Aluminum die casting is a process for rapidly producing identical metal parts. It is a viral industrial process, and the low production costs of aluminum die casting make it a cost-effective method for producing parts with customizable finishes.
The die-casting process involves the injection of molten metal into the mold at high speeds and pressures. The light and flexible nature of aluminum is the best material for this process, which not only makes it easy to work with but also gives the finished part positive characteristics. This is why manufacturers prefer using aluminum alloys for die casting when producing large quantities of solid and lightweight parts.
Some of the most valuable properties of aluminum alloys include
Cost-effectiveness: Aluminum alloys are affordable and readily available. Even specialty alloys with higher strength, damage resistance, and other additional features are cost-effective to obtain and use.
Sustainability: Aluminum is recyclable. Manufacturers can reuse used aluminum parts to make new ones. They can also collect excess material around the casting and remelt it. This recyclability and sustainability reduce the environmental impact of each aluminum production project.
Durability: Despite its lightweight, aluminum is highly durable. The material is resistant to corrosion, heat, and physical damage and can maintain complex or intricate shapes.
Almost all aluminum alloys have these properties, but different alloys also have unique characteristics that make them attractive for specific projects. Some of the most popular aluminum alloys are
Aluminum alloy A380: This lightweight, moderately corrosion-resistant alloy makes chassis, automotive parts, consumer products, and other parts for high-temperature applications. It can accommodate various shapes and surface finishes for different applications.
Aluminum alloy A383: Also known as ADC12, this aluminum alloy has an excellent die-casting response and is, therefore, often used as a die-casting material for complex parts. A383 is less resistant than A380 above but is more robust, more resistant to high temperatures, and less likely to crack at high temperatures.
Aluminum A360: A360 is explicitly built for industrial components. It has excellent flow and high-pressure resistance. Although it is more difficult to cast than A380, this alloy gives parts good corrosion resistance and strength, including tensile, yield, and shear strengths.
Aluminum alloy A413 is ideal for hydraulic cylinders and other high-pressure components. It is also preferred for complex parts and cold chamber dies casting.
Aluminum Die Casting Applications
Aluminum dies casting is famous for making high-volume, dimensionally stable parts in various industries. Working with a knowledgeable manufacturer who can help you determine the best aluminum alloy for your project is essential. These are three of the most common applications for these parts.
Vehicles need solid, lightweight components that will not fail even when exposed to high temperatures and potentially corrosive chemicals. Increasingly fuel-efficient cars and electric vehicles rely more on these lightweight and durable components. Die casting can make nearly identical chassis, engine components, and more.
Because of its thermal conductivity, aluminum is often used for components that require heat dissipation, such as network and infrastructure components.
Handheld device components
Consumer products and electronic devices also benefit from aluminum die casting, which can produce frames, structural elements, and complex components in circuits and controls.
