Aluminium casting is a process used to create complex parts and components with high precision. It involves pouring molten aluminium into a mold, which is then allowed to solidify and cool. This process is used in a wide range of industries including aerospace, automotive and construction. Alpha Engineering Company is an ISO 9001:2005 certified company that specializes in high-quality aluminium casting.
Benefits of Aluminium Casting :
• One of the significant benefits of aluminium casting is its versatility. The process can be used to create parts and components of various shapes and sizes, with high precision and accuracy.
• Aluminium casting is also a cost-effective process, as it eliminates the need for expensive tooling and machining. The process also produces parts with excellent surface finish and dimensional correctness.
• This is a lightweight and corrosion-resistant process, making it ideal for use in harsh environments.
Types of Aluminium Casting Processes :
There are several types of aluminium casting processes including sand casting, die casting and investment casting. Each of these processes has its unique advantages and disadvantages. The choice of process depends on the specific needs of the application as required by the customers.
Sand Casting : Sand casting is the most common and straightforward type of aluminium casting. It involves creating a mould out of sand, which is then filled with molten aluminium. Once the aluminium gets cooled, the sand mold is broken apart and the part is removed. Sand casting is ideal for producing large parts with simple shapes.
Die Casting : Die casting is a process used to produce complex shapes with maximum perfection. It involves injecting molten aluminium into a mould under high pressure. Die casting is ideal for producing parts with thin walls and complex geometries.
Investment Casting : Investment casting is a process used to produce parts with more clarity. It involves creating a wax pattern of the part, which is then coated with a ceramic material. The ceramic shell is then heated, causing the wax to melt and flow out, leaving a cavity in the shape of the part, this cavity is filled up with molten aluminium for processing and once the ceramic shell is broken away, the part is removed. Investment casting is ideal for producing parts with a variety of shapes.
