Complete die cast tooling will fit directly into a die casting machine without the need for a separate mold base,
die or insert holder, or master holder. It takes more time than unit die tooling to set this type of die into a die
casting machine, but this type of die will generally produce better quality parts and get more die life.
Complete die cast die or die cast molds will also more likely have waterlines to speed up the cycle time of production, saving the customer¡¯s money.
Complete dies will frequently include a trim die that will speed up the production process and save as much as 15% on the part price.
Complete die cast dies are also easier to maintain and store than other forms of die cast tooling.
Finally, a complete die cast tooling package is directly transferable to another die casting company, frequently without any costly tooling modifications.
When you send us your complete die cast tooling, we will maintan that tooling to a high standard. You will
receive as many parts as possible from that tool.
The most used materials are: Aluminium and its alloys;
Copper and its alloys (bronze, brass);
Magnesium and its alloys;
Tin and its alloys.
The word ¡°die casting¡± indicates the casting procedure in which the filling of the mould occurs through
the pressure which a press executes on the melted metal. The form of the piece is gained through the
mould therefore the manufacture of moulds for aluminium die casting has to be carefully executed.
For a correct manufacture of moulds for aluminium die casting it is essential to choose the right type
of steel and the most suitable heat-treating. There are basic elements that give the mould the
technical-mechanical features of a heat pump.
Casting is a manufacturing process by which a molten material such as metal or plastic is introduced into a mold,
allowed to solidify within the mold, and then ejected or broken out to make a fabricated part. Casting is used for
making parts of complex shape that would be difficult or uneconomical to make by other methods (such as
cutting from solid material). Casting may be used to form hot, liquid metals or meltable plastics (called thermoplastics), or various materials that cold set after mixing of components such as certain plastic resins (e.g. epoxy), water setting materials such as concrete or plaster, and materials that become liquid or paste when moist such as clay, which when dry enough to be rigid is removed from the mold, further dried, and fired in a kiln.
Substitution is always a factor in deciding whether other techniques should be used instead of casting. Alternatives include parts that can be stamped out on a punch press or deep-drawn, forged, items that can
be manufactured by extrusion or by cold-bending, and parts that can be made from highly active metals.
