NADCA Video Highlight - Why Diecasting Plunger Shot Monitors are Important

Posted by Hill and Griffith Company on Apr 10, 2019 4:40:58 PM

The material presented in this video are some highlights from NADCA’s online webinar - Basic Diecasting Machine Operator Training: Why Shot Monitors are Important

Many die casting process variables affect the final porosity level in a casting. This course will discuss the effect of these different parameters on porosity. It will connect these processing parameters back to the underlying porosity formation mechanisms covered in the first porosity course. Start solving porosity by optimizing your process parameters for reduced porosity.

NADCA Video Highlight - Basic Diecasting Operator Training

Posted by Hill and Griffith Company on Mar 27, 2019 9:52:04 PM

The material presented in this video are some highlights from NADCA’s online webinar - Basic Operator Training: Recognizing and Controlling Flow Defects.

The operator will learn how to recognize flow (surface) defects and what causes these types of defects. This course will address various operating parameters that impact flow defects, such as die temperature, die spray, cooling line flow rate, fill time and metal temperature. The operator will also learn corrective measures that can be taken to reduce and control flow defects, including preferred operating ranges for the various parameters.
