Die casting applications

  • Joseph F. Engelberger


In the die casting process, parts are formed by forcing molten nonferrous metals under pressure into metal molds called dies. Alloys of lead, aluminum, zinc, magnesium, copper and brass are commonly used. The die casting machine consists mainly of two heavy platens, one fixed and one moving, which accommodate the dies, these normally being fabricated in two halves. The whole design is massive enough to withstand the very high pressures used, typically thousands of pounds per square inch.
