Today I will be discussing on working principle of die casting process and its applications. Previously I’ve examined on different types of die casting process. if you can recall in the article, hot chamber and cold chamber was mentioned. These are ways of manufacturing parts in die casting. They will be out main focuses in this article.
working principle of die casting
Die casting is carryout firstly by spraying a mold cavity with a release agent to ensure easy and successful removal of casting. molten metal is pour into a casting chamber, which is connected to the mold cavity. piston here plays an important role by pressing liquid metal into a part call channel. Die casting with series of mold contains series of channel connected to them. At this point, casting solidifies under high pressure and remove. This principle is carryout same way on hot and cold chamber types of die casting. please try to know them.
Step by step process;
- Spraying mold with releasing agent
- Filling liquid alloys quickly into a chamber
- Pushing alloys to mold cavity under high pressure
- Allowing casting to solidify before removing from the machine.

As die casting is used for large series of production. It applications in many industries such as aerospace, domestic appliances, furniture, power tools, electronics, machinery, lighting technology etc.
Die casting is also applicable in automotive industries in producing wheels, blocks, cylinder heads, valve and manifolds.
And that is it for this article, working principle of die casting process. I hope you understand. Freely ask question via my comment box and please share. Thanks for reading!
