Die-casting is a manufacturing process that involves injecting molten metal with low melting points such as zinc and aluminum into steel molds.
The mold is cleaned and coated with a release agent to prevent sticking.
The gating system is the network of channels that allows the molten metal to flow into the mold cavity. It consists of a sprue, runner, gate, overflow and vent.
The mold halves are clamped together in a die casting machine that applies high pressure and controls the injection speed.
The molten metal is forced into the mold cavity through the gating system. The injection pressure and speed depend on the type of metal, mold design and casting size.
The molten metal solidifies in the mold cavity as it cools down. The solidification time depends on the metal composition, temperature and thickness of the casting.
After solidification, the mold halves are opened and the castings are ejected by pins or air jets. The castings may have excess metal attached to them from the gating system, which can be trimmed off later.
CCS provides many types of professional die-casting services to meet the different needs of our customers.
Die casting is a manufacturing process that can be used to produce parts from a variety of metal alloys.
Aluminum is one of the most common die casting metals. It is a lightweight and versatile material that can be easily cast into complex shapes. It is widely used in the automotive, aerospace, and consumer electronics industries.
Zinc is another major category of die casting metals.It is a low-cost and easy-to-cast material that is commonly used for small to medium-sized parts in the automotive, electronics, and construction industries.
Magnesiumis another popular die casting material. It is a lightweight and strong material that is commonly used in the aerospace and automotive industries, particularly for parts that require high strength and low weight.
Copper is a high-conductivity material that is commonly used for electrical and thermal components in the automotive and electronics industries.
Brass is a durable and corrosion-resistant material that is commonly used for decorative components and plumbing fixtures.
Lead and tin alloys are low-melting-point materials that are commonly used for plumbing and other low-stress applications.
After the die casting process, the surface of the metal parts may require additional finishing or surface treatments to improve their appearance, durability, or performance.
Polishing is a surface finishing process that involves removing surface imperfections and roughness to create a smooth and shiny surface. It can improve the appearance of the die-cast parts and make them more aesthetically pleasing.
Powder coating is a process that applies a layer of dry powder to the parts’ surface and then bakes them to create a durable and attractive coating. It can improve the durability and corrosion resistance of the die-cast parts.
Plating means coating the surface of the parts with a thin layer of metal, such as chrome, nickel, or zinc. It can improve the die-cast parts’ appearance, corrosion resistance, and wear resistance.
Anodizing is an electrochemical process that creates a protective oxide layer on the surface of aluminum parts. It can improve the corrosion resistance and surface hardness of the die-cast parts.
Painting is a layer of paint or coating to the surface of the parts to improve their appearance and protect them from corrosion.
Sandblasting is a surface finish process that involves blasting the surface of the parts with abrasive materials, such as sand or glass beads, to remove surface imperfections and create a uniform finish.
Heat treatment involves heating and cooling the die-cast parts to improve their hardness, strength, toughness, or ductility. It can also relieve internal stresses and improve dimensional stability. Some examples of heat treatment are annealing, quenching, tempering, and aging.
CCS, the die-casting service provider, offer below service processes
CCS can provide consultation services to clients to determine the best manufacturing approach for their product. They may also offer design services to create 3D models or prototypes for products.
CCS may develop and manufacture the tooling needed for the die-casting process. This includes creating molds or patterns, as well as machining or fabricating tooling components.
We use a range of die-casting methods, such as hot chamber or cold chamber to produce the desired parts. They may also perform post-casting processes, such as trimming, deburring, or polishing.
A quality control team is equipped to perform inspections and tests on the parts produced. This may include using equipment such as coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) or X-ray machines to ensure the parts meet the client’s specifications.
CCS can also handle the shipping and logistic, ensuring the manufactured parts are delivered to the client in a timely and efficient manner.
CCS is able to provide ongoing customer support to address any issues or concerns that arise during the die-casting process or after delivery of the parts. Maintenance or repair services are also offered in the process.
Die casting is a popular manufacturing process that is used to produce a wide range of metal parts with high precision and accuracy.
