This will result in a highly uniform c asting with very good surface finish and exceptional dimensional accuracy. Usual ly this can either eliminate or greatly reduce the machining required to finish the part. We can offer both the cold chamber process and the hot chamber process. In the c old chamber process the metal is ladled into the injection chamber for each shot . There is less exposure of the molten metal to the chamber walls and plunger. T his is very useful for aluminum and copper alloys that would easily alloy with i ron at elevated temperatures. The hot chamber process has the injection chamber which is connected to the die cavity permanently immersed in the molten metal. T he hot chamber process is used for metals of low melting point and high fluidity such as tin and zinc. Minimum wall thickness and draft angles for die castings are as follows: Material Min. Thickness Min. dra ft angle Aluminum 0.9 mm ( .035 in ) 0.5 degrees Zinc alloys 0.6 mm ( .025 in ) 0.25 degr ees Copper 1.25 mm ( .050 in ) 0.7 degree s The materials that Donrex offers are alloys of aluminum, copper, zinc and magnes ium. Zinc castings can be made with thinner wall thickness than aluminum due to high melt fluidity. We can produce parts from very small to about 15 kg (33 lbs ) for aluminum, 10 k g ( 22 lbs ) for magnesium, 25 kg ( 55 lbs ) for zinc and 5 kg ( 11 lbs ) for co pper.
