Low pressure die casting

Home » Low pressure die casting

With low pressure die casting, the mould is positioned horizontally in the machine. The liquid aluminium is compressed into the mould from underneath, at low speed and low overpressure through a riser pipe. This expels all the air out of the product cavity and creates a non-porous casting with high strength. To increase the strength even more, additional heat treatment can be used on the casting. The process is fully automatic, thus guaranteeing constant quality
