Besides the problems caused by swarf, lubrication with water-based release agents can also result in problems and potential danger. That’s why you need to pay special attention.
The demand for magnesium artefact is growing. However, fears related to this type of alloy limits its expansion.
A lot has been done to increase safety both on hot and cold chamber die-casting machines and relative furnaces, but a few issues are still to be solved.
The Dry Lube System can make work safer and improve the quality of products, thus solving these problems.
Our dry lubrication system does not require water-based release agents nor the drying process. It increases the fluidity of the alloy and drastically reduces porosity and cycle times. Bring new life to magnesium die-casting with our Dry Lub System.
Powder increases filling speed
No drying stage required
Total absence of oxygen
Less casting porosity
Safer and cleaner working environment
HOW THE DRY LUB SYSTEM WORKS
A minimum amount of dry lubricant – about 0.3-0.5 grams for each kilogram of injected magnesium – is electrostatically applied to the mould at each production cycle (these consumptions were calculated at a mould temperature of 250 °C).
When it comes into contact with the hot mould, the product distributed electrostatically melts, expanding to the deepest points. This way, it creates a highly efficient release film, without creating residual thickness and carbon formations, which are typical of water-based lubrication systems.
