Introduction
• Die casting is a very commonly used type of permanent molding process in which surface finish and tolerance of die cast parts is good that post-processing can be eliminated in many cases.

• Die casting molds are expensive and require much time to manufacture they are generally called dies. • Die casting is done for high volume with high details, and value added economically priced cast parts.

Die Casting Process

1.Die is ready to start

2.Die is closed, molten metal is filled in the chamber

3.The ram pushes the molten metal in to the die

4.Die cavity is filled with molten metal in few micro seconds

5.The metal than solidifies

6.The component casted is ejected from the die

7.The die is cleaned and sprayed with releasing agents

8.Die is ready for the next cycle

Die casting process
• In Die-Casting the metal is injected in to the mold under high pressure 10-210 Mpa (1,450-30500 psi)

• Casting can produce very complex geometry parts with internal cavities and hollow sections. • It is economical, with very little wastage, the extra metals in each casting is melted and reused • The clamping pressure exerted on the die is Rated in “Clamping

tons”
• The capacity varies from 400 tons to 4000 tons.

    1.0 Calculations 1.1 Sizing of component (including Shrinkage allowance) When cooling from molten state, all metals decrease in volume. When cold, casting will be smaller than their pattern. In order for parts to be of correct size, patterns are made larger to allow shrinkage. The extra size is called Shrinkage Allowance. Different metals have different Shrinkage Allowances. For the purpose of our project, we have been using Brass having shrinkage allowance of 1.5%. Length Nominal…

    Q. Do you think Kappmeyer should sign the proposal? Why or why not? Ans. I think Kappmeyer should not sign the proposal. My recommendation is based on understanding the basic nature of disruptive technologies, and their future impact on the steel industry. Kappmeyer is currently making the decision based on short-term gains. With this proposal USX will have 2.6M ton capacity which 3 times greater than Nucor’s 0.8 M ton but the conventional method is not sustainable on a long term basis. CSP…

    Casting Defects: Some defects are common to any and all process. These defects are illustrated in figure briefly described in the following: [pic] A) Misruns: A Misrun is a casting that has solidified before completely filling the mold cavity. Typical causes include 1) Fluidity of the molten metal is insufficient, 2) Pouring Temperature is too low, 3) Pouring is done too slowly and/or 4) Cross section of the mold cavity is too thin. b) Cold Shut: A cold shut occurs when two portion…

    Sand Casting

    • 1982 Words
    • 8 Pages

    Introduction A sand casting or a sand molded casting is a cast part produced by forming a mold from a sand mixture and pouring molten liquid metal into the cavity in the mold. The mold is then cooled until the metal has solidified. In the last stage the casting is separated from the mold. There are six steps in this process: (see sketch below): 1. Place a pattern in sand to create a mold. 2. Incorporate a gating system. 3. Remove the pattern. 4. Fill the mold cavity with molten metal…
