General Application of Aluminum Die Casting
Die Casting is a proven old method of manufacturing with roots in thousands of B.C. but the modern form of casting traces its roots to the mid-19th century. Development of quicker mobility vehicles and die casting were in lockstep with use of Aluminum as a primary alloy coming in later. Aluminum die casting parts since have become the dominant manufactured die casted parts.
While zinc and other alloy casting is also used depending on the properties required by a particular machine where there are to be installed. There is are clear reasons why Aluminum Die casting is preferred for most applications. They are light, with great dimensional stability, highly conductive of heat and electricity and extremely resistive to corrosion. Finding all of these qualities in one is why application of Aluminum die casting is so vast.
Application of Aluminum Die Casting
There are number of appliances in your home, office, transportation, and surrounding that uses, in some degree, aluminum die casting parts. But depending on their market share and dominance in certain sectors, here is are few applications of Aluminum Die Casting;
Alternatives to Aluminum Die Casting
One of the biggest competitions to aluminum die casting in recent years has been the emergence of 3D printing. With each passing day, larger and finer parts from 3D printing can be seen online and in the marketplace. These types of additive processes where even a mold is not required can be a serious contender for replacing aluminum die casting.
Now, there is a case to be made for the rendering capacity, reusability and overall affordability of 3D printing. Household 3D printing rigs have been manufactured but they are limited by size. A simple render of a part takes anywhere from 3 to 36 hours. Then there is the cost of the material itself, just like paper printers where toners and inks will bankrupt you, the same is the case for 3D printing.
The speed of aluminum die casting and the uniformity of each part at an equal rate is something we have not seen from 3D printing. With technology it is always a long game, it takes time to perfect and be efficient, but right now your safest bet for uniform quality parts with great properties is still aluminum die casting.
