Aluminium gravity die casting step by step process animation

    Gravity die casting mold Heating

    Aluminium Gravity die casting is one type of permanent mold casting, it have many years history. now the technology is common. as a permanent mold casting factory in china, we have years experience to handle various gravity die casting parts, with this process, you can achieve thicker wall with less porosity casting parts, also complex shape. today lets discuss the process step by step.

    What is Gravity Die Casting?


    Gravity die casting, also called Permanent mould casting,  is used to manufacture casting parts from non-ferrous materials such as aluminium or low-temperature alloys. The process is used to create intricately shaped components for a wide range of industrial applications in the defence, medical and energy sectors. It involves pouring molten metal, under the force of gravity, into a preformed cast steel block which is fully machined to produce the die.


    Aluminium Gravity die casting step by step process

    Step 1

    tooling die heated first; and then sprayed with a refractory coating, and closed. The coating both helps control the temperature of the die during manufacture; it also assists in the removal of the casting.

    Step 2

    Second; Poured molten metal into the die manually; (need poured enough molten metal into die).

    Step 3

    The Gravity die Casting Machine tilted, Molten metal flow into whole die under Gravity. and solidify

    Step 4

    The Casting Part been hold and cool down.

    Step 5

    The Machine Rotates back; The die opened ; the casting parts either removed by hand or ejector pins

    Final Step

     Remove sharp edges and excess material, like the gate, runners, slugs, sprues and flash
