Plunger Lubricants and Porosity: How they interrelate within the Die Casting Process
Timothy Cowell, Technical Director, Hill and Griffith Company

High Pressure Die Casting is a manufacturing process in which molten metal is injected, with a die casting machine using applied force and high pressure, into a steel die to form various products (castings). Within this process, there are large numbers of variables that need to be controlled to make an acceptable casting. If these variables are not controlled then defects within the castings (parts) occur making them unusable.
