What is Die Casting?

Die casting is a manufacturing process for producing accurately dimensioned, sharply defined, smooth or textured-surface metal parts. It is accomplished by forcing molten metal under high pressure into reusable metal dies. The process is often described as the shortest distance between raw material and finished product. The term, “die casting,” is also used to describe the finished part. The term “gravity die casting” refers to castings made in metal molds under a gravity head. It is known as permanent mold casting ... Read more

What is a die casting tooling?

Tooling: Dies and Molds for Die Casting Die cast tooling called insert die, die casting dies, or die casting molds, comes in one part each cycle). Sunrise Metal only uses cold chamber die casting machine tooling dimany styles, sizes, and values. Die cast tooling comes in single cavities (one part each cycle) or multiple cavities (more than es or molds for aluminum die cast parts. Die cast tooling comes in various forms: 1.   Die Cast Tooling Inserts 2.   Prototype Die Cast Tooling Inserts 3. ... Read more

Why use the Die Casting Process?

The aluminum die casting process makes component parts, decorative trim, and finished products. The die casting process used by Sunrise Metal offers many features, advantages and benefits to those who specify this manufacturing process. The die casting process provides complex metallic shapes within closer tolerances than any other mass production processes. Die castings are processed at very high rates of production. Near net shape is archived so little or no machining is required. Parts produced using the die casting process can ... Read more

How Are Die Castings Produced?

First, a steel mold capable of producing tens of thousands of castings in rapid succession must be made in at least two sections to permit removal of castings. These sections are mounted securely in a machine and are arranged so that one is stationary (fixed die half) while the other is moveable (injector die half). To begin the casting cycle, the two die halves are clamped tightly together by the die casting machine. Molten metal is injected into the die cavity ... Read more

What is Porosity in die casting parts?

There are many forms of Die Casting Porosity, many are caused by these die casting variables: Metal Temperatures and Mold Temperatures. Material Cleanliness. Die Casting Mold Design. Die Casting Part Design. Die Casting Machine Pressures. Die Casting Machine Shot Speed. Die Casting Spray or Die Casting Mold Release. Other forms of porosity can be from “shrinkage” or wall thickness. What is Die Casting Porosity? In order for you to know what die casting porosity is, you need to know the die casting ... Read more

What is Draft angle ?

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 ... Read more
