Aluminium die-casting

Why does the mould last longer?

There are two reasons why this happens. The first one, which is quite obvious, is that eliminating thermal shocks, we have drastically reduced the expansion of the dies, and thus the formation of cracks. The second reason is that the alloy remains smoother, helping us fill the casting because we work at a higher temperature [...]

How is the quality of the casting improved?

By eliminating water from the lubrication process, we have drastically reduced the formation of hydrogen, which causes porosity in the casting. Based on our experience, it is important to carefully assess the mould and know the cause of porosity, which is not always the result of the lubrication process but can be due to internal [...]

How is productivity increased?

Lubricating with water-based products normally take 10-15% of the cycle time. Two-thirds of the lubrication process are dedicated to the mould drying process, which is no longer necessary if you use the Dry Lub System. That’s how we save 7-10% of the time. We can also do better with particularly difficult castings. But this is [...]

Is it possible to test all this?

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.
