How to Reduce The Aluminum Alloy Die Casting Cost

How to Reduce Design Costs

Excellent tool design is critical to the overall success of the aluminum die casting project. When you have solid parts, you want to make sure that the parts are consistent from the first photo to the last photo. No matter how advanced your aluminum die casting machine is if you cut costs for cheaper tools, there is a risk of creating mid-range parts-you may increase costs later due to unnecessary secondary operations or make the entire project fail.

How to Reduce Material Costs

The material cost depends on the weight of the required material and the unit price of the material. The weight of the material is the result of the volume of the part and the density of the material. However, the maximum wall thickness of the part can also be used.

The weight of the required material includes the material filling the mold channels. Thinner wall parts require a larger channel system to ensure that the entire part is filled quickly and evenly, thereby increasing the amount of material required.

However, due to the thinner walls, this additional material is usually less than the material saved due to partial volume reduction. Therefore, although the channels are larger, the use of thinner walls will reduce material costs.

How to Reduce Tooling Costs

1. First of all, the aluminum alloy die casting manufacturer should estimate the weight of the order. It is best to ensure that one mold completes the entire order and avoid multiple molds. This can save the cost of a mold opening.

2. The aluminum die casting mold should be designed to facilitate the demolding and subsequent processing of aluminum alloy die castings. That is to increase efficiency, which is much better than simply saving costs. The profit generated by efficiency is much higher than the cost of that mold.

3. The efficiency of the alloy die casting equipment can reduce the time of one die-casting while meeting the requirements of aluminum alloy die casting parts, which also represents this higher efficiency. Therefore, it is very important to choose a suitable die-casting machine and set a reasonable aluminum alloy pressure die casting process. 

All in all, an ideal aluminum alloy die-casting plant will be in line with efficiency and improve efficiency to reduce costs, rather than focusing on a small mold cost.

How to Reduce Production Costs

The die casting production cost is mainly calculated based on the hourly rate and cycle time. The cost per hour is directly proportional to the size of the die casting machine, so it is important to understand how the design of the part affects the choice of machine. Die casting machines are usually expressed by the tonnage of the clamping force they provide.

Therefore, larger parts will require larger clamping forces and require more expensive machines. Besides, certain materials that require high injection pressure may require higher tonnage machines. The size of the parts must also comply with other machine specifications.

In addition to the size of the aluminum high pressure die casting machine, the type of machine (hot room and cold room) also affect the cost. Using materials with high melting temperatures (such as aluminum) will require more expensive cold room machines.

The cycle time can be divided into injection time, cooling time, and reset time. By reducing these times, production costs can be reduced. The injection time can be reduced by reducing the maximum wall thickness of the part.

Using a hot chamber machine can save a lot of time, because, in the cold chamber machine casting process, a molten metal must be poured into the machine, which significantly increases the production time. The thermodynamic properties of the material also affect the cooling time.
