die casting


Presented by:

Chandra bhan prajapati



The casting process is subdivided into two distinct subgroups:

1 - Expendable mold casting

(sand, plastic, shell, and investment (lost-wax technique) mouldings.)

2 - Nonexpendable mold casting

(permanent, die, centrifugal, and continuous casting).

Classification of die casting:

(a)Gravity Die Casting (also called permanent mould process)

(b)Pressure Die Casting

There are two basic types of die casting machines:

(1)hot-chamber machines

(2) cold-chamber machines

Chvorinov's rule:

The local solidification time can be calculated using Chvorinov's rule, which is:



(Intermediate cooling rates from melt result in a dendritic microstructure.

Die casting materials:

  • Zinc: the easiest alloy to cast; high ductility; high impact strength; easily plated; economical for small parts; promotes long die life.
  • Aluminum: lightweight; high dimensional stability for complex shapes and thin walls;.
  • Magnesium: the easiest alloy to machine; excellent strength-to-weight ratio; lightest alloy commonly die cast.
  • Copper: high hardness; high corrosion resistance; highest mechanical properties of alloys die cast; excellent wear resistance.


  • Excellent dimensional accuracy
  • Smooth cast surfaces (1—2.5 μm rms).
  • Thinner walls can be cast
  • Inserts can be cast-in (such as threaded inserts, heating elements )
  • Reduces or eliminates secondary machining operations.
  • Rapid production rates.
  • tensile strength as high as 415 MPa .
  • Disadvantages:
  • Casting weight must be between 30 grams and 10 kg
  • Casting must be smaller than 600 mm
  • High initial cost.
  • Limited to high-fluidity metals.
  • A certain amount of porosity is common.
  • Thickest section should be less than 13 mm
  • A large production volume is needed to make this an economical .
