Investment Casting for Bicycle Frame Building Components

Investment Casting for Bicycle Frame Building

Investment casting, uses a lost wax process to create complex products with exceptionally better surfaces than sand casting process. With thousands of years’ history, it has been the most precision casting technique favored by bicycle manufacturers. In investment casting, the liquid material is allowed to be solified into its final shape while it’s hot and slowly cools in the mold. It is a copying process that can creat thousands or even ten thousands of pieces. Typical bicycle frame building parts…

Aluminum Casting of Chair Legs

Cast Aluminum Chair Legs

Aluminum alloy has good casting property. Due to the low melting point (pure aluminum melting point 660.230C, aluminum alloy pouring temperature is about 730 ~ 750oC), it can be widely used in casting methods such as gravity die casting and high pressure die casting, which will improve the inner quality of casting, dimensional accuracy and surface smoothness and production efficiency. Due to the large latent heat of solidification of aluminum alloy, under the same weight condition, the solidification process time…

Convert Aluminum Sand Casting to Gravity Die Casting

Convert Sand Casting to Gravity Die Casting

When producing irregular cast aluminum parts with low volumes at a low tooling or start-up cost, sand casting is an ideal solution. However, once your product volumes increase, aluminum gravity die casting might be a better solution since sand casting requires a new mold for every casting. Gravity die casting applies a single mold made out of tool steel that can produce 100,000 pieces or more versus a brand new mold for every part when using the sand casting process.…

When to Use Gravity Die Casting?

Why Use Gravity Die Casting

Gravity die casting is one of the right process to creat aluminum castings, which employs reusable molds made out of steel or iron. Gravity die casting is often recommended as an alternative to sand casting and high pressure die casting for aluminum components. Gravity die cast mold employs a reusable steel mold like high pressure die casting as opposed to a sand mold’s one-time use and can incorporate sand cores to create complex shapes with internal cavities and undercuts. Gravity…
