Defects analysis and Trouble shooting of Diecast (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.


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”.

Key Takeaways

  • Identify Die-casting defects
  • Understand root cause of defects
  • Procedures for controlling defects
  • Application of the right problem solving tools
  • How to implement with sustained gains
  • Horizontal deployment across similar parts
  • Standardising the implemented method and change in Control plan
  • Understand the importance of involving die designers during product design.
