Historically, in order to cast aluminum with thin-wall sections, we would have used custom formulated high-fluidity alloys. However, our engineers recently developed a method to apply this technology to standard alloys. Read more here.
If you are using a conventional die casting process, it may be worth taking the time to understand how multi-slide works and how it could be a better fit for your project. If your part is less than 400g, multi-slide is usually the better option.
At Dynacast we are often asked what tips we have that can improve a part design. I wanted to share with you some of the more common design tips that we recommend for die casting.
Draft is necessary on surfaces parallel to the direction of the tool draw because it facilitates the ejection of the part from the die.
We look at tolerances differently. Our standards both meet and exceed industry standards and are used as a guideline for designers worldwide. We believe that tolerances should be as tight as necessary, not as tight as possible.
As the technology becomes cheaper, cars will increasingly be available with multiple active safety systems
