizing secondary operations. You can also combine multiple parts into a single part, eliminating assembly operations and lowering labor costs, with the added benefits of simplified stock control and greater component consistency. Aluminum & zinc die casting(cold chamber and hot chamber die casting), you can choose what you want.

FAQ of Die Casting

  • Q: Why is die casting used?
    • Accuracy and stability: The parts made of die casting are durable and dimensionally stable, and they also have strong heat resistance.

    • Strength and weight: Die casting parts are stronger than plastic injection parts of the same size.

  • Q: What is the difference between die casting and injection molding?

    The main difference between die casting and injection molding is the raw materials used. Die casting uses a certain metal (usually aluminum alloy or zinc alloy) as the raw material, while injection molding uses plastic or polymer.

  • Q: What is made from die casting?

    Die casting has a wide range of applications, from industrial spares to household parts. The most common are auto parts, communication equipment and small home appliance housings, etc.

  • Q: What is the difference between hot chamber and cold chamber die casting?

    The difference between hot chamber and cold chamber die casting processes is that die casting hot chamber heats metal inside the casting machine, whereas cold-chamber die casting heats metal in a separate furnace and then transferring the newly molten metal into the casting machine.
