The importance of aluminum castings in the foundry industry, mechanical partsAluminum castings are used in a wide range of applications, such as equipment parts, power accessories, petroleum machinery parts, train parts, auto parts, volutes, valve bodies, brackets, kitchen supplies, bicycle parts, textile machinery parts, etc. The application of aluminum castings can be seen everywhere. .
Aluminum castings refer to aluminum alloy workpieces obtained by casting various types of aluminum alloys.
Usually, sand casting or metal casting is used to pour the aluminum alloy heated into a liquid into the cavity, so that the aluminum alloy parts of various shapes and sizes are obtained, and the aluminum alloy parts we will obtain are simply referred to as aluminum castings.
Aluminum castings have unparalleled advantages in castings of many other metal materials. The biggest part of aluminum castings is light weight, corrosion resistance and beautiful appearance. Aluminum castings are greatly favored by users from all walks of life, especially in automobiles. Since the lightweight, aluminum castings have been widely used in the automotive industry.
The advantages of aluminum castings are numerous. It has become the development direction of the foundry industry. With the development and progress of aluminum alloy casting technology, it will create more brilliant achievements.
Since the density of aluminum castings is much smaller than that of cast iron and steel castings, and the strength is high, it is preferred to use lightweight aluminum castings to reduce the weight of equipment and structures under the premise of bearing the same load strength.
Matters needing attention in the processing of aluminum forgings
Aluminum forgings are articles in which the metal is subjected to pressure, plastic deformation to shape the desired shape or suitable contraction force. This type of pneumatic model is achieved by using a hammer or pressure. The casting process builds a sophisticated particle structure and improves the physical properties of the metal. In the fantasy use of parts, a correct imagination enables the particles to flow at the target of the main pressure.
Aluminum forgings require that each piece be divergent without any porosity, excess space, inclusions or other defects. The components consumed by this type of method have a high ratio of strength to weight. These components are commonly used in aircraft structures.
