Aluminum casting is a specific manufacturing technique for aluminum components. Mold must be prepaid before starting aluminum casting process. The precision of the mold will have a direct effect on the shape and surface finish of the finished aluminum casting.
During aluminum casting process, aluminum ingot is heated to its liquid form under high temperature. The pouring or pressing liquid aluminum alloy into mold by gravity or additional pressure, depending on the aluminum casting method selected. After solifidication, quickly taking the castings from the mold, and doing post treatments such as shot blasting, powder coating, or post machining to achieve net shape products.
Aluminum castings have properties similar to other aluminum forgings. Once the casting process is complete, the aluminum castings quickly form an exterior layer of aluminum oxide that helps protect against corrosion. So, besides stainless steel castings, aluminum castings also have good corrosion resistance, while maintaining light weight.
Aluminum foundry is the specialized manufacturing company for cast aluminum parts. The aluminum foundry can design, engineer and manufacture aluminum castings to your specifications and application needs. Addtional machining service in aluminum foundries can guarantee high accuracy.
Types of Aluminum Foundry
Aluminum Gravity Casting Foundry
The aluminum foundry who is professional on gravity die casting process. Gravity die casting, also refers to permanent mold casting, involves molds and cores of steel or other metal. Molten aluminum is usually poured into the mold under cavity. Gravity die castings can be made stronger than either die or sand castings. Common applied aluminum alloy in aluminum gravity casting foundry is A356-T6 aluminum.
Aluminum Pressure Die Casting Foundry
The aluminum foundry who is professional on high or low pressure die casting process. The aluminum pressure die casting foundry forces molten aluminum into a steel die (mold) under high or low pressure. This manufacturing technique is normally used for high-volume production. Aluminum pressure die casting foundry can make precise aluminum parts requiring a minimum of machining. Common applied aluminum alloy in aluminum pressure die casting foundry is A380 aluminum.
Aluminum Sand Casting Foundry
The aluminum foundry who is professional on sand casting process. Sand casting is the most versatile method for producing aluminum products in aluminum foundry. The process starts with a pattern that is a replica of the finished casting. Aluminum sand casting foundry presses a pattern into a fine sand mixture to form the mold. The pattern is slightly larger than the part to be made, to allow for aluminum shrinkage during solidification and cooling. If the quantity is small, and the design is intricate or the part is relatively large, contact an aluminum sand casting foundry for your design is a good option.
