WHY ALUMINUM DIE CASTING IS SO POPULAR
There are many reasons why die casting ( we normaly call high pressure die casting is die csating) is the process that many professionals turn to when they require access to non-ferrous shaped metal parts. Die casting can be a high-output process that produces products with high-tensile strengths and exceptional dimensional accuracy. It can also be used to produce highly-specialized products in low volumes, though this can be much more expensive. Professionals make use of die casting for the creation of many different kinds of metal products. A few of the most popular die casting materials include zinc, copper, lead and magnesium, but one of the most popular die casting materials is aluminum.
Aluminum die casting is a very important process for industry. The demand for aluminum die cast parts across industry is quite high. This is because aluminum is relatively inexpensive, it boasts very favorable physical qualities, such as corrosion resistance, and it can be cast with relative ease and reliability. Aluminum castings have applications in the energy industry, the aerospace industry, the automotive industry, the mining industry and many other industrial contexts. They can be found in aircraft, automobiles, HVAC systems, high-tech applications, pumps and many other applications.
Aluminum is also considered to be a very favorable casting material because it can be alloyed with other metals, such as magnesium, to give the finished die casting certain desired qualities. The only limit to the number of possible aluminum die casting configurations is the limit of the number of possible dies. As long as engineers can design a casting die for a given product, that product can be die cast. The process of die tooling can sometimes be expensive, but when used in large product runs, the cost of this initial investment is usually easily recouped. Because of the high product quality that can be achieved with aluminum die casting, the process is likely to remain highly popular throughout industry.
Trade Show: AIS Tech Expo
An important date is fast approaching if you’re in the metal works industry: the deadline for the open call for papers and presentations for the 2013 AIS Tech Expo is coming up on August 15th, 2012. Whether you have a theory extolling the virtues of aluminum die casting, zinc die casting and magnesium die casting, or you’d like to showcase your new technological developments, The Iron and Steel Technology Conference and Exposition would be a great place to strut your stuff.
If you would rather be a spectator at the show, it’s not too early to start making your plans to attend, even though you’re not facing the August 2012 deadline. The 2013 conference will be held May 6th-9th at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in the U.S.’s capitol of steel, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and it promises to be four days full of exciting events. Here are just some of the topics the Expo will cover: job safety, the environment and technological advances, casting, and transportation. These subjects are just a fraction of the numerous exhibits and papers the show will feature.
Not only is the AIS Tech Expo a great place to learn about new developments in your field, it’s also an excellent opportunity for you to get exposure for your business, meet new people in your industry, network and find new ways to conduct your craft, and even get your name out on the international market. There will be vendors from over 40 countries at the event, so if you’ve been wanting to break into the multi-national scene, this would be a wonderful chance for you to do so.
You can visit the AIS Tech Expo here and learn more about all that’s in store for you in Pittsburgh. Whether it’s your first time at the Expo or you’re a seasoned veteran of this massive industry event, you’re sure to find something that interests you.
