Zinc Die casting is an integral part of all the metallurgical industries and is growing rapidly because of its growing needs in the most important civilized sectors of the world. Of these, the aerospace industry is the most important application area where the molten metals formed in the construction of various parts are used. Today, it is also an integral part of the construction industry for the manufacture of various tools.
Created in the year 1838, die casting equipment was created for mobile use in the printing industry. However, its high level of performance and profitability has led to rapid growth in the consumer goods and household appliances sectors.
Among the various metal alloys used in this technology are zinc, magnesium, copper, tin, and aluminum, to name a few. Of these, zinc diecast is the most popular because its metal is resilient, has high impact resistance and is easy to be plated. Also, because zinc is cheaper than other metals and mixed metals, zinc is used in the manufacture of smaller parts more economically. Additionally, the best thing about zinc is having a low melting point and long service life.
Die-cast aluminum products are also popular, especially in the aerospace industry, which applies certain standards for safety and aesthetic reasons. Aluminum is known to be lightweight but shows high dimensional stability for complex shapes and thin walls. Besides, it is resistant to corrosion and has high thermal and electrical conductivity, as well as durability at high temperatures. Among the various instruments used in the aviation industry requiring die-casting products are aircraft seats, durable components for cabin or baggage.
In addition to the aviation sector, the automotive sector also uses aluminum casting technology to produce high quality, economical and utilitarian components. Also, this technology is used in the manufacture of electronic devices such as mobile phones and MP3 players, digital cameras and flat-screen monitors. The automotive industry also uses zinc smelting products for durability.
The use of this technology in many industrial sectors has many advantages. The first reason is that it offers excellent dimensional accuracy with smooth and thin cast iron walls, which are necessary to achieve desired results. This is very important to reduce costs because secondary machining operations are not required later. Because of all these reasons, metal smelting has become an important industry today.
