Description

The gravity die casting process involves pouring a molten aluminum alloy with a ladle into a metal print which solidifies rapidly to form a workpiece.
- This transformation process makes it possible to reproduce pieces of complex shapes with finely ribbed thin walls
- Shell foundry parts require a high degree of finishing which includes a series of operations such as sawing of the jet and the pockets, grinding of the joint plane, heat treatment...
- It is a fast and economical manufacturing process for the production in small and medium series of light alloy parts
- One of these main advantages is to have a high repeatability and a high tool life
Characteristics of the aluminium used in gravity die casting

- At equal volume, aluminum is 30% lighter than steel
- Aluminum is an excellent conductor of temperature, 1.8 times better than copper
- Some cast aluminum alloys can undergo a heat treatment that improves the mechanical characteristics
- Recycling aluminum is easy and economical, environmentally friendly
