Die Casting Production

<<< Dies & Die Setting

By providing machine operators with some structured, formal training, there is less chance that bad habits or unsafe practices will become the norm on the factory floor.

Die Casting machines and dies are expensive investments. A few hours spent explaining correct procedures, and why they are important, will pay for itself many times over.

 


Cold Chamber Die Casting Machine Operation

ColdChamber02This subject covers the general principles for operating a cold chamber Die Casting machine in production, including; starting up, warm-up shots, establishing equilibrium, timings, lubrication, safety aspects, observations and closing down procedures. Ancilliary equipment, such as robots, reciprocators and conveyors are also described as well as basic trouble-shooting of common problems.

Die Coatings and Sand Cores

This subject covers those topics which are specific to Gravity and Low Pressure Die Casting production including the role of die coatings and important aspects of their application and the making and insertion of sand cores.

                                                   


Secondary Operations

secondary

It is rare that a Die Cast part is ready for sale when it comes out of the machine.

It is more likely that it will require secondary operations before it is ready to be shipped to the customer.

These subjects provide practical and useful information on the wide range of operations and processes that can be applied to Die Cast parts, including:

  • Trimming and Pressing
  • Drilling, Tapping and Machining
  • Polishing of castings
  • Surface finishes
  • Electroplating
  • Powder Coating
  • Painting

 


Inspection and Measurement 

inspectionThese subjects provide production staff with useful information about how the quality of Die Cast parts can be verified before they are sent to the customer.

Every person in production must be capable and confident of detecting parts which are not acceptable. This is a key requirement of all high quality suppliers.

 Describes and identifies different defects which can occur in Die Cast parts.
