How to make aluminium die casting design to Suitable for high – volume production needs
There are many problem in die casting part,as 650 °C molten Aluminium under high pressure with more secondary manual process to your final die casting product .So great die casting design is the first step in your die casting project .
aluminium die casting design guidelines
Please click Product_Specification_Standards_for_Die_Casting pdf to see the dogmatic of die casting deisign. but we will tell you some actual experience in what we met in china die casting manufactuer .hope this experience can let you learn casting part quick and efficient.
Aluminum Die Casting Draft,Fillet,Ribs
Larger draft ,fillet,ribs is better for mass production ,less die casting defect occured .you can learn more in the die casting pdf.
aluminum die casting Wall Thickness
Syx die casting company consultation: in general, wall thicknesses for a die cast design range from 0.06 in. (1.5 mm) to 0.236 in. (6 mm), but some time I make 10 mm thickness with large die casting machine.and the cost is higher ,some smallest problem occured
powder coating thickness is about 0.1mm, painting is 0.03mm
Try to mill as less material as possible to avoid sand hole.
if you need stable size ,try to heat treatment to the diecasting part
Matching parts to die casting component
so if you have matching part like extrusion ,plastic ,stamping ,we must consider the tolerance between two parts. otherwise ,it’s hard to assemble.
if the cover is stamping part , we suggest make it by NC punching or laser first ,after die casting part finished .then open mold for stamping.
Die casting design calculations
Simulation after die casting design ,we can easy to know how stronger the casting product. and avoid lots of mistake .like can’t assemble,easy broken. we suggest use ug ,solidwork ,it’s easy for rookie with guideline
molten aluminium like the water , gating system like mountain ,overflow like the sea. if you want to design excellent die casting component ,you only need to think how to water esay flow from mountain to sea. (if you like,pls share it ,thanks you )
