Electric power casting parts are used in various types of machinery like jet boilers, electric motors and generators. They are available for purchase online or they can be sourced directly from a manufacturer.
Casting Simulation: Reducing Errors in Production
The use of casting simulation is a valuable tool that can accurately predict the defects that could arise during the production process. These defects include temperature (soldering, hot tear, cold shut), velocity (erosion, die flash, turbulence), pressure (blow holes, air entrapment) and solidification (shrinkage porosity, non-fill).
Weight Reduction Solutions: Aluminum
Aluminium is the material of choice for many automotive applications due to its strength-to-weight ratio advantages over steel. As a result, aluminium die-casting has become an important part of the automotive industry and has been able to help automakers produce lighter, more efficient vehicles.
Magnesium die-casting is another viable option for many applications. This alloy is similar to aluminum in both density and melting temperature, but has about two-thirds the thermal conductivity.
The production of zinc-made products can be a good option for reducing weight, particularly in applications that require tight tolerances and high yield strength. Zinc can also be cast thinner than either aluminum or magnesium and withstand extreme fatigue requirements.
Energy Consumption: Conclusion
In the metalcasting industry, the metal melting stage is one of the most energy-intensive processes. As a result, this can have an impact on energy consumption throughout the operation. DETR (1997) identified the key energy consumers in the casting process using Pareto analysis and determined which subsystems to focus improvement efforts on.
