The 2017 Die Casting Congress and Tabletop Needs Your Papers!

Posted by Hill and Griffith Company on Mar 22, 2017 4:21:27 PM

(This week's post comes from the March 8, 2017 by NADCA in Industry News. )

The Die Casting Congress and Tabletop is interested in your paper! Submit a proposal today to the NADCA Paper System!

NADCA would like to urge all metalcasters, researches and suppliers to submit papers on new technologies, procedures, equipment, and other innovations that contribute to productivity and quality enhancement in the metalcasting industry. Especially desired are papers relating practical experience and case studies from casting personnel, and papers on metalcasting management and marketing strategies.

Here's an example of a technical article by Hill and Grifftih's Tim Cowell, Technical Director, published in DIE CASTING ENGINEER, official publication of the North American Die Casting Association

Introduction
In the Die Casting Industry, many of the castings manufactured undergo secondary operations incorporating the use of paints, adhesives and other polymers such as RTV (Room Temperature Vulcanization).  The application of these types of materials requires the polymer to bond to the metal substrate (surface) of the casting.  When this bond fails, it is considered to be an adhesion problem. For the die caster, this can be a very costly problem; therefore, it is imperative that it be solved quickly.

To gain a better understanding of the problem and its potential solution, the following points will be discussed. 

  1. What creates Adhesion?
  2. What prevents Adhesion?
  3. Assessing the Problem
  4. Solving the Problem

Read the complete article, "Resolving Adhesion Problems in Post Die Casting Operations," here.

Die Casting Video of Fan Blade Manufacturing

Posted by Hill and Griffith Company on Mar 15, 2017 3:03:18 PM

(This week's post is a video that illustrates the typical spray nozzle arrangement for casting fan blades. )

From the die casting video published on Jul 9, 2013, "Die casting is a customized manufacturing method for producing OEM aluminum and zinc parts by forcing molten aluminum and zinc through high pressure into solid steel molds. These steel molds, called dies, are designed to create complicated layouts with a pinpoint accuracy and high volume production. Die cast parts can be precisely shaped, with rough or smooth material sides, and are optimized for a wide variety of attractive and serviceable finishes."
