All the posts for die-casting
Posts by Topic
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).
In this post we are analyzing how the qualities of zinc alloys become important competitive advantages in the production of lighting components. We will then review some products and their characteristics as case studies.
In this article, after briefly depicting the hierarchical structure of the automotive industry and the reference standard for the Tiers of different levels, we analyze the special partnership that exists between a Tier 2 automotive supplier and its customers, specifically examining the relationship of trust that can be established between a Tier 1 and a SME (Small and Medium Enterprises) Tier 2 automotive supplier.
Thanks to their excellent mechanical and physical properties zinc alloys are a perfect material for die casting: they are indeed resistant, fluid, durable and rigid. But which are the best zinc alloys for hot chamber die casting? In this post we are going to analyze the different characteristics of zinc alloys for hot chamber die casting in order to define the best choice on the basis of the features that the final product requires.
In this post we are going to describe the business philosophy of functional beauty. Starting from this philosophy, Bruschi created Nespresso KitchenAid Artisan 5KES0503, a design coffee machine that led the company to the victory of the prestigious European Zinc Die Casting Competition for design in 2016.
The process of zinc die casting is highly popular for making parts in building and industrial fields, but its most common application is in automotive industry. In fact, cars have different parts that can be crafted through die casting, so much that the modern process of die casting originally started for automotive industry.
ZAMAK molding is the creation of components using zinc alloys for die casting. In this post we are going to discuss how the choice of the alloy can affect the final result of hot chamber die casting.
In this post we are going to discuss some of the most common defects in die casting linked to mold maintenance, and how they can be fixed by the maintenance department.
In this article we are going to analyze a particular corrosion test called Salt Spray Test - SST, normally used to test coatings for automotive parts, in order to test their salt or mist resistance.
