Material Design and Selection
We choose the most appropriate materials for each project to ensure for cost effectiveness, elevated mechanical properties and lightweight solutions. Aluminium is the material of the future and has an important place in global trade. As a consequence, especially in recent years, the use of aluminium has increased in all sectors.
The advantages of aluminium used in High Pressure Casting are:
- It is a material that allows the production of metal parts with accurate, high precision, smooth and/or textured surfaces
- It is corrosion resistant
- It has high conductivity
- It has a good hardness and strength-to-weight ratio
- It is suited to fast and high quantity production
- It is more cost effective than alternative casting processes
One of the major benefits of aluminium die casting is that it creates lighter parts, offering more surface treatment options than other casting alloys. Moreover, aluminium is versatile and corrosion resistant; it maintains great dimensional stability for thin-walled parts and can be used in almost any industry.
Aluminium is a material which is as light as it is durable. Consequently, it results in savings both in the production of parts and in the fuel/energy consumption of the resulting product. Aluminium is also preferred by many industries as it reduces fuel/energy costs, which is one of the most important expense items for industry today..
Another upside of aluminium is that it can be made highly resistant to oxidation and corrosion as a result of various processes. This feature, which highlights its durability in environmental conditions, provides added economic benefit by providing long-term use of products.
Although silicon is generally preferred, it is possible to add different elements to aluminium to shape it, according to differing needs. Copper, silicon, magnesium, manganese, zinc, titanium, iron, nickel, tin, lead, chromium and boron are the foremost of these elements, and aluminium can be made to provide many advantages according to need.
Almost 95% of aluminium can be recycled and reused which means it is one of the materials with which is least damaging to nature and the environment.
Great care is needed in the process of High-pressure Casting manufacturing as it relates to obtaining the supply, the transportation, processing and the storage of materials and raw materials that are its most important factors. At KALKANCI, we carry out all the necessary quality controls for materials supplied and provide the necessary inventory and product tracking with utmost professionalism so as to offer the best to our customers.
