RELATED FAQ
  • High precision CNC Machine

    When someone asks me “what is draft angle?” or “why do I need a draft angle on my aluminum die casting part?” The technical answer is, all aluminum die castings require a draft angle on the walls of die cast parts perpendicular to the parting plane or parallel to the slide interfaces. Since I have selling die cast parts for over 10 years, I find simple answers and provide simple calculations for my customers. What does that mean to the typical engineer (any engineer other than tooling or mechanical) or professional buyer? I try to give examples that most people can relate to, because most people do not have a need to concern themselves with how things are made, only what is made, and will it be what they need. I ask, “Have you ever noticed on a cupcake the bottom diameter is smaller that the top diameter?” or “Have you noticed that a cake pan has sides that slope in toward the middle of the pan?” That would be an extreme example of a draft angle. Aluminum die castings would stick inside the die casting tool, molds, or die casting die if there was not enough draft angle in the tool and part. The typical draft angle for an aluminum die casting part is two degrees per side. The calculation for that is simple if a person is familiar with die casting production part design, but is not familiar to most people.

The surface temperature control of the die casting mold is crucial for the production of supreme and high-quality die casting parts.Uneven/inappropriate die casting mold temperatures can lead to unstable die casting parts dimensions.

There is a high chance of traces when stacked on low-temperature of the front/end melt and can results severely.Out industry uses the improved methods to maintain the surface temperature of the die casting Mold because it’s the most critical part of the whole die casting process.

Check if the wall-thickness is too thin, and the more delicate-area filled accurately and directly.

shape should be filled naturally and need to be checked calculate the distance, the closed area, blocked area, rounded corners are too small to fill, and also pay attention to identify whether ribs or cold sports lies or not.

 

  • Shorten the die casting mold filling time
  • Changing the filling mode of the die casting mold
  • Improve the temperature of die-casting mold
  • Melt temperature must be increased ad leveled
  • Aluminum alloy composition must be checked
  • Increase the scape route
  • Adding a vacuum device

 

 

WHAT DEFECTS DIE CASTING MOLDS HAVE TO FACE AND HOW TO PREVENT THEM?

 

Cracks

In the die casting mold item process, the die casting mold is more than once exposed to warm.The die-cast molding surface, and its internal deformation cause micro-cracks to occur.

Be that as it may, the die casting mold must be adequately preheated toward the start of the die casting process.The die casting mold additionally should be kept up inside a specific working temperature extend during the die casting process to dodge the beginning period break disappointment.

Fragmentation

Under the activity of die casting infusion power, the die casting mold will split at the most vulnerable point.Mostly the scribing marks on the die-cast molding surface are without polishing, or the fine-cracks will start to appear first at the clear corners of the die-cast molding.

Afterward, when the grain boundary has a brittle phase, it can be easily broken.The break engenders quickly during the weak crack, which is a dangerous factor to the disappointment of the die casting mold.

For this reality, scratches, electric machining marks, and so on, on the die casting mold surface must be polished well.However, it is in the pouring system; furthermore, the die casting mold material used is required to have a high-level strength.

Also, excellent and exceptional plasticity, impact toughness, and fracture toughness.

 

WHAT IS THE MOST SIGNIFICANT FACTOR OF DIE CASTING MOLDS?

 

Mold temperature is considered the most significant factor that affects the Die Casting Molds.When it comes to the aluminum die-casting process, temperature proved a critical factor for it.

Die-casting temperatures and die-casting mold temperatures, these both have a crucial effect on the final die-casted product.

Die Casting Temperature:

As the die casting temperature expands, the solvency of hydrogen gas (could be some other) in the aluminum composite increments.

This makes it very difficult to precipitate during the process of die-casting aluminum, affect aluminum mechanical properties, and also affect the die-casting Mold.

Aluminum compounds increment oxidation with expanding temperature. Oxidized considerations will in general fall apart the properties of the aluminum-alloys.

Besides, the iron substance of the metal/aluminum increments as the temperature increments.

This leads to a decreased & unique amount of fluidity and deteriorates that effects the performance of aluminum products.

Die Casting Mold Temperature:

The die casting mold temperature has an exceptional level of influence on the lifeline of the die-casting mold.

Intense temperature of die-casting molds can cause new cracks.When die-casting mold temperature is too low, the shrinkage stress caused by the aluminum alloy increases, and the casting is prone to cracks.

At the point when the die casting mold temperature is excessively high, it’s beneficial to get a smooth surface of the casting, but at the same time, it’s inclined to shrinkage misery.

 

WHAT DOES IT MEAN BY DIE CASTING MOLD BASE?

 

It represents the functional units of the mold’s die. Its primary task is to fix the cavity of the mold in case of any defect.

During the production process of die-casting, the die-casting base handles the absorbed forces by that process and ensures the integration of aluminum die-casted components.

The die-casting mold base is manufactured/made through the machining by large steel blocks. This way, we can achieve an exceptional amount of stiffness and strength.

The Die-Casting Mold Base is commonly all around dimensioned.

 

WHAT ARE THE WAYS TO EXTEND THE LIFESPAN OF DIE CASTING MOLDS?

 

The best ways to extend the lifespan of Aluminum Die-Casting Molds are following:

  • By using heat treatment
  • By using die coating

 

By applying these two techniques, the heat checking will slow down immensely, ultimately extending the lifespan of the tooling.

Furthermore, you’ll have to factor in the extra costs of these coating and decide whether it’s productive and beneficial, extending the lifespan of the Aluminum Die-Casting Molds or not.

When it comes to the heat treatment of the die casting mold, there are several critically important aspects to consider.

Including the heat treatment furnace used, the number of tempering applied to the die blocks, and the productive-rate used during the heat treatment process.

 

WHAT ARE THE TOP PRODUCTS MADE THROUGH THE DIE-CASTING MOLDS?

 

The top products made through Aluminum Die-Casting Molds are divided into four sections:

Automotive Parts: Engine, Body & Chassis Components, Safety Parts
