Online Training on Defects Analysis and Trouble shooting of Die Cast (PDC) parts

Date : 9 to 10 December, 2020

Time : 1400 Hrs to 1700 Hrs


High pressure die casting is often the process of choice because of its cost effectiveness and superior quality. The process produces components that have tight dimensional tolerance, good and consistent surface finish and near net shape. This enables manufacturers to make cost-effective small volume runs and is also cost competitive for large production runs. Aluminium die cast components have the property of being very light weight with significant mechanical properties and are used extensively in the automotive industry.
However, defects are the real challenges for any die casting industry and the quality of a foundry can be increased by minimizing the casting defects during production. Industry’s margin (profit) lies in rejected parts! Hence all the casting industries have a need address these issues on priority.
Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organising 2 day programme “Defects Analysis and Trouble shooting of Die Cast (PDC) parts”.

Focus Areas

  • Recap of PDC process – Types, applications
  • Defects in PDC parts – What, Why and How?
    • Surface defects
    • Laminations
    • Gas porosity
    • Blisters
    • Flow porosity
    • Shrink porosity
    • Heat Sinks
    • Leakers
    • Erosion / cavitation etc
    • Bending / warping etc.
  • Case studies from Industry
  • Defect Analysis and elimination
  • DFM - How product design prevents and / or eliminates some of the defects.

Key Take Aways

After undergoing the programme, the participants will be able to -

  • Identify Die-casting defects
