What Are the Advantages of Heat Treatment in Aluminum Die Cast Mold Manufacturing?

Heat treatment is used to effect changes in the properties of the die cast mold.

During the heat treatment process, the die cast mold is heated and cooled in order to make it hard or soft.

There are many types of die cast mold heat treatments. Some of them are annealing, carburizing, tempering, normalizing quenching and case hardening.

Heat treatment of die cast molds need to be done with extreme care and caution in order to achieve desired results. This is because if die cast molds are overheated, they may end up losing their strength and unique properties, making them incapable of functioning efficiently.

The following are some of the benefits of the die cast mold heat treatment:

  • It makes the mold more durable because its casing is hardened. This helps to prevent fracturing or breaking of die cast mold. The die cast mold can be used for a long time without spoiling as a result.
  • It releases the internal stress of the die cast mold through the alternate heating and chilling. This helps to prevent internal cracks in the mold.
  • It improves the resistance of the die cast mold to wear, corrosion and heating.
  • Flexibility of the mold achieved after heat treatment reduces the operational cost.
  • It makes the die cast mold less deformable because of reduced surface oxidation.

How Does Die Casting Mold Work in Casting Machines to Produce Parts?

The movable and fixed parts of the die cast mold are tightly clamped together. The mold is correctly mounted in the die casting machine.

Molten aluminum metal is introduced into the die cast mold cavity at a high pressure.

The liquid metal injected into the mold cavity is allowed to cool in order to become hard. When the metal hardens, it takes the shape of the die cast mold.

The casted metal is ejected from the mold by separating the two sections of the mold.
