THE ULTIMATE FAQ GUIDE

ALUMINUM DIE CASTING PROTOTYPES: 

One of the most important stages of manufacturing is producing a prototype of an intended product. Producing a quality prototype contributes massively to the success of a product launch.

Prototypes help manufacturers to test and predict whether a product idea is valid or not.

In this guide, you will get to know all the important information about aluminum die casting prototypes. You will get answers to all the questions you have about aluminum die casting prototypes at Sunrise Metal, your Leading die casting manufacturer.

What Are Aluminum Die Casting Prototypes?

Prototypes are the first versions of a manufactured product from which all other products are made. A prototype contains the most important features of the final product.

The primary purpose of a prototype is to test a product idea to see if it meets the requirement of the manufacturer.

Aluminum die casting prototypes are some quick turn out products made from prototype tooling, aluminum die casting, and secondary processes like CNC machining, surface finishing, etc.

Aluminum die casting manufacturers use prototyping to convert their aluminum die casting product idea into tangible forms that can be put to test.

Sunrise Metal is your one-stop aluminum die casting prototype manufacturer in China. We have over 10 years of aluminum die casting prototyping experience. Our rich experience together with our high precision manufacturing equipment helps us to produce perfect aluminum die casting prototypes for you.

What Is the Importance of Prototypes in Die Casting Manufacturing?

Prototypes are very important in aluminum die casting manufacturing. In an era that clients demand perfect products and high standard services, manufacturers need to attach the manufacturing of prototypes with all seriousness.

As the leading aluminum die casting prototype manufacturer in China, Sunrise Metal have created highly effective systems that enable us to manufacture perfect prototypes that meet our clients’ expectations.

The following are some of the advantages of prototypes in aluminum die casting manufacturing:

  • Prototypes provide an accurate and precise physical representation of the desired final product.
  • They help to detect defects in your model so that the final product can be perfected. This helps to avoid the unnecessary cost that would have been incurred if defective products are produced in mass production.
  • It gives you the opportunity to improve your final product. When prototypes are made, product developers are able to carefully evaluate and give positive feedback. The useful insights or suggestions from team members developing the product can be used to improve the final product.

Also, you can send your prototype to your intended users or customers for them to test and give your positive feedback. The feedback from your clients is so important since they are the ones going to use your final product. Your intended users can give you useful recommendations to help you improve on your final product after testing your prototype.

  • It saves time, cost, and effort.

A prototype is just the first example of the intended product to be produced and changes can be done to improve it any time in the manufacturing process. Because only one or a few prototypes of the final product is produced, any changes or corrections done do not affect the manufacturer severely in terms of time, cost, and effort. The time, effort, and money used to correct prototype defects are insignificant compared to that spent on products during mass production.

  • Prototypes help manufacturers to better understand their product idea and final product. This is because prototypes convert product ideas into physical product forms that can be seen, touched, felt, and tested.
  • Prototypes help to validate a product idea before mass production. When the prototype meets the intended product requirements after testing and evaluation, manufacturers become convinced that their product idea is valid.

What Are The Advantages Of Aluminum Die Casting Prototypes?

Aluminum die casting prototypes have many advantages over other prototypes because of Aluminum’s unique properties. The following are some of the advantages of aluminum die casting prototypes over CNC machined prototypes:

  • The same prototype material is used for mass production in the future and this makes the prototype to contain the same features as the final product. This will help you have a very good idea about how your final product will look and perform.
  •  The same process for creating an aluminum die casting prototype is used during mass production. This helps maintain consistency during mass production
  • The characters and specifications of the aluminum die casting prototype is the same as the mass production parts. It helps you to save costs from the request of hundreds of pieces.
  • Aluminum die casting prototypes can be used as small batch production that can be launched to the market, therefore saving you a lot of time that mass production would take.

What Are Some of The Technologies Used for Manufacturing Aluminum Die Casting Prototypes?

There are many technologies used for manufacturing aluminum die casting prototypes. For the purpose of this guide, we will limit ourselves to the ones used by Sunrise Metal.

Sunrise Metal uses two main technologies for manufacturing Aluminum die casting prototypes.

Rapid Prototyping

Rapid prototyping is a technology used for making aluminum prototypes at a faster rate.

Rapid prototyping uses the latest technology to make physical models from a CAD file. It is a great way of producing high quality and precise aluminum prototypes quickly.

The Different Types of Rapid Prototyping.

There are two types of rapid prototyping technology, they are:

  • additive prototyping
  • subtractive rapid prototyping.

But there are many technologies under these two rapid prototyping types. They are listed below:

CNC machining

3D printing

Stereolithography

Selective Laser Sintering

Fused Deposition Modeling

Laminated Object Manufacturing

Solid ground curing

Selective laser melting

You need to note that all the rapid prototyping technologies listed above are additive manufacturing methods except CNC machining.

Even though the additive methods are numerous, they have some drawbacks and material restrictions.

Rapid Prototyping Technologies Used By Sunrise Metal

Sunrise Metal use CNC machining for aluminum rapid prototyping. But we are not limited to CNC machining. We also use other rapid prototyping technologies to give our clients options that suit their projects.

CNC Machining Rapid Prototyping

The CNC machining is a subtractive rapid prototyping technology whereby a prototype is machined from a solid material. Material is removed from metal or workpiece by the CNC machine to form a desired prototype. Different materials can be used for this purpose.

At Sunrise, we use CNC machining technology to produce high quality, precise and accurate aluminum die casting prototypes for our clients. Depending on your prototype requirement, we can choose a suitable material for CNC machining. Some of the materials used are aluminum, magnesium, zinc, etc.

Rapid Tooling Technology

This technology uses the CNC machine for mass-producing prototypes. This is a very good method for manufacturers who need statistical data for their products.

It is important to note that rapid tooling is not the same as rapid prototyping, even though they use the same technology. In simple terms, rapid tooling is used for producing molds at a faster rate.

Sunrise mainly used rapid tooling to manufacture precise molds for aluminum die casting. Also known as production tooling, rapid tooling can also be used to produce higher volumes of prototypes or products for testing.

If your goal is to produce low volumes prototypes or parts, you need to use rapid prototyping.

For higher volumes of prototypes or parts, you need to create the molds using rapid tooling technology, then use the molds to produce multiple prototypes through die casting.

The accuracy of these multiple prototypes would be the same as the final product, so they are perfect to test your products and get statistical data.

Sunrise Metal, China’s leading aluminum die casting prototype manufacturer provides both services and we will be happy to serve you using the technology of your choice.

We have a highly advanced rapid tooling technology that makes us capable to produce precise molds for quality aluminum die casting prototypes.

What Are The Processes Involved in Manufacturing Aluminum Die Casting Prototypes?

There are two main processes involved in manufacturing aluminum die casting prototypes. They are:

  • Rapid Tooling/Rapid Mold Creation.
  •  Die Casting Aluminum Prototype.

Rapid Tooling/Rapid Mold Creation

This is where the mold or die for the prototype is created.

  • Design Aluminum Prototype Tool/ Mode.

The first step in creating an aluminum die casting mold is to design the mold. When designing the mold, specifications like draft, fillets, parting lines, boss and ribs need are taken into consideration to ensure a high-quality mold is manufactured.

  • Create a Model for Aluminum Prototype Tool Design.

After designing the mold for the prototype, you need to create a 3D model of the mold using Computer-Aided Design (CAD) technique.

The last step in aluminum die casting mold creation is rapid tooling using a  DMU monoBLOCK 5 – axis CNC  machine. This is where the mold for die casting is created quickly with the DMU monoBLOCK CNC machine. The high precision automated CNC machine converts solid steel into the shape of the mold design.

Die Casting Aluminum Prototype.

After manufacturing the mold, the next step is to make the aluminum die casting prototype using the cold chamber die casting machine.

The mold created by rapid tooling is properly fixed into a cold chamber die casting machine.

Melted aluminum metal is poured into the cold chamber. The mold or die at this stage is closed.

The piston in the cold chamber pushes the metal into the mold cavity under high pressure. The mold is opened during this process. The metal is held in position by the piston until it becomes solid.

The manufactured aluminum die casting prototype undergoes secondary processes like grinding, heat treatment, and surface finishing.

What Is The Minimum Quantity of Aluminum Die Casting Prototypes You Produce?

Sunrise Metal accepts low to medium volume orders with a high mix. But because of our desire to help our customers, we accept a minimum of 1 pcs of aluminum die casting prototype requests. This is due to our commitment to be a one-stop solution for aluminum die casting.
