What is HPDC - Aluminum Alloy Die Casting Molds

Aluminum alloy die castings can be used in a wide range of industries. Like: Motors, water pumps, electrical appliances, lamps, automobile and motorcycle accessories, electronics, home appliances, and some communication industries, machinery industries, etc. Some high-performance, high-precision, high-quality aluminum alloy products with high toughness are also used in large aircraft, ships, etc. In relatively demanding industries. They mainly used still in the parts of some equipment.

Aluminum die parts have thermal conductivity, electrical conductivity, good cutting performance, small linear shrinkage, so it has good filling performance, low density, high strength, and its tensile strength to density ratio is 9-15. It works at high or low temperatures. At the same time, it also maintains good mechanical properties and has good corrosion resistance and oxidation resistance.

Commonly used aluminum die casting alloys metals grades: ADC12,A380/ADC10,A360 etc.

​The Main Physical of Aluminum Alloys As Below:

● ADC12 has good fluidity, is easy to casting, and has relatively balanced properties; it is the most versatile die-cast aluminum alloy and is often used for parts with low-performance requirements such as auto parts, communication cavities, power tools accessories, and medical equipment.

● A380/ADC10 has good fluidity, is easy to casting, has a higher silicon content, and is better than ADC12 in mechanical properties and high-temperature resistance; it is mostly used in engine brackets, gearbox housings, valve bodies, etc.

● A360 has good forming performance, corrosion resistance, fatigue strength, and medium static strength; it is mostly used in instrument housings, street lamp brackets, etc.

The aluminum die casting parts can reach a tolerance :

Standard: +/- 0.010 inch per 1 inch — then +/- 0.001 inch for each additional inch

Precision: +/- 0.002 inch per 1 inch — then +/- 0.001 inch for each additional inch

 

Aluminum alloy die casting mold life: around 100,000- 300,000 shots for a die casting die life depend upon the part/tool design and the Tool steels used.

Commonly Mold Steels Used: H-13, H-13, ESR, Assab 8407, Bohler W302, and Assab 8418. etc.
