Initial tests are free of charge. Then a fee is asked if you want to proceed with automatic systems.
Carrying out manual tests during the normal work cycle, detecting the temperatures of the moulds, and assessing the efficiency of the DLS with our clients are part of our procedure.
As already mentioned, the drying stage is extremely important. By eliminating water, we have eliminated even that minimum amount of humidity, which is the first cause of porosity.
When it comes to magnesium die-casting, the moulds take about 15 to 20% of the cycle to dry. By saving this time, we automatically increase productivity.
Thanks to its chemical characteristics, the powder release agent ensures excellent release, increases mould filling speed, and reduces metallisation.
The powder lubricant is applied electrostatically. This system allows you to spread a micro-layer of product across the die surface evenly and extremely safely.
The powder applied for lubrication is hot-melt type and it melts when in contact with the mould.
Yes, it does. With the Dry Lub System, the mould’s thermal management must be based on the correct cooling processes inside the dies. You need to consider that lubricating with powders requires temperatures 80 °C higher than the standard temperature.
The simulation systems available on the market (Magma type) can solve the problems, although human experience and skills should never be neglected.
Our procedure includes manual tests on the moulds being used by our clients. We also check the temperatures using a thermographic camera and analyse the results. The possibility to continue the automated tests is an option we’ll consider at a later stage. This first stage is totally free of charge for the client.
