As a mature and innovative industrial equipment, nonferrous metal die casting machine is widely used in automobile, aviation and communication fields. These industries have in turn promoted the technological progress of automatic die casting machine, making the two achieve a win-win situation. However, there are also cases where the buyer of the cold chamber die casting machine has a dispute because it makes a mistake about the machine he needs.
Here is the content list:
Why die casting machine is one of the most popular processing equipment?
When can die casting machine process non-ferrous metals?
What non-ferrous metals can die casting machine process?
Die casting is a metal casting process that uses a mold cavity to apply high pressure to the molten metal. Depending on the type of die casting, a hot chamber or cold chamber die casting machine is required.
Due to the high cost of casting equipment and molds, the die casting process is generally only used for mass production of products. The die casting machine is particularly suitable for manufacturing a large number of non-ferrous metal castings, so die casting is the most widely used one of various casting processes.
Compared with other casting techniques, metal parts made by die casting machine have a flatter surface and higher dimensional consistency, and It can’t be better for high-volume, high-precision production plants.
As the foundation of economic development and a traditional industry, the die casting machine industry can be traced back to the beginning of the 19th century, and has gradually emerged with the prosperity of the printing industry.
At the beginning of the 20th century, foreign companies first used die casting machine to produce connecting rod support frames on automobiles, creating a precedent for die castings to be used in the automotive industry, and becoming a turning point in the history of die casting development.
In 1920, the advent of the cold chamber die casting machine opened the way for the die casting of high melting point alloys such as aluminum, magnesium, and copper.
Since then, the application of die castings has become increasingly widespread, covering various industrial categories and fields, especially in the automotive industry with the largest consumption, the most varieties, the most stringent requirements, and the highest quality.
From the mid to late 20th century, die casting technology has undergone continuous reform and innovation, and the die casting machine industry has shown a momentum of rapid development. At present, the die casting machine industry has entered a new period of development, with continuous improvement of die casting equipment and process technology.
With the development of the global economy, the demand for non-ferrous metal die casting machines in many fields such as automobiles, 3C products, communication infrastructure equipment, household appliances, and medical equipment has steadily increased. More and more ferrous metal castings are replaced by non-ferrous metal die castings, such as aluminum and magnesium alloys.
Hot chamber die casting is sometimes called gooseneck die casting. The metal pool of this die casting machine is molten liquid and semi-liquid metal, and the mold is filled under pressure.
When the hot chamber die casting process cannot meet the requirements, the cold chamber die casting machine can be used, which has a wider application range than the former, including aluminum, magnesium, copper and zinc alloys with higher aluminum content.
This is the easiest metal to die-cast, and it is cost-effective when manufacturing small parts. Zinc parts made by die casting machine are easy to coat, have high plasticity, compressive strength and a long life.
Aluminum is light in weight, has high dimensional stability, strong corrosion resistance, good mechanical properties, high thermal conductivity and electrical conductivity when manufacturing complex and thin-walled castings.
What's more, it can still maintain such performance even at high temperatures. It is worth noting that only cold chamber die casting machine is suitable for processing aluminum parts.
As the lightest kind of commonly used die-casting metals, magnesium is quite easy to be machined, and has considerable aesthetics and strength.
Copper has high hardness and strong corrosion resistance, and has the best mechanical properties among commonly used single die-cast metals. The copper parts processed by die casting machine are resistant to wear, and the strength is close to steel.
This alloy has nice accuracy and density, so it can be used as a special anti-corrosion component. But in the consideration of health, this alloy cannot be used as food processing and storage equipment. It can be used to make manual type and bronzing in letterpress printing.
In recent years, the total output of non-ferrous metal castings in the world has continued to rise, and the most contributors are magnesium, aluminum and their alloys. Die casting machine is the most suitable processing machine for non-ferrous metals, so it is also improving with this trend.
