Pulling together information previously scattered throughout numerous research articles into one detailed resource, Physical Metallurgy of Direct Chill Casting of Aluminum Alloys connects the fundamentals of structure formation during solid...
BackgroundAluminium casting Techniques are classified as Ingot casting or Mould casting. During the first process, primary or secondary aluminium is cast into rolling ingot (slab), extrusion ingot (billet) and wire bar ingot which are subse...
Aluminum gravity casting uses the force of gravity, to fill a permanent mold, or die, with molten material. It does not use the high-pressure method to form the casting. It will ensure that there will not be any clusters formed during this ...

Aluminum Alloys May 15, 2017

Wrought Aluminum Alloys for General and Special Applications: Part OneAbstract:The main groups of aluminum alloys which are the most often used in practice besides technically pure aluminum are AlMn, AlMg, AlMgMn, AlMgSi, AlZnMg, and AlZnMg...

Permanent mold casting May 15, 2017

Permanent mold (gravity die) casting, like die casting, is suited to high-volume production. Permanent mold castings typically are larger than die castings. Maximum weight of permanent mold castings usually is about 10 kg, but much larger c...
Abstract:Aluminum is one of the few metals that can be cast by all of the processes used in casting metals. These processes, in decreasing order of amount of aluminum casting, are: die casting, permanent mold casting, sand casting (green sa...

Zinc and Zinc Alloys May 15, 2017

BackgroundZinc and zinc alloys are used for extrusions, castings, forgings, rolled sheet or drawn wire and of course as a protective coating. Two other major uses are as sacrificial anodes and in brass alloys.Application of Zinc CoatingsZin...

Sand Casting Moulds May 15, 2017

BackgroundProduct development cycles have reduced significantly with the increasing use of Computer Aided Design (CAD). Solid modelling used with techniques such as finite element analysis and mechanical simulation has significantly reduced...
BackgroundAluminium casting processes are classified as Ingot casting or Mould casting. During the first process, primary or secondary aluminium is cast into rolling ingot (slab), extrusion ingot (billet) and wire bar ingot which are subseq...

Resin Sand Casting May 15, 2017

1. Sand molds often use resin based chemical binders that possess high dimensional accuracy and high hardness.2. Such resin-bonded sand molds take somewhat longer to manufacture than green sand molds because a curing reaction must take plac...

Die casting materials May 15, 2017

He main Die Casting alloys are: zinc, aluminium, magnesium, copper, lead, and tin. Specific Die Casting alloys include: ZAMAK, zinc aluminium, AA 380, AA 384, AA 386, AA 390, and AZ91D magnesium. The following is a summary of the advantages...
The process is generally used for small castings, but has produced complete aircraft door frames, steel castings of up to 300 kg and Aluminum Sand Casting of up to 30 kg. It is generally more expensive per unit than Die Casting or Sand Cast...
Investment casting has the potential to create monolithic cast systems, which replace multi-piece fabrications from solid hog-outs. This has provided a new perspective for manufacturing engineers to conceive, while designing new structures....
Investment casting, often called lost wax casting, is regarded as a precision casting process to fabricate near-net-shaped metal parts from almost any alloy. Although its history lies to a great extent in the production of art, the most com...
As a supplement to the sand casting other casting methods were successfully applied.Modern casting production methods can manufacture thin and accurate molds—of a material superficially resembling papier-mâché, such as is used in egg car...
Die casting is a process that produces metal parts by forcing molten metal into reusable steel molds under high pressure. These molds also known as dies are specially designed to produce different shapes of varying complexity with a high le...
