In Caster Metal, you have a creative and cost reduction to the needs of your business. One of the ways we do this is through our effective manufacturing procedures such as pressure die casting, for example. Our engineers are skilled and trained to perform any manufacturing process.
On this page, we’ll focus on pressure die casting that we’re proud to introduce to you.
What is Pressure Die Casting?
Caster Metal offers pressure die casting as a fast, cost-effective, and reliable manufacturing process in producing high volume of metal components. (These metals are net-shaped and have tight tolerances.)
We inject a molten metal alloy on a steel mold or tool. The molten solidifies to form the net-shape component. (The solidification process happens from milliseconds to seconds.) Then, we extract the metal automatically.
Here in Caster Metal, we use two different pressure die casting types – high and low pressure die casting. High pressure die casting offers a huge application that covers 50% of light alloy. Meanwhile, low pressure die casting covers 20% of the total alloy production.
If you need castings having detailed geometry and tight tolerance, high pressure die casting is the ideal procedure we use. We perform low pressure die casting for large non-critical metal parts.
High Pressure Die Casting
With this process, we inject high speed and pressure to the metal mold. The basic equipment we’re using is two vertical platens. We place bolsters in the platens that hold the die halves. (One of these platens are movable, and the other is fixed.)
Because of this, the die can open or close. Then, we pour a specific metal in the shot sleeve that goes to the mold cavity. We perform the process using a hydraulic-driven piston. Once the metal solidifies, we open the die and remove the casting.
Low Pressure Die Casting
We produce high-quality alloys and magnesium through low pressure die casting. We offer aluminum casting using this process.
Here’s how we do this: we position a metal die above our sealed furnace that contains molten metal. (A riser extends from the die’s bottom into the molten metal.) Then, we introduce low pressure air inside the furnace.
Next, the molten metal rises up the tube and enters the die cavity. After the metal solidifies, we release the air pressure. The metal is still in molten state inside the riser tube and falls back to the furnace.
Take note: Machines and die are expensive, so pressure die casting is ideal for high metal production.
