Precision Aluminium die-casting for industries
By: MYKE Technologies Pte Ltd
Die casting is a one of many metal casting processes where molten metal, in our case aluminium, is forced into a mold cavity(s) under very high pressure to form a part to the shape of the mold. The mold cavity(s) is machined according to the customer's design except certain intricate portions may have to be post machined after the die-casting. Typically, the mold cavity(s) is made from two pieces of hardened tool steel dies machined to shape per the customer's design. These two dies work similar like a plastic injection mold except the molten material is aluminium. As you know, most die-castings parts are made from non-ferrous metals, like aluminium, zinc, copper, magnesium, tin, etc. alloys.
Aluminium die casting parts can be processed under high pressure up to 4500 p.s.i.
Because most of the die-casting processes involve very intricate equipment and molds the capital outlay for a die-casting production line is very costly thus larger volume quantities production are needed. The processes of manufacture in aluminium die-casting fall under four key steps thus incremental cost per item becomes relatively small. Thus, aluminium die-casting is very suitable for large volume small to medium sized parts. Our Aluminium die-casting parts can obtain very good surface finish as the molds are precision machined to size and polished as needed.
Our aluminum die-cast production presses are fully-automated and/ or use with multiple-slides with cast tonnage ranging from 280 tons to 840 tons.
Aluminum alloys materials we use include:
- A380 (most prevalent alloy),
- ADC12 a.k.a. alloy 383 (for intricate parts),
- B390 (for good hardness and wear resistance),
- A413 (for high pressure application)
- and many others.
MYKE Technologies have increased our machining capability in both CNC milling and CNC turning. We employ state-of-the-
