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”.
