Vacuum High-Pressure Die Casting
Vacuum high-pressure die casting uses a vacuum pump to evacuate the air and gases from the die casting die cavity and metal delivery system before and during the injection of molten metal. This article describes the conventional die casting, vacuum die casting, and high-pressure die casting processes.
