From North American Die Casting Association's May 11, 2016 eNewsletter
Register for NADCA's Porosity Webinar Series
NADCA surveyed designers and purchasers about the advantages and problems with die cast components. The companies that used die cast products were asked to identify some of the common problems they encounter with die castings. More than one in three specifically identified `Porosity’ as a common problem.
Since porosity is a common concern among die casters NADCA created a series of webinars focusing on the various aspects of porosity. These webinars have been rebroadcast each year and it is estimated that over 600 individuals have attended. Each presentation will not only address important information on the topic but also provide time for questions, answers, and discussion.
Part 1 - An Introduction to the Causes of Porosity- This webinar will cover the causes of porosity. In particular the sources of shrink porosity and gas porosity will be explained. It will conclude with traditional concepts for reducing porosity formation.
Date: May 11, 2016
Part 2 - Control Porosity with Processing Parameters - Many die casting process variables affect the final porosity level in a casting. This webinar will discuss the effect of these different parameters on porosity. It will connect these processing parameters back to the underlying porosity formation mechanisms.
Date: May 12, 2016
Part 3 - Design for Reduced Porosity - Part design is the number one factor affecting the final porosity in a casting. This is due to the physical sources of porosity. This webinar will explain casting and tooling design choices that can be used to control porosity.
Date: May 18, 2016
Part 4 - Predicting and Measuring Porosity - Achieve reduced porosity through adequate measurement and prediction. This webinar will discuss different ways to predict porosity. In addition it will explain some basics of digital porosity measurement. Any successful porosity reduction program must include porosity prediction and measurement.
Date: May 19, 2016
Each webinar is $69 for Corporate Members, $99 for Individual Members or $119 for Non-Corporate Members.
