Die Casting Design Guide: Tips & DFM Analysis

According to the implication of design evaluation written by J.A. Barton, design can account for 70% of the cost of a product. 80% of the quality problems are unwittingly designed into the product itself. Effective design plays a crucial role in die casting success. By understanding key principles, you can create high-quality, cost-effective parts. Brief Overview of Die Casting Die casting is a manufacturing method that uses a die casting machine, attaches a mold to it, melts mainly non-ferrous metals,…

Gravity Die Casting Applications

Gravity Die Casting Applications

Gravity die casting is one of the oldest casting methods for producing custom metal parts. In gravity die casting, metal material is heated under a high temperature until it is totally molten. After melting the metal, it fills the mold cavity fastly by gravity only, no other external force needed. Compared with other casting processes, the operation of gravity die casting process is relatively simple. At CFS Foundry, we mainly use gravity die casting to create cast aluminum parts for…

Cast Iron

How Cast Iron Is Made

What is Cast Iron? Cast iron is an iron-carbon alloy with a carbon content greater than 2.11% (generally 2.5-4%). It is composed primarily of iron, carbon and silicon as the core elements and may including manganese, sulfur and phosphorus as impurities. Sometimes alloying elements may be added in order to enhance mechanical or chemical properties of cast iron parts. History of Cast Iron Cast iron has its roots in China in the 4th century BC and is defined as an…

Stainless Steel Casting for Exhaust Outlet Connection

Stainless Steel Casting for Exhaust Outlet Connection

Exhaust outlet connection is an essential part to your vehicle’s exhaust system. It connects your tailpipe at the rear of the car to the muffler. It can reduce noise and emissions. The purpose is to ensure that the exhaust gases from the engine face the engine and exit through the exhaust pipe. It will prevent harmful gases like carbon monoxide from entering the passenger area. If there is an issue with this connection, hazardous vapors could be released into the…

What is CNC Milling?

CNC Milling Applications

CNC milling, a typical CNC machining type, produces custom designed part by removing materials under computerized controls and rotating multi-point cutting tools. It is an ideal machining process to creat custom parts in different shapes. The available CNC milling materials could be metal, plastic, glass and wood. The CNC milling process begins with a CAD model, and the CAM soltware converts it to correct instructions for the CNC machine, then CNC milling machine starts working and removes the material from…
