The designer of die casting tooling must balance the functional requirements of the part being cast with the cost, speed, and quality requirements of the process. In addition, attention must also be paid to the capacity and operating parameters of the casting machines being used and the need and economics of postprocessing. This article examines how design and materials selection address these diverse requirements of conventional die casting tooling. It focuses on the tooling for high-volume processes where the liquid or semisolid metal is forced into the die with high pressure and speed. The article also describes the functions...
