Alloys Used in Die Casting

As a fabrication process, die casting is notable for its capacity to manufacture parts with a high degree of uniformity, close design accuracy, and quality surface finishes. In many cases, die casting can reduce or eliminate the need for post-production machining, raising the cost-efficiency of the process and shortening fabrication time. While it may be difficult to die cast sturdier metals, such as certain grades of steel, there are many other types of alloys well-suited for die casting methods.

Filler Video casting machine

Excellent video where you can see step-by-step the filling of a piece of aluminum and plastic at the same time, using a new casting machine.

The foundry institute of RWTH Aachen University presents the new developed hybrid multi-component high pressure die casting process. With this process the possibility is given to manufacture a composite part of two materials (aluminum and plastic) with one tool and one machine.
