Die Casting with Aluminum – Versatility Meets High Performance
Aluminum castings are lightweight, have excellent physical properties, have high dimensional stability, have high electrical conductivity, and can withstand high operating temperatures. Because aluminum is also corrosion resistant and can be cast easily, it is a good choice for casting. Aluminum alloys account for the vast majority of all die aluminum die casting parts produced around the world.
Aluminum is a very versatile material that can be used in a variety of applications, providing mechanical designers with significant advantages when designing lightweight parts that can withstand high temperatures. Aluminum die casting is frequently used in the defense and medical industries because it is a lightweight and durable alternative to other metals that retains maximum structural stability. It is also an excellent thermal conductor for heat dissipation while maintaining rigidity and resilience when used for EMI/RFI shielding in the telecom and electronics industries.
What is the advantage of aluminum?
• Lightweight; high dimensional stability; corrosion resistance; excellent mechanical properties; good machining characteristics; superior EMI and RFI shielding properties
• High thermal and electrical conductivity • High strength-to-weight ratio • A variety of decorative and protective finishes • Excellent choice for high-temperature coating processes • Made entirely of recycled materials and is completely recyclable
Aluminum is frequently used when weight is a consideration because of its comparable strength to zinc alloys. One of the most significant advantages of using aluminum is that it has a very low specific gravity, making it one of the lightest structural materials available today.
What are some of the most common uses of aluminum?
• Because aluminum castings are resistant to corrosion, they are frequently used in marine-grade applications. • Because aluminum is excellent at dissipating heat, it is used in a wide range of networking and infrastructure equipment in the telecommunications and computing industries.
• Aluminum zinc die casting offer EMI/RFI shielding, rigidity, and durability.
• Die cast aluminum is an excellent material for electronic connectors and housings because it has excellent electrical performance and shielding properties, even in high-temperature environments.
The best part is that it's completely free.
Because of our strong commitment to environmental protection, A&B uses only 100 percent recycled materials in all of its products. Aluminum is a popular choice for designers across a wide range of industries because of its simplicity in die casting, as well as its lighter weight and durability.
