If you somehow have anything to do with aluminium, zinc or magnesium products, you must be well aware of what is die casting. Die casting is mainly of two types: – 1. High Pressure Die Casting and 2. Low Pressure Die Casting
I wasn’t taught all this in school, but I am one of the best person to talk about die casting since one of my friends own one of the biggest die casting companies in the world.
High Pressure Die Casting products are very expensive compared to the low pressure die casting ones, because they are extremely rigid, corrosion resistant and have very high tensile strength.
The high pressure die casting is more popular than the low pressure. Almost 50% of the die casted products are made using high pressure die casting. The low pressure die casting constitutes of 30% of the total die casted products but it is becoming more popular day by day.
If my friend wasn’t owner of one of the greatest die casting companies, I wouldn’t have known even close to what I know now. Die casting is a very complex process and apart from receiving one-to-one knowledge from one of my best friends, I also read several books about it.
For the large scale companies, high pressure die casting is the most economic and time-efficient way to get aluminium, zinc or magnesium products made. Scientists have been trying to develop a method that is more efficient and effective for decades and decades, but they haven’t been able to find a method that can beat high pressure die casting. It is the most economic, fastest and most accurate.
Due to the rise in the popularity and sales of small scale parts, low pressure die casting is gaining more popularity and is becoming more useful every day, but it is still nowhere near the high pressure die casting.
