Dimensional measurement: production control and reverse engineering


Having a metrology room inside of die casting plant, focused on the dimensional control of the components, assures the requested dimensional quality of production in order to reach customer's needs in terms of lead time and minimize risks.

Die casting defects: Internal and Superficial

Die casting defects: Internal and Superficial


The main die casting defects which occur during die casting can be divided in categories related to different phases of production process.

These defects occur during different moments:

  • Die casting
  • Pre-Finishing
  • Machining operations
  • Surface finishing

In particular in this article we are going to analyze defects related to the first category: die casting.

Is important to remember that not every defect can be avoided during die casting phase, but is necessary to focus on mould design. This happens because during production phase is possible to act on a limited number of parameters and sometimes to solve a problem the designer can only modify mould design.
