Aluminum Die Casting CNC Machining

Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) machine that is machining an aluminum die casting. Video shows automated tool changing and automatic handling of the casting. The process has a short cycle time and is repeatable since the machine is programmed for the specific part. Little labor is needed to machine the die cast part. The die cast part is made with a high pressure die cast process. Get more information on Aluminum Die Casting and CNC Machines or contact us at 800-394-3006.

Aluminum Die Casting 650 Ton Automated Cell

Aluminum die casting automated robotic cell using a kawasaki robot and auto ladle to produce a die cast part. This video shows the die cast process including pouring molten aluminum and automatic extraction of the die casting. Get more information on Aluminum Die Casting or contact us at 800-394-3006.

Die Casting Robot Cell with Vacuum

Aluminum Die Casting Cell Automated with Robotic Extraction and Ladling. The die cast machine utilizes a vacuum process with the die and evacuates the mold before the molten metal is injected into the die cavity. This offers a denser casting with less porosity than conventional die casting. Get more information on Aluminum Die Casting or contact us at 800-394-3006.

Machining a Gas Meter Body

This video shows how a main body for a gas meter is machined in a dedicated machine center. The machine, which is specialized for this part, drills and taps 24 holes in the casting in 20 seconds to ensure the gas meter is ready for commercial use. Check out our Machining page to learn more about our processes for machining production to high production quantities and excellent quality standards.

Gas Meter Pressure Testing

Pressure tests ensure that machine castings are solid and provide a way for us to make sure gas does not leak through the walls. This video shows the pressure test on a main body casting for a gas meter. Complete our contact form or call us today at 800-394-3006 to learn more and receive a free quote for your project.

Commercial Gas Meter

This video depicts the automated process for die casting a commercial gas meter. This gas meter was made with an 850 ton Prince Die Casting Machine and a Kawasaki Robot, which sprays the mold and extracts the die casting.

8 Inch Leak Test

This leak test helps to ensure that the meter is ready for commercial use. This is a standard pressure test performed on an 8 inch cover for a gas meter which allows us to see if gas is leaking through the walls. Take a look at our Assembly and Testing page, or call us today at 800-394-3006 to learn more about our testing process.

About Aluminum Alloys

The element aluminum (Al) has a specific gravity of 2.7, placing it among the light-weight structural metals. It is used as a base for die casting alloys with three primary constituents: silicon, copper and magnesium. Eight available aluminum die casting alloys give the designer the widest choice among the four primary alloy groups, and they account for the majority of die castings in terms of tons of components produced.
