This series of courses is devoted to understanding and identifying the probable causes of defects in die castings.
And to determining and implementing solutions that minimize or eliminate the effects of the problem. Learn more at the North American Die Casting Association site.
Part 1 - Surface Defects Part I - This course opens with defect tracking and then discusses various factors that can contribute to poor surface conditions.
Date: November 5, 2018
Part 2 - Surface Defects Part II - This course completes the discussion of surface defects by completing the list of factors that can contribute to poor surface finish. Laminations and their causes and corrective measures are also addressed.
Date: November 6, 2018
Part 3 - Gas Porosity - This course describes how to identify gas porosity, discusses the sources and causes of gas porosity and provides corrective measures to minimize gas porosity.
Date: November 9, 2018
Part 4 - Shrinkage Porosity - This course describes how to identify shrinkage porosity, discusses the causes, provides corrective measures to minimize shrinkage porosity.
Date: November 19, 2018
Part 5 - Inclusions, Leakers and Cracks - This course discusses various types of inclusions and corrective measures to minimize inclusions. In addition, causes of leakers and corrective measures are presented. Lastly, the various causes of cracks in die castings are discussed.
Date: November 21, 2018
Part 6 - Flash, Solder, and Other Defects - This course is focused on the causes and corrective measures related to a number of defects including: blisters, sinks, solder, flash, erosion, out-gassing, and cold flakes.
