What is Vacuum Die Casting?
Vacuum Die Casting is also known as vacuum-assisted high pressure die casting. It is a high-pressure die casting process where a vacuum pump is used to remove the air and gases trapped within the die cavity.
Vacuum Die Casting can be thought of as an upgrade to the traditional die casting process. The process of die casting remains almost the same. Only some adjustment for creating a vacuum in the system is incorporated.
Vacuum Die Casting is usually coupled with a Cold-Chamber Die Casting process. It helps to overcome some difficulties and reduce casting defects that occur during a die casting process.
Sunrise Metal has advanced Vacuum Die Casting facility that will ensure you high-quality parts that are free from defects.
What is the process of Vacuum Die Casting?
Vacuum Die Casting process can be done in different ways. It is mainly differentiated based on how the vacuum is created in the system. The two main actions that take place in the whole process are the Injection of the melt and the creation of a vacuum.
The Vacuum Die Casting process can be controlled in three ways.
- The injection of the molten metal and vacuum creation is done simultaneously.
- The vacuum is created inside the die cavity first, then Injection of the molten metal takes place.
- The injection and vacuum creation timing are controlled by sensors.
So, the Vacuum Die Casting process may be done in either of these ways. But a generalized process will be discussed here to give you a better understanding of Vacuum Die Casting.
Melting the Metal
The first thing to do before getting started with Vacuum Die Casting is meting the metal. While it may seem like a simple task, it definitely isn’t. The metal is often required be to melt in a controlled environment for better results.
Slow Injection under low pressure
The melt is poured into the cylinder, where the melt is driven inside the die cavity with the help of a piston. In the case of Vacuum Die Casting, the melt is slowly pushed inside the die cavity under low pressure.
The vacuum valve is then opened and air inside the die cavity is removed using a vacuum pump. Once the air is removed and there is enough negative pressure inside the die cavity the vacuum valve is closed.
Fast Injection under high pressure
After creating a vacuum, the melt is rapidly driven inside the die cavity under high pressure. Due to the vacuum, the melt uniformly spreads inside the die cavity without leaving any pores or voids.
Solidification and removal of the casting
Allow the melt to cool down and solidify inside the die cavity. Then eject the dies and take out the finished part. After that, the machine will be ready for the next casting operation.

What are the advantages of Vacuum Die Casting?
Vacuum Die Casting has been very popular among the leading industries for its multitudes of advantages. Let’s have a look at the advantages Vacuum Die Casting can offer.
This is a big reason why Vacuum Die Casting is preferred over a traditional die casting method. Normally there are many types of defects that take place during die casting.
Vacuum Die Casting can greatly reduce or even completely eliminate different types of casting defects and improve the quality of the manufactured parts.
Improved Mechanical Properties
Vacuum Die Casting reduces defects and allows uniform distribution of the melt. That ensures better integrity of the parts and improves the mechanical strength. It also allows heat treating your parts to improve some characteristics.
Better Surface Finish
Another charm of Vacuum Die Casting is that the finished parts have a really great finish. That minimizes the need for additional surface treatment and helps you reduce the production cost of your parts.
Traditional die casting often fails to properly produce parts that have undercuts and thin walls. Vacuum Die Casting can overcome these limitations and allows the provision of these critical geometric parameters.
Short Cycle Time
Vacuum Die Casting allows rapid casting under high pressure without compromising the quality. That helps to reduce the time of production because other post-casting operations are not required in Vacuum Die Casting.
Now that you know the benefits Vacuum Die Casting can offer, you can be more confident about manufacturing your parts using this method.
What industries are using Vacuum Die Casting?
Most of the industries that need high-quality parts for their products choose Vacuum Die Casting over traditional die casting methods.
Some of the major industries that prefer Vacuum Die Casting are,
- Medical etc.
This is just to give you an idea of the scope of this process. The use for Vacuum Die Casting is way more than that.
Is Vacuum Die Casting expensive?
Vacuum Die Casting can be more cost-effective than a traditional die casting method. But the vacuum system is mainly an addition to the traditional die casting methods and that comes with some installation fees.
So, how is it a cheaper option? Even though some additional investment is required for Vacuum Die Casting, it will ultimately save more money than it will cost. Because it reduces the need for many post-casting operations.
Vacuum Die Casting will yield high-quality parts without defects and improved mechanical properties. That reduces the need for some quality control measures and reduces wastage due to the production of defective parts.
The finished parts also have a very good surface finish that reduces the need for further surface treatment. So, Vacuum Die Casting has the potential to save the money spent behind the post-processing of the parts
Taking into consideration these facts, we can conclude that Vacuum Die Casting is more cost-effective in the long-term production.
What are the casting defects that can be overcome by Vacuum Die Casting?
There are different types of casting defects that may take place during die casting. It is undesirable to have any defects in the finished parts. Vacuum Die Casting can eliminate most of the defects that occur during a traditional die casting process.
Casting defects that can be overcome by Vacuum Die Casting listed below.
Porosity is one of the most common type of casting defects. It is the entrapment of gas or air that causes void space to form inside or at the surface of a casting. Porosity greatly hampers the appearance and reduces the strength of parts
Blisters are casting defects that become apparent when heat treating a die-cast part. It is also a result of gas pores trapped inside the die cavity. Vacuum Die Casting can improve the microstructure of metal to allow heat treating.
Misrun is the failure of the molten metal to reach certain areas in the die cavity. It is a common phenomenon in traditional die casting. Usually, it happens due to the provision of thin walls in the design.
Cold Shuts are void space that occurs when molten metal entering through two different gates fail to merge properly. Vacuum Die Casting can reduce the chance of cold shuts.
How does Vacuum Die Casting reduce Gas Porosity?
Porosity is the gas pores or voids that are formed during die casting. It is usually formed due to air or gas trapped inside the die cavity. It can also occur when a large amount of dissolved gas is present in the melt that is released upon solidification.
There are other reasons as well that can cause gas pores to form in a casting. Such as the turbulence during pouring the melt or due to metal shrinkage which causes vacuum holes to generate.
Vacuum Die Casting can greatly reduce the chance of porosity that develops due to entrapped air inside the die cavity. Because air and gas present in the die cavity is removed using a vacuum pump.
How does Vacuum Die Casting increase weldability?
Weldability is a feature that is mainly exclusive to metals. But it is not the same for all the metals. Some metals are easier to weld than others. The weldability of metal mainly depends on the microstructure and mechanical properties of the metals.
Vacuum Die Casting creates a better microstructure and increases the integrity of parts. That increases the weldability of a die casting without having to use costlier materials with higher weldability.
Does Vacuum Die Casting allow Heat treating of parts?
Yes, parts produced using Vacuum Die Casting can be given heat treatment.
Heat treatment is a process of altering the physical and mechanical properties of a metal. The rate of diffusion and cooling within the microstructure of metal can be manipulated using heat treatment.
The manufacturers can give heat treatment to a die-cast part to improve its strength, ductility, hardness, elasticity, etc. So, it is a great way to achieve better mechanical properties using less expensive metals.
What Vacuum Die Casting does is improves the microstructure of the parts. It makes it possible to provide heat treatment for the finished parts.
How does Vacuum Die Casting improve surface finish?
In the Vacuum Die Casting process the air and gas present inside a die cavity is removed to create a vacuum. That allows the molten metal to uniformly spread throughout the die cavity. It reduces the chance of pores to form along the surface of a casting.
So, the surface of your parts remains free from defects. That reduces the need for further surface treatment of your parts as well. That’s why Vacuum Die Casting can yield parts with a better surface finish.
Can Vacuum Die Casting increase the precision of the castings?
Yes, Vacuum Die Casting can increase the precision of your parts. Although the precision of die-cast parts mainly depends on the accuracy of tooling, there are some limitations in traditional die casting that doesn’t allow some geometric features.
When you provide thin walls and undercuts in your design, the die casting process becomes complicated. That will lead to defects and incomplete castings.
Vacuum Die Casting allows you to include complex features in your design. So, you can expect more precise parts with Vacuum Die Casting.
