  • Q What are the types of die casting machines used in electric vehicle aluminum and zinc parts making?


    There are two types of die casting machines used in electric vehicle aluminum and zinc parts making: hot chamber die casting machines and cold chamber die casting machines.

  • Q What Are Aluminum Die Casting Machines?

    A Aluminum die casting machines  are powerful pieces of equipment that use high-pressure injection to create complex  aluminum parts . These machines work by heating aluminum to its melting point and injecting it into a steel die mold using a high-pressure plunger. The molten aluminum cools and solidifies inside the mold, taking on the shape of the die cavity. The resulting parts are highly accurate and precise, with very little post-processing needed.
  • Q Risk of Tool Breakage

    A In CNC machining, tool breakage can occur due to various reasons, including improper tool selection, excessive cutting forces, or material inconsistencies.
  • Q What are the most common defects in magnesium die casting?

    1. The most common defects in magnesium die casting are porosity, cold flow, shrinkage, and hot tearing. These can be prevented by using proper gating and venting techniques, careful temperature control, and proper design of the die and component.

  • Q What is the difference between a vertical and horizontal die casting machine?

    A A vertical die casting machine uses a vertical mold, and the molten metal is injected from the bottom of the mold, while a horizontal die casting machine uses a horizontal mold, and the molten metal is injected from a horizontal position.
  • Q What are the steps of the die casting process?

    A The steps of the die casting process involve applying a die lubricant, injecting molten metal into a die, allowing it to cool and solidify, ejecting the casting parts, and finally, trimming any excess material.
  • Q What factors should be considered when selecting a die casting machine for lamp or light spare parts production?


    When selecting a die casting machine for lamp or light spare parts production, several factors should be considered, such as the size and complexity of the parts, the desired production volume, and the specific properties of the metal alloy being used.

  • Q Material Limitations

    A While CNC machining can work with various materials, certain exotic or specialized materials may pose difficulties in terms of tool wear, machining speeds, or other factors.
  • Q How long does it take to produce a component using a magnesium die casting machine?

    1. The production time for a component will depend on its complexity and the size of the machine. However, magnesium die casting machines can produce components quickly and efficiently, often in a matter of seconds or minutes.

  • Q What industries commonly use aluminum die casting for their manufacturing needs?

    A Aluminum die casting is used in a wide range of industries, including automotive, aerospace, consumer goods, and medical devices. It is particularly popular for applications that require lightweight, high-strength parts with complex shapes and designs. Some common examples of products produced using aluminum die casting include engine blocks, transmission housings, and electronic enclosures.
  • Q How does a Vertical Die Casting Machine Work?

    A Vertical die casting machine working method:  A vertical die casting machine works by melting the metal in a furnace and then injecting it into a mold using high pressure. The mold is made of two parts, which are clamped together to create a cavity in the shape of the desired part. The molten metal is then injected into the cavity using a plunger, which exerts high pressure on the metal to ensure that it fills the cavity completely. Once the metal solidifies, the mold is opened, and the part is ejected.
  • Q Which metal works best for die casting?

    A Aluminum & Zinc works best for die casting. Magnesium, copper, brass, tin and lead are also used for custom casting parts as per usage.
  • Q What are some common applications of die casting lamp or light spare parts?


    Die casting lamp or light spare parts are commonly used in a wide range of applications, including residential and commercial lighting fixtures, automotive lighting, and streetlights.

  • Q Limited Flexibility for Some Geometries

    A Certain complex geometries, such as those with deep cavities or undercuts, may be challenging to machine using standard CNC processes.
  • Q What materials can be used in magnesium die casting machines?

    1. Magnesium die casting machines are designed specifically for use with magnesium alloys. Other materials, such as aluminum or ZAMAK/zinc, require different types of die casting machines.

  • Q Can aluminum die casting be used for large parts?

    A Aluminum die casting is generally suited for small to medium-sized parts. While it is possible to produce larger parts using die casting, the size of the die and the pressure required to fill the cavity limit the size of the parts that can be produced. For larger parts, other manufacturing processes such as sand casting or forging may be more suitable.
  • Q What is a Vertical Die Casting Machine?

    A vertical die casting machine  is a specialized type of casting machine that uses gravity to fill the mold cavity with molten metal. It is called a vertical machine because the mold is positioned vertically, and the molten metal is injected from the bottom of the mold. The vertical die casting machine is different from a horizontal die casting machine, which uses a horizontal mold and injects the metal from a horizontal position.
  • Q How does die casting compare to other manufacturing processes for lamp or light spare parts?


    Compared to other manufacturing processes, such as machining or injection molding, die casting offers several advantages. It allows for the production of complex parts with high precision, and can produce parts in large volumes quickly and efficiently.
