Zinc Die Casting

锌压铸:精度高,性能优异.

锌是用途最广泛的压铸金属之一. It provides higher precision with lower tooling costs when compared to other die cast metals like aluminum or magnesium. Zinc die casting also offers a broad range of excellent physical and mechanical properties, finishing characteristics, and is the easiest to cast.

Advantages of Using Zinc

锌最显著的优点之一是它能降低加工成本. Die cast tooling is typically a significant cost factor, so it’s important to save where you can. 因为锌的熔点很低, dies can last up to 10 times longer than those used in aluminum die casting and about five times longer than dies used for magnesium. That means fewer repairs, less downtime, and more parts produced over the life of the tool. 小型锌件可采用高速四滑块微型锌压铸工艺, which allows for significantly lower upfront tooling costs when compared to aluminum or magnesium.

锌压铸的优点包括:

  • Longer tool life
  • 更低的模具成本(特别是如果它可以使用微型锌压铸工艺)
  • The ability to cast near net-shaped complex geometries with thinner walls and less draft angle than castings produced with other metals reduces the need for machine features.
  • 良好的机械和物理性能平衡, 与铝或镁相比,具有更高的屈服强度和延伸率.
  • 与铝相比,具有良好的减振能力
  • 多种整理选择
  • Faster production time

The many advantages of zinc allow it to be used in a wide range of industries and applications.

The Zinc Die Casting Process

锌是用快速循环铸造的 热室压铸工艺, which utilizes a component called a gooseneck that is submerged in a furnace filled with molten metal. 金属自动通过鹅颈上的一个孔进入枪膛. A vertical plunger then seals the hole and drives the metal into the back of the die with high pressure. 零件迅速凝固(几秒钟内),零件从工具中弹出.

Zinc Alloys Available at CWM

CWM铸造了两种不同的锌合金:Zamak No. 3 and ZA-8. Both offer the ability to cast with intricate detail and close dimensional tolerances at high production rates.  

扎马克3是压铸中最常用的锌合金, 主要是因为它具有优良的浇注性和优良的整理特性. Zamak #3的延伸性能允许它卷曲或压弯到其他组件.

ZA-8 is often the choice when additional strength and greater creep resistance are required.

具有各种规格的机器,锁紧力可达500吨, CWM可以生产从小型到超过20英寸长的锌件.
