Die Casting Process

Die casting process is a manufacturing process for producing accurately dimensioned, sharply defined, smooth or textured surface metal parts. It is accomplished by injecting liquid metal at fast velocity and under high pressure into reusable steel dies. Compared to other casting processes, die casting is at the top end of both velocity and pressure. The high velocity translates into very turbulent flow condition. Die Casting process is often described as the shortest distance between raw materials and the finished product. the term die casting is also used to identify the cast product.

Commonly used metals in die casting process for making the moulds are die steel, tool steel, tungsten carbide, etc.
The die casting is used only for producing low melting point metals like Aluminium, Lead, Tin, Zinc, Cadmium, etc.
It is of two types
  1. Gravity Die Casting
  2. Pressure Die Casting
