What Is Cold Chamber Die Casting

Cold Chamber Die Casting

Cold chamber die casting is the preferred manufacturing process for metals that maintain high melting points. Typically, these metals include aluminum alloys, zinc alloys, brass, and copper. The requirements for cold chamber die casting include an outside furnace and a ladle to pour the molten metal. Cold chamber die casting methods are known for producing denser metal castings.

The Cold Chamber Die Casting Process

Cold chamber die casting is ideal for metals with high melting points and corrosive properties. Compared to hot chamber die casting, cold chamber die casting solves the corrosion problem by separating the melt pot from the injector components. The process begins when molten metal is ladled from the furnace into the shot chamber through a pouring hole. Next, the plunger forces metal through the shot chamber into the die at pressures ranging from 2,000 and 20,000 psi.

Cold Chamber vs Hot Chamber Die Casting

With cold-chamber die casting, metal is first heated to achieve a molten state in a separate furnace. The molten metal is then transported to the casting machine and fed into the machine’s chamber. The machine uses a pressurized plunger to force the molten metal into the mold cavity. This separated process directly differentiates cold chamber die casting from hot chamber casting.

Cold Chamber Die Casting Advantages

Cold chamber die casting is a practical, cost-effective process that can create a broad range of shapes and components compared to other manufacturing processes. The cold chamber die casting process can create parts with long service life and may be designed to complement the visual appeal of the surrounding part. Some of the direct benefits that the cold chamber die casting process provides include:

  • Increased Strength & Weight – Cold chamber die-cast parts are more substantial than plastic injection moldings having the exact dimensions. Thin wall castings are more robust and lighter than those possible with other casting methods. Plus, because die castings do not consist of separate parts welded or fastened together, the strength is that of the alloy rather than the joining process.
  • Dimensional Accuracy & Stability – This process produces durable and dimensionally stable parts while maintaining close tolerances and heat resistance.
  • High-Speed Production – The cold chamber process provides complex shapes within closer tolerances than many other mass production processes. Little or no machining is required, and thousands of identical castings can be produced before additional tooling is required.
  • Simplified Assembly – Cold chamber die castings provide integral fastening elements, such as bosses and studs. Holes can be cored and made to tap drill sizes, or external threads can be cast.
  • Multiple Finishing Techniques – Cold chambered parts can be produced with smooth or textured surface finishes, easily plated or finished with a minimum of surface preparation.
