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…

Why Aluminum Alloys for Gravity Die Casting?

Why Aluminum Alloys for Gravity Die Casting

Manufacturers always consider cast aluminum a perfect choice for new product designs. This article will help you understand why manufacturers prefer aluminum alloys for gravity die casting to produce various cast metal components. Low Melting Temperature Stainless steel requires temperatures above 2,500 degrees F to melt, and stainless steel casting requires temperatures above 3,000 degrees F. However, aluminum castings require a lower temperature, 1,221 degrees F, to melt. Aluminum melting and casting temperatures also depend on some other metals mixed into the alloy. However,…

Gravity Die Casting vs. Low Pressure Die Casting

Gravity Die Casting vs. Low Pressure Die Casting

Gravity die casting and low pressure die casting all belong to metal mold casting process, both are used to produce aluminum castings. They all use metal mold for manufacturing, typical used mold material is H13 in China. Gravity die casting and low-pressure die casting process can produce the same grade of cast aluminum alloy. Besides, these two aluminum casting methods have similar features in pouring temperature, mold opening time, and mechanical properties (density, strength, etc). Gravity die casting and low-pressure…
