Radiator housing

Radiator housing and Radiator bottom process

Drawing process (grinding)

Drawing process is to use a most bottom process. Drawing use some surface roughness and hardness has certain tools, common such as abrasive paper, file, etc, to deal with the object surface unidirectional, repeated or rotating friction, with the aid of the tool rough surface friction of scissors cutting effect to remove processing surface bulge objects; Of course, rubdown bulge content at the same time also on the original flat surface cause scratches. So should adopt from coarse to fine gradual process, and gradually reduce processing surface rough degree.Aluminum die casting

Drawing process features: a parallel grinding crack

Disk milling process (cutting)

Disk milling process is to point to will radiator bottom fixed after the high speed rotating tool cutting radiator surface, tool always in the same plane internal rotation, so cut out of the bottom very flat. And the same drawing technology, dish milling process of the tools being used more fine, cutting the bottom level of the higher level. Disk milling process of manufacturing cost is higher, but relative drawing only need two or three processes, more efficient, and the effect is ideal.

Disk milling process features: of arc grinding crack

CNC machine tool

For the Radiator housing or pther type of aluminum die casting parts, When we got die casting parts by high pressure die casting process. CNC machine tool applied to radiator of the bottom level processing mainly USES the technology is still milling. But with the traditional dish milling is different, CNC milling machine tool can through the single chip microcomputer accurate control and radiator of the relative distance between. Cutter contact fin base, both horizontal direction relative motion, then to the traditional dish milling cutter in the void left untreated cutting part, and to achieve complete plane effect, no any subsequent treatment can obtain mirror the general effect, roughness can be less than 0.001 mm.aluminium die casting

Other processes

For aluminium die casting, magnesiumd die casting, and zinc die casting parts. In addition to the above several outside, still have other radiator bottom processing technology, such as polishing, alodizing, powder coating, painting, however, relatively speaking, polishing processing are more beautiful considerations of radiator, radiator bottom flatness without too much improved, and the treatment cost is higher.

As we’ve mentioned, radiator bottom no matter how to deal with this kind of mechanical process could not make totally standard flat surface, the CPU and radiator between ravine or void is always inevitable. In these the air gap on the radiator of the conduction ability has a lot of influence, well known, air thermal resistance is very high, so must with other material to reduce the thermal resistance, or radiator of conduction performance will sell at a discount greatly, even can’t play a role. This is the origin of the heat conduction medium. Its role is to fill heat source such as CPU and the radiator greatly small gap, increases the heat sources and heat radiator contact area.

Die Casting Manufacturer

Die Casting Manufacturer for Aluminium, Zinc, Magnesium

The die casting is manufacturing process of casting accurately dimensioned, sharply defined, smooth or textured surface of metal parts, it is used to provide a beautiful finish to the different types of metal parts. Most die castings are made from non-ferrous metals, especially zinc, aluminum, magnesium, lead, pewter and tin-based alloys, depending upon the type of material being cast, a hot or cold chamber machine is used there are various type of die casting is done according to user’s requirements and the metal parts are designed in a well stylish way with a smooth finish.

The different types of casting include aluminum die casting, zinc die casting, magnesium die casting and so on, all of those type of die casting we called high pressure die casting, means use high pressure to inject the lquid material into the mold and getting cold and get the part which is according to our diesgn.

Aluminum die casting

The type of casting used to cast lightweight metal. In aluminum die casting, different types of aluminum is sued, and it is provided more protection to the metals to be casted with aluminum, it provides high dimensional stability for complex shapes and thin walls. It has good corrosion resistance. Include better mechanical properties. It has high thermal and electrical conductivity. And it can retain strength at high temperature.

Magnesium die casting.

Magnesium die casting is easiest metal to machine. It has the reputation for flammability. And its melting point is 600 degree centigrade. It uses powder coating, wet painting, hard anodizing and same plating materials for finishing.

It is the lightest alloy commonly used for die casting, it can be considered as the excellent strength weigh metal cater. But has a low corrosion resistance, which makes it less efficient

Zinc die casting

It is an ideal metal for casting. It is used to cast complex shapes easily, used in the creation of very thin walls. That are strong nonetheless. It can provide and attractive finish to your metal products at a low cost. It has outstanding corrosion resistance and increases the life of metal. It has the highest ductility. Provides benefits like high impact strength.

Can be easily plated, promises long mold life. Economical for small die parts.

Why we need die casting parts?

When we want to provide a better look to our metal parts then die casting is a process that can do this for us. For improving the quality and smoothly of metal machine parts we require the die casting

Advantages of die casting

These are the reasons that tell us that hoe much die casting is useful for us.

Provide excellent dimension accuracy faster production rates smooth cat surface, thinner walls can be cast.

Reduce of eliminate secondary machine operations. The casting of low fluidity metal can also be done easily

Magnesium Die Casting

Die casting with Magneisum Die Casting, aluminum and zinc die casting

Die casting is simply the pouring of molten into a mold to make a metal object. We will be looking into aluminum die casting, magnesium die casting and zinc die casting. These come with differences as well as their own advantages and disadvantages

The process is usually the same for different metals. we call this process and high pressure die casting process. It starts with steel die casting tool being fitted into the casting machine. Then the mold is closed followed by injection of molten metal through the injection barrel whereupon it is forced into the mold. It is then cooled and ejected from the mold.

The process is pretty much the same for aluminum, magnesium and zinc die casting as they are the most common alloys used. Only the alloys and the machines differ depending on the size of the mold, usually, they may be brush finished. Chrome-plated or powder coated

The differences

Die casting sometimes involves different alloys such as aluminum, zinc, magnesium, is used together to cast the molds. However, they individually have their strengths and weaknesses.

Aluminum is one of the lighted metals but is rarely cat in its purest form. Some industries are using it in the production of engines. It is most commonly used in automotive components, communications equipment, powder tools, electronics, gear cases, and toys.

Magnesium alloys are used commonly for structural components. It is highly pure offering cast ability, resistance against corrosion, and strength, magnesium die casting is commonly used for automotive, recreational products, and portable tools, the requirement less machine than aluminium.

Zinc die casting a greater variance when it comes to thickness and is more tolerant, they are also strong castings than most of common alloys, zinc requires lower pressure and temperature than aluminum and magnesium. The advantages and disadvantages.

While die casting has been around for centuries, die casting using aluminum and zinc only came about in the last century they were stronger than alloys made up of lead and tin. Today, most die cast uses high pressure to cast the metals into the molds. such as magnesium or even brass die csating process is used in the industrial requirement.

When looking at the advantages of the three common alloys, zinc comes up to top. They are more cost-effective than aluminum and magnesium the main advantage of zinc is that you can cat things that aluminum cannot, by going into more intricate and detailed feature without requiring additional machining operations. Going with aluminum will require machining, thus incurring additional costs. However, aluminum can handle stronger tensile pressure and is very corrosion resistant. Magnesium offers a balance between the two. But is more expensive than aluminum. Also, aluminium die casting lasts so much longer than magnesium making aluminum the most widely used alloy for die casting

Zinc has lower melting point and is considered the most cast able alloy compared to aluminum and magnesium. Because of this, usually aluminum and zinc are used together to get highest strength and resistance.


So while they follow the same process, zinc die casting requires less pressure and temperature as well as is more cost-effective, while aluminum is more corrosion-resistant and can stretch under tensile the two, but aluminum is less expensive

in comparison, aluminum, magnesium, zinc are all ideal specific component where their properties shine

Why cast iron bench ends are perfect for you

Why cast iron bench ends are perfect for you

What is one way to ensure that you don’t have the same product design as other people in your place? You either make sure that the product is produced at a limited stock, or you make your own. Some people resort to the latter for a number of reasons. Either they would like to personalize their product and let their creativity get the best of them or they would very much like an inexpensive alternative. Making your own product provides that opportunity.

Making your own bench is easy, if it is wooden. You just gather the necessary materials and tools, and download a free tutorial from the internet on how to make one and voila! You have your wooden bench. But what do you do for a Auminum casting? Unless you’re into molding and soldering yourself, cast iron bench ends are the answer to your solution.

Bench ends are the sides of benches and are sold in pairs. They are intricately designed sides, and once you purchase them, the only thing you have to do is make the body of the bench yourself. This is fairly easy, and you could use any material, but the most common is wood.

The following are some of the features of cast iron bench ends.

Diversity of designs

The malleability of metal casting allows it to be soldered and molded into almost any design. The cast iron bench ends have a number of designs that are attractive, authentic and unique. Whether the buyer is into contemporary or modern designs, traditional designs or unconventional designs, the cast iron bench ends have it all.

The material usedAluminum die casting

Cast iron is very durable and it can withstand harsh conditions. Be it rain, snow, hail, the sun or the mist, cast iron can easily weather that. Products made of this material can last a number of years and if given proper care, it could last a lifetime. Cast iron usually refers to grey iron, and has a low melting point and good fluidity. It has excellent resistance to deformation, and wear resistance. These make it an ideal material to be used in benches.

Cast iron bench ends can be found anywhere. They can be found in malls. They can be found in antiques shops and thrift shops. But instead of strolling around under the heat of the sun, you could easily contact your local furniture dealer and he/she can help you locate a pair. Another alternative would be the internet.

Cast Aluminum Patio Furniture

Cast Aluminum Patio Furniture Elegant BUT?

Boy it’s time to make a change; you’ve had friends over for the last time where they have to sit on that old, dirty plastic patio furniture.  I know you tried to paint them and it just didn’t work nearly as well as they made it look on the commercials.  You have changed the table cloth some many times you should have bought stock in the company, or at least purchased it in bulk.

What to do, what to do?  You have always desired those elegant styles you’ve seen on the home shows.  But, the last time you looked at some pieces in the neighborhood big box store like, teak or wrought iron, you almost fell on the floor from sticker shock.  That’s not to mention telling your husband, he’d have a cow.  But still that furniture has to go.

Shazam, that’s why this sight is here, what about cast aluminum patio furniture?  What is it you ask?  This is a very well kept secret that you’re going to love and you’ll think you know something that none of your snooty neighbors know about.

Cast Aluminum Patio Furniture

Aluminum first came out in the early 1960’s and was primarily black.  It was painted and the paint would chip and scratch and really start to look bad in just a few short years.  It was light weight and would last but if you tried to paint it, it just wouldn’t look very good.

Today, we have what’s called “powder coating” and this stuff is so tuff and extremely durable.  It resists chipping and scratching.
Cast aluminum patio furniture can be found in any color and can be molded into any design pattern the mind can conceive.
It is a very classic look like teak or wrought iron and it’s less than half the price.  It is light weight, so it can be moved easily, clean up is a snap with just some soapy warm water
And you talk about durable; cast aluminum patio furniture can stand the hottest dessert sun, to tropical downpours of the southeast.

What are you waiting for?  If you are looking for that, you know what I mean, that classic and elegant look that you can be proud of for your next summer get together, aluminum Casting patio furniture is the perfect choice for you.   This could be the best decision you have ever made.
