What is Gravity Die Casting?
In this process, we pour molten metal from a ladle or vessel to the mold. (The mold cavity doesn’t have force besides gravity, so we perform filling by tilting the die.) We use sand cores to incorporate undercuts and cavities to the component form.
An excellent surface finish is the result of gravity die casting that’s better than sand casting. (The mechanical properties die casting is also better than sand casting. The reason for this is rapid solidification.)
Unlike sand casting, gravity die casting requires less fettling and finishing. We offer you high-quality products due to die casting. Also, the gravity dies casting method is less costly than sand casting.
Take note: gravity die casting offers a higher casting rate than sand casting. But the metal molds are a little costly than sand.
Our Gravity Die Casting Process
Alright, gravity die casting is a manual method using a ladle. But other high-volume applications use an automated ladle in pouring the molten metal. We control the filling effectively by tilting the die.
Take note that the gravity die casting process is similar to sand casting and has four steps, such as the following:
- We heat the die then sprayed with refractory coating, and we close it. The coating controls the temperature of the die effectively. Also, the coating helps in removing the castings effectively.
- Next, we pour molten metal into the die. (In certain cases, a machine is used to do this process) to solidify the metal.
- Now, we open the die, and we remove the cast parts by hand. (In some conditions, we use ejector pins to opening the die and removing the cast parts.)
- Last, we remove the scrap, runners, flash, and sprues from the castings. Then, we process the castings to remove any sharp edge and extra material. If required, we clear the blast.
With gravity die casting procedure, you’re sure that you achieve satisfaction in your casting manufacture. We make sure that we reach your demands when it comes to die casting. Our experts are open tox suggestions if you want to add your ideas to the casting process.
