SOLUTIONS FOR HPDC

We see growth in large structural automotive and e-mobility parts. These parts are different from conventional HPDC parts because they are expanding in size. Several parts are integrated which makes tooling more complex.

The die-life generally decreases for manufacturing of structural Aluminium High Pressure Die Casting (Al HPDC) parts in comparison with the manufacturing of conventional Al HPDC parts.

To achieve suitable die life for structural Al HPDC, we will have to utilize the following criteria:

  1. Die Material must have a high thermal fatigue resistance
  2. Die Material must be homogenous
  3. For dies, especially those that come in large dimensions, appropriate heat treatment parameters must be set in place.
