Die Casting

Castool’s Systems Approach – No single component of the die casting production process should be examined or evaluated individually. Only if the entire process is considered as an integrated system, with all parts working together in common cause, can maximum efficiency be approached.

Plunger Tips

The plunger tip is a critical element of aluminum die casting process. Its’ successful operation depends on a number of factors, most importantly, its’ efficient interaction with a round, straight, thermally and therefore dimensionally stable shot sleeve.

Lube Drop & Combi-Lube

The lubrication system has been developed to reduce the friction between the sleeve and the plunger; to thus ensure the smooth passage of the plunger through the sleeve. This is necessary for the long shot sleeve or when there is excessive wear under the pour spout.

Shot Sleeves

The shot sleeve is a critical element of the aluminum die cast process.  For maximum productivity – and also maximum operating life for both shot sleeve and plunger tip – the plunger must consistently move smoothly, and at a steady speed through a perfectly round, straight, shot sleeve.

Chill Vents

In order to increase strength to weight ratio of casting, the casting needs to be heat-treated. The heat treatment temperature could go as high as 400ºC and for as long as 24 hours. The air trapped inside could expand and cause blistering during heat treatment, especially for aluminum alloys.
