Aluminum die casting
Our casting technologies
Die casting with aluminum and magnesium
Die casting is a manufacturing process in which melted metal is poured or pressed into steel molds. The molds (also called dies) are individually designed and built for each project. As with gravity die casting, the molds are therefore reusable - unlike sand casting, which works with lost molds. miguss specializes in the die casting process for alloys made of aluminum or magnesium.
High pressure for the best possible result: Aluminum die casting at miguss
This is where power is required: During high-pressure die casting, the liquid aluminum or
magnesium is pressed or shot into the die at a pressure of 150 to 1200 bar. By way of
comparison, a car tire is inflated at 2 bar.
High-pressure die casting with aluminum or magnesium is a precise and fully automated
casting process that is particularly suitable for series and mass production. The reason for this is a significant cost saving compared to other manufacturing processes: With high pressure die casting, complex molds including external threads and detailed interior molds can be cast without having to resort to extensive further processing steps.
The metal casting molds can be reused after they are cast, and the cast part is removed.
Thus, depending on the casting alloy, several tens of thousands of castings can be produced without any loss of quality. On the contrary, components produced by high pressure die casting are characterized by high consistency and dimensional accuracy.
Thanks to the use of iron-free aluminum and magnesium alloys, components made by die casting are suitable for almost all areas of application. In addition, the fact that the high pressure die casting process can also be used to produce complicated geometries and extremely thin components makes this process particularly interesting.
Advantages of the aluminum die casting process
- low costs at high series production
- very precise reproducibility
- manufacturing of complex components
- manufacturing of thin components
- very few steps from raw material to finished component
