We provide design, engineering, and production molds for die-casting molds and squeeze casting molds. The maximum production capacity of the molds is 750 tons, which are used in advanced manufacturing processes for complex and high-performance products. Our die casting mold solutions include molds for precision aluminum and magnesium castings for complex products such as wheels, brake drums, and suspension components used in automobile, truck manufacturing, and performance racing. Our high-speed machining and automatic EDM (Electrical Discharge Machining) functions to ensure excellent die casting mold performance, thereby providing unparalleled castings with dimensional accuracy, strict tolerances, and smooth surface finish.
Die Casting Material
We regularly pour various non-ferrous metal materials. The following are some of the most commonly used alloys:
Aluminum alloy die-casting alloy: A380, A356, A360, and K alloy.
Zinc die-casting alloys include ZA8, ZA27, and Zamak 1 to Zamak 5.
Die casting mold advantages
- A wide range of complex applications
- Excellent dimensional accuracy
- High tolerance
- Smooth casting surface
- Casting tensile strength
- Reduce or eliminate post-processing operations
- High productivity
The inevitable fact is that the cost of die-casting molds is very high, the highest of all production processes. This is because, due to the nature of die casting, during normal use, the mold has to withstand extremely harsh working conditions.
Factors affect the life and cost of molds
Tool materials-Die casting molds are manufactured using the highest quality engineering tool steel available, which is more expensive than standard steel but is necessary for correct functionality.
Temperature Metal will melt at extremely high temperatures and be introduced into the mold, regardless of the quality of the mold material, which will cause a certain degree of thermal shock and stress.
Die-Die corrosion, also known as die corrosion, refers to the tendency of a metal to corrode tool steel, causing it to flow across the die surface, especially with irregular, small, or fine die features.
Fortunately, the typical high-volume operation of die castings helps to keep costs under control and die castings generally do not require expensive secondary assembly and machining operations. Starting from the product design stage, there are many ways to reduce the cost of die-casting molds.
- Value of scrap sold outside the factory
- Unrecycled waste is sold outside.
- Scrap price is only a small part of the purchase price.
- Scrap from finishing operations
- Die castings usually do not require finishing to remove metal.
- Part material volume
- The amount of material in the component varies with the manufacturing process.
- Die castings are usually made of very thin walls and carefully arranged reinforcement parts.
