Aluminum Die Casting
Five-Star Tooling offers superior quality aluminum die casting parts to industries including automotive, food dairy, machinery, medical, plumbing…
Aluminum die casting is the most common alloy die casting in the mold industry. Aluminum die casting alloys are lightweight and posses high dimensional stability for complex part geometries and thin walls.
It withstands good corrosion resistance and mechanical properties as well as high thermal and electrical conductivity.
Besides, low-density aluminum metals are essential to the die casting industry.
The Aluminum Die Casting process retains a durable strength at very high temperatures, requiring the use of cold chamber machines.
The molten metal is still contained in an open holding pot which is placed into a furnace, where it is melted to the necessary temperature.
The open holding pot is kept separate from the die casting machine and the molten metal is ladled from the pot for each casting because these high temperatures would damage the normal pumping system.
Cold chamber castings are more suitable than those of hot chamber die castings for pressure requirements.
What’s more, there’re many other advantages regarding aluminum alloy dies casting.
It has good stiffness and strength to weight ratio, excellent EMI and RFI shielding properties, excellent thermal conductivity, high electrical conductivity, good finishing characteristics, and full recyclability.
Moreover, it retains high dimensional stability with thin walls and can be used in almost any industry.
