Casting Magnesium with Direct Chill

Magnesium is a type of element that is easily adapted into metal form through industrial processing. Magnesium is one of the three most commonly used metals, and is revered for its strong and light properties. It is often added to aluminum, steel, iron, and titanium to help these metals achieve different properties. Before it can be used and combined with other metals, magnesium must be processed and cast into magnesium ingots. Magnesium casting is both simple and complicated, and there are several different ways to transform the raw element into... Read More

Cold and Hot Die Chamber Casting Machines

Die casting machines used by die casting manufacturers can be separated into two categories, cold and hot chamber machines. Hot chamber machines work primarily for metals with respectively low melting points. The hot chamber machine consists of a furnace, a plunger and a gooseneck tube. The die casting goes between moving injection cylinders. The cold chamber machine is used for metals with high melting points. The machine is basically the same as a hot chamber but a cold chamber replaces the furnace. These two machine types are typically used for... Read More

Why Magnesium Die Castings are Often Preferred

Magnesium is an important casting material for a number of reasons. Magnesium, as a casting material, is characterized by a number of very favorable qualities. Magnesium is a comparatively low-density metal, which means that it can be used to create low-weight castings. Also, magnesium is resistant to corrosion, which means that castings made of magnesium alloys can sometimes be used in contexts where they will be exposed to harsh environmental conditions. Magnesium alloys can also sometimes be used to form castings with RFI and EMI shielding capabilities. In addition to... Read More

Why Magnesium Die Castings?

Die casting is the process of shaping metal through the use of dies or stamps that help the metal take on a certain shape. Some dies look more like stamps, while others cut out metal shapes, and some even create 3D shapes by forcing the metal into a 3D mold. Die casting is used to shape a variety of types of metal, including steel, aluminum, iron, and copper. One type of die casting is used on magnesium metals. Magnesium die casters shape the magnesium into a variety of shapes and... Read More

Magnesium Die Castings

Die castings made out of magnesium are very lightweight, strong and corrosion resistant. Magnesium is used when weight is a factor and a light, thin product is necessary. It is a non-ferrous metal that exhibits good soundproofing, thermal conductivity and corrosion resistance. It is easily alloyed with other metals and is considered nontoxic in its pure form.

The automotive, electronics, military and aerospace industries use magnesium die cast products, including housings and interior components for computers and electronics, EMI enclosures, small parts for electronic equipment, steering wheel armatures, crash-engineered vehicle parts, power tools, loudspeakers, office electronics, laptops and cell phone hand sets. Since they are so lightweight, magnesium die castings are often used in the construction of automobiles and airplanes, lightening their weight and thus making them faster and reducing their fuel consumption. Also, electronics and computer equipment casings become very light and easily portable when constructed with magnesium. Die cast magnesium products are a silvery-white color and can be very thin, since magnesium has excellent flow characteristics. It also has 2/3 the density of aluminum, making it much more popular and cost effective.

Magnesium is one of the easiest metals to machine. It has a low melting point and is hot chamber die cut, which is a continuous-flow, efficient process; it is much faster than cold chamber die casting. Molten magnesium will not erode or damage the holding pot, plunger or cylinder. It is the only lightweight metal able to undergo high pressure die casting, which produces very complex parts. The magnesium ingots (raw pellets or scraps) used in die casting are first heated to 150° C and then fed into the holding pot where they are then heated until molten. Once in liquid form, the magnesium is fed into the shot sleeve by a plunger, which comes in direct contact with the metal. Under high pressure, the magnesium is forced into the mold, coating it completely and evenly. This process can be accomplished with much more ease than it can when casting other metals because magnesium exhibits such a high flow rate. Once solidified, the newly formed part is ejected when a clamping unit releases. If any scrap metal was produced, it can easily be recycled.
