High Integrity Casting of Lightweight Components - Download

Description:
A critical step in the overall aluminum die casting process journey to producing a high integrity product is the preparation of the molten metal. A wealth of knowledge has been gained in recent years and has been compiled in this single comprehensive text, making it an absolute must for those serious about maximizing and controlling metal quality. Detailed technical information is presented to provide the reader with a thorough understanding of the key parameters that impact metal quality.

The book consists of eight chapters. The initial chapter describes the die casting process variants including high vacuum, semi-solid and squeeze casting. Next, a description of aluminum die casting alloy designations, effects of alloying elements, applications, properties and property predictions is presented. Then metal melting, transferring and holding is meticulously addressed. Furnace types and maintenance, refractories, and heat transfer aids are also described.

Pertinent to the achievement and control of high quality metal, the following topical areas are covered in-depth: sludge formation and prediction methods; dross formation and minimization methods; hydrogen gas, inclusions and their formation mechanisms; melt cleaning systems and techniques; and, quality assurance methods including metal assessment techniques and non-destructive evaluation of cast parts.

The preparation of this book includes contributions from engineers, scientists, and academicians with expertise in metal casting.
