How Dies Are Made

 

Dies for aluminum casting are made by creating a model of the part to be manufactured and then enveloping it with aluminum and allowing it to cool. When the aluminum is removed, it contains the cavity where the product will be formed. Dies can be made via squeeze casting, where a molten metal alloy is created at a very high pressure to make dense, high-quality, heat-treatable components. Semi-solid molding uses semi-solid billets to make a die that is heat treatable and has a low porosity. The surface of the pieces made will it have a smooth, clean-looking appearance.
