Our Capabilities

Cold Chamber Die Casting

Cold chamber die casting is a method for producing parts from high-melting-point alloys like aluminum. In this process, the chamber remains at room temperature and lacks a molten metal holding pot. Instead, metal is melted separately in a furnace and manually deposited into the shot chamber through a ladle. Unlike hot chamber die casting, which employs a plunger system, cold chamber die casting connects the mold directly to the shot chamber. The molten metal is then forced into the mold by a ram and held under high pressure while it solidifies.

Low Volume Manufacturing

Flexible, cost-effective low-volume manufacturing for 10-100,000 units. Minimize risk, accelerate time-to-market, and optimize production costs. Agility and quick turnaround for on-demand manufacturing.

Rapid Metal Prototyping

Rapid Metal Prototyping offers a diverse range of options to create metal parts and prototypes, using methods like DMLS(direct metal laser sintering), casting, CNC machining,…

RAPID Aluminum Die Casting

Rapid die casting using cast tooling has been a die cast prototyping and low-volume manufacturing method for many years. The process begins with an SLA model, from which H-13 steel dies are cast to a net shape in significantly less time than traditional cutting of tool steel. If needed, additional features can be added through secondary machining. One of the primary advantages of this approach is that prototype parts undergo the die casting process, ensuring that their physical and thermal properties closely match those of the final production parts

What is Aluminum Die Casting?

Aluminum die casting is a manufacturing process that can produce geometrically complex metal parts using reusable die casting molds, called dies. The liquid aluminum is injected under high pressure into the cavity of a steel die, also known as a mold, The die is made up of two halves, and after the molten aluminum has solidified, they are separated to reveal the cast aluminum part.

Advantages of Aluminum Die Casting

  • Precision: It offers high accuracy for intricate designs.
  • Speed: Fast production of large quantities.
  • Cost-Effective: Saves money in manufacturing.
  • Solid and Durable: Ideal for various applications.

Aluminum Die Casting materials

Aluminum alloys are the most widely used for die-cast parts. Aluminum die-casting suppliers benefit from the total recyclability of the material and its ease of use. Due to the comparatively higher melting point, aluminum die casting may require a cold chamber casting process. Engineers use cast aluminum parts primarily for their great strength-to-weight ratios, dimensional stability, and diverse finishing options. We offer the most popular aluminum die-casting alloys, including:

  • A360.0
  • A380.0
  • A383.0 (ADC12)
  • A413.0

Surface finishing for Die Casting Aluminum parts

  • Powder coating involves applying a dry powder paint to the parts, which is then baked onto the part. This method is often used for parts that need to be used in a harsh environment.
  • Anodizing creates a durable, corrosion-resistant finish on aluminum parts. This is a chemical and electrical process which causes a thin oxide layer to form on the surface of the parts.
  • Electroplating involves applying a thin layer of metal to the surface of the parts.
  • Brushing use abrasive belts to draw traces on the surface of a part.

FAQs About Aluminum Die Casting

There are different grades of aluminum alloys used for die casting, depending on the properties and applications required. Some of the common aluminum die casting material grades are:

  • A380: This is the most widely used aluminum alloy for die casting. It has good mechanical properties, corrosion resistance, thermal conductivity, and electrical conductivity. It is also easy to cast and machine.
  • 383: This is a modified version of A380, with higher silicon content and lower copper content. It has better fluidity and resistance to hot cracking than A380, but lower strength and corrosion resistance.
  • B390: This is a high-strength aluminum alloy with high silicon and copper content. It has excellent wear resistance and hardness, but low ductility and corrosion resistance. It is suitable for parts that require high abrasion resistance and dimensional stability.
  • A413: This is a low-silicon aluminum alloy with high fluidity and pressure tightness. It has good corrosion resistance and thermal conductivity, but lower strength and hardness than A380. It is suitable for thin-wall parts and complex shapes.
  • A360: This is a low-iron aluminum alloy with high corrosion resistance and pressure tightness. It has good fluidity and thermal conductivity, but lower strength and hardness than A380. It is suitable for parts that require high resistance to salt spray and marine environments.
  • CC401: This is a proprietary aluminum alloy developed by Dynacast. It has high strength, hardness, wear resistance, and thermal conductivity. It also has excellent fluidity and pressure tightness, making it ideal for thin-wall parts and complex shapes.

A380 Aluminum Alloy is the most popular option, and it’s typically what we recommend to customers for their parts. Despite the lower price tag, this alloy is still very strong, has impressive electrical conductivity, and can resist heat well.
