Die casting is a metal casting process that is defined by forging molten metal under high pressure into a mould with the help of a shot sleeve. The mould consists of two hardened tool steel dies which have been machined into a shape. To bring the liquid metal (aluminium, magnesium) into the mould you need a plunger tip which pushes the liquid metal inside the sleeve into the mould. This plunger tip is often made from high performance copper alloys.
Plunger tips and a die casting shot sleeve
Copper plunger tips are used in the heart of a die cast machine and are a very important part. Plunger tips are forcing liquid aluminium or magnesium into the mould. With a high-quality copper alloy you will have the best life-time results. For standard and optimized steel shot sleeves for die casting you can send us your demands. You need to provide us with your casting data, such as casting, weight, cycle time, filling ratio and type of lubrication. With this we are able to calculate and find the die casting shot sleeve design that you require.
