In a high pressure die casting process, molten metal or metal alloy is injected at high speed and high pressure into the mould. There are two main types: “cold-chamber” and “hot-chamber” processes. Depending on the metal being used, the injection unit that fills the mould can either be hot chamber or cold chamber. In hot chamber die casting, the metal is held within the diecasting machine itself, then drawn into the chamber and forced into the mould by the injection piston. These parts of the machine are in constant contact with the molten metal. In cold chamber process the metal is first melted in a separate furnace and transferred to a holding furnace, then poured into a shot sleeve and injected into the mould.
The hot-chamber process is applicable only for zinc and other low melting point alloys that does not affect and erode metal pots cylinders and plungers.
Better suited for metals with high melting points such as aluminum, magnesium, copper alloys etc, metal is liquified and then ladled into a cold chamber where a hydraulically operated plunger pushes the metal into the die. High-pressure can provide thinner cross-sections than any other casting process, with wall thicknesses under 0.40mm depending on the size of your component and requirements.With high-pressure production, thick sections can be difficult to cast.
Low Pressure Die Casting(LPDC)
Low pressure die-casting primarily uses alloys with low melting points and allows for the production of components up to around 150 kg. The advantages are very high strength and the ability to form complex geometries, whilst maximising material usage. The process is less suitable for very thin-walled parts where the required thickness is less than 3mm.

Advantages of the high pressure die casting
✔ High pressure die casting technology can produce very large light alloy parts, in high volumes and great speeds. ✔ ue to the high number of parts, short cycle times and high process reliability, high cost-effectiveness is achieved in die casting. ✔ These machines deliver light alloy parts with high precision, superior surface finish, high strength values and high dimensional stability, stabilityexcellent uniformity and optimum mechanical properties. And the post-processing of the cast parts is reduced. ✔ The high pressure die casting process can also produce components with thin walls and "co-cast” parts with different types of inserts, such as screws and liners, that then become an integral part of the product itself.
Die Casting Materials
Aluminum, Magnesium, Copper, Molybdenum, Zinc etc.
Examples of metals that can be best served by cold chamber machines include aluminum, brass, copper, iron, nickel, and steel. Hot chamber casting is better suited to working with metals such as tin and zinc as well as alloys that have lower melting points.
Top Priority For Mass Production
Die casting is widely used by many engineers and manufacturers due to the ability to create a wide number of high-strength, intricate parts at continuous high speed, reducing part cost. Everything begins with casting the mold itself. The mold cavity is created by using two steel dies which have been machined into shape. while it has higher startup costs than some other processes, over the long-term it can produce less expensive per-unit costs, especially for mass production. The rugged dies, while a huge capital investment, can produce hundreds of thousands of parts without maintenance, meaning die casting is best used in high volume parts production.
