Bruschi die casting BLOG. Stay on top of the Industry
As winner of numerous international awards, Bruschi Spa is known for its innovative approach in design and technology. We are glad to share our insights and experiences with the industry members.
Cavitation is a form of mold erosion that occurs during casting. In some critical areas of the dies, steel is removed and eroded by an aggression generated by micro-implosions of gases and vapors that occur during the filling of the cavity.
The rapid deterioration of the dies results in production stoppages and major maintenance operations that compromise the production efficiency.
In terms of mechanical strength, the breaking load is commonly defined as ultimate tensile stress (UTS), which is the maximum external force limit applied beyond which a material loses its functional specifications in terms of strength. Tensile strength tests vary according to the type of stress the material is subjected to, which we will describe later. In our case, are tests to be carried out on a component during production.
Zinc die casting is a process that consists in injecting the liquid metal under pressure into a mould, generally made of special steel, and letting it solidify. The die casting technique is the shortest way that leads from the metal in the liquid state to the finished product and has different fields of application (automotive above all, but also electronics, electromechanics, household appliances and in general all sectors that require non-ferrous metallic components).
A vertical approach to production starts from product co-design and mold design, followed by tool manufacturing and the definition of the die casting process.
The production cycle is eventually completed by additional treatments or processes, which allows the die caster to offer not only die cast parts, but also finished goods. This can also happen through to the cooperation with external, specialized partners.
More specifically, this post will deal with chrome plating and painting of zinc die castings.
This post deals with the fundamentals of die casting machines and their role in the whole die casting process. Moreover, the post gives an outlook on the sector's future perspectives.
In this post we will focus on zinc alloy actuators of large air conditioning systems, explaining what they are and how their components work.
In this post we will analyze the properties of zinc components for electromechanical systems and then review some products that can illustrate the advantages that Zamak can confer to articles intended for this sector.
In this post we analyze proprieties and applications of Zamak components for textile machineries. The textile sector is indeed an interesting sector considering the continuous technological research which makes indispensable the use of high-performance components capable of responding to high technical and production requirements.
In this post we are going to briefly analyze the characteristics of zamak and to highlight its advantages in the production of components for electronic products. After that, we will review some components explaining how choosing zamak has made them more beneficial compared with similar products manufactured with other materials.
Industrialization of the product is a very delicate phase in the process of production of zinc alloy die casts: in fact it is in this phase that, after receiving the order from the customer, all the procedures that are necessary to start mass production are defined.
