(Reposted from the North American Die Casters Association Newsletter, thanks!)
The die casting process requires efficient heat removal from the solidifying metal. Faster heat removal means shorter cycle time thus higher productivity and profitability. Ideally, heat should be removed primarily by internal cooling lines. However, spraying is widely practiced in die casting as a complementary method of removing heat. This two part webinar will review the heat transfer mechanisms of for these cooling methods, and the respective design principles used in die casting. The impact of the cooling method on die life and casting quality will also be discussed.
Part 2 - Thermal Control in Die Casting:Spraying - Spraying is widely used to complement removal of heat by cooling lines. While an important factor in thermal control, it also plays a role in casting release and preventing soldering. This webinar will review the heat transfer mechanism and principles of spray cooling. It will discuss briefly other roles of spraying and how it affects the process and part integrity.
