High pressure aluminium die casting

Materials

Our engineering team will help you to select the most appropriate alloy to meet your product needs. In addition, they will inform you about the advantages and disadvantages of each alloy present in the market.

We offer our extensive expertise in the employment of Al-Si alloys which,

constitute the biggest part of our current work presented below.

[AlSi9Cu3(Fe)] This is a highly versatile alloy used by designers for a wide range of industrial parts meeting waterproof quality standards. Good mechanical resistance at high temperatures and easy machining. Suitable for successive heat treatments.

Density = 2,70g/cm3
Injection moulded part hardness = 80-120HB
Tensile Strenght = 240-310 N/mm2
Tensile Strength = 13-17 Ms/m

EN AC-47.100  [AlSi12Cu1(Fe)] This alloy allows for a wide range of industrial applications on complex geometries and thin walls thanks to its excellent castability.

Lower mechanical resistance and stiffness than the AC-46.000, though good machining. Not suitable for successive heat treatments.

Density = 2,65g/cm3
Injection moulded part hardness = 75-95HB
Tensile Strength = 225-265 N/mm2
Electrical conductivity = 15-20 MS/m

EN AC-44.300 [AlSi12(Fe)] This alloy has good corrosion resistance. Lower stiffness and worse performance in machining. Poor response to successive heat treatments due to lacking Mg.

Density = 2,68g/cm3
Injection moulded part hardness = 60-100HB
Tensile Strength = 220-280 N/mm2
Electrical conductivity = 16-22 MS/m
