EC-411 - Die Casting Lubricants and Coolants

A one-day course that provides an in-depth examination of temperature control issues within the die casting process.

Workshop Summary:

A discussion of metal temperature control will explore not only furnace and distribution system issues but also will investigate the effects of metal temperature control on both casting quality and process. Die temperature control will look at measurement techniques, die sprays, cooling lines and the effect of cycle timing on die temperatures and casting quality. An in-depth discussion of both die and plunger lubricants will look at their chemistry, function, application and effects on casting production and quality as well as EPA and OSHA considerations in the workplace.
