This course presents the basics of understanding aluminum alloy chemistry of the alloys used in high pressure aluminum diecasting (HPDC), solidification and microstructures, the influence of impurities and subsequent melt treatment, emerging process development, melt quality analytical techniques and useful comparison with other casting processes. The main topic of Part 3 is How various floor and laboratory techniques are used to assess quality. In addition, alternative processes such as squeeze casting, semi-solid molding (SSM), Low Pressure, Vacuum Diecasting and how they compare with the conventional HPDC process will be presented.
