The material presented in this video are some highlights from NADCA’s online webinar - Die Casting Defects - Shrinkage Porosity. This course describes how to identify shrinkage porosity, discusses the causes, and provides corrective measures to minimize shrinkage porosity.
Shrink porosity can also be reduced by metal pressure. With the high pressure die casting process to use intensification in all of these processes whether it is the whole time in zinc or intensification in aluminum or magnesium. You are using those high pressure features to fill those voids. So, you fill the cold chamber, you go through pour-hole close, slow shot, fast shot. Then you go into intensification phase. You enter into the intensification phase prior to the gates becoming solid. We are filling those voids. Those voids start to develop when shrink occurs and then you are increasing the pressure of the metal until it goes past those thin areas and feeds that shrink.
