High-Pressure Die Casting
This article provides a comprehensive discussion on die casting alloy types and casting processes used in high-pressure die casting. It presents the advantages and disadvantages of high-pressure die casting and describes the product design for the process. The article concludes with information on the metal injection process of high-pressure die casting.
This article describes the melting process of casting metals used in hot chamber die casting. It discusses the design and capabilities of injection components, such as gooseneck, plunger, and cylinder. The article reviews the distinctions between hot and cold chamber processes. An example of a typical runner, gate and overflow configuration for faucet fixture casting is shown. Temperature control for die casting is also discussed. The article explains some ejection and post-processing techniques used for the hot chamber die casting: robotics, recycling, and fluxing.
