Die casting is a metal casting process that is characterized by
forcing molten metal under high pressure into a mold cavity. The
mold cavity is
created using two hardened tool steel dies which have been machined
into shape and work similarly to an injection mold during the
Most die castings are made from non-ferrous metals, specifically
zinc, copper, aluminum, magnesium, lead, pewter and tin-based
on the type of metal being cast, a hot- or cold-chamber machine is
The casting equipment and the metal dies represent large capital
costs and this tends to limit the process to high-volume
production. Manufacture of
parts using die casting is relatively simple, involving only four
main steps, which keeps the incremental cost per item low. It is
especially suited for a
large quantity of small- to medium-sized castings, which is why die
casting produces more castings than any other casting process. Die castings
are characterized by a very good surface finish (by casting
standards) and dimensional consistency.
Two variants are pore-free die casting, which is used to eliminate
gas porosity defects; and direct injection die casting, which is
used with zinc
castings to reduce scrap and increase yield.
Advantages of Metal Die Casting Process
1. Aluminum (aluminum alloy) die casting has advantages of
lightweight, excellent corrosion resistance, good mechanical
properties, high thermal
and electrical conductivity, high dimensional stability for complex
shapes and thin walls, and retains strength at high temperature.
2. Zinc die casting is the easiest alloy to cast and plate, which
features high ductility, high impact strength, promoting long die
life as well as
economical for small parts.
3. Magnesium die casting is the lightest and easiest alloy to
manufacture with excellent strength-to-weight ratio.
4. Copper (brass, bronze) die casting features high hardness, good
corrosion resistance, highest mechanical properties of alloys die
cast, good wear
resistance, excellent dimensional stability and high strength that
approaching steel parts.
5. Stainless steel die casting has high degree of dimensional
accuracy and surface finish, with a small amount of mechanical
processing work, which
greatly saves a large equipment, metal material and working hours.
6. Lead and tin die casting high density, extremely close
dimensional accuracy, used for special forms of corrosion
