What is zinc die casting?

Zinc die-casting components are pressure-cast parts manufactured using a process that involves the use of a pressure die-casting machine equipped with a preloaded die-casting mold. In this process, heated liquid zinc or zinc alloy is poured into the casting machine’s inlet, and then, under high pressure applied by the machine’s piston, the zinc alloy is forced into the mold, taking on the shape and dimensions defined by the mold. These components produced through this method are commonly referred to as zinc alloy die-casting parts.

While cold-chamber die-casting machines can also be used for zinc alloy die-casting, the most frequently utilized method is the hot-chamber die-casting machine. This preference is due to the high production efficiency it offers, which helps reduce the cost of die-cast components. Additionally, it ensures excellent flow and filling properties of the molten zinc alloy. Consequently, zinc alloy die-casting has become a prevalent manufacturing method for a wide range of industrial components and products, meeting the diverse needs of various industries.

Zinc alloy is widely used in die casting industry, zinc metal material with several advantages that make it widely used in various fields:

  1. Low Melting Point and Excellent Flowability: Zinc alloys have a low melting point, making them easy to heat and cast. This excellent flowability makes them suitable for manufacturing complex-shaped parts.
  2. High Density and Strength: Zinc alloys have relatively high density and strength, making them suitable for applications requiring wear resistance and mechanical strength.
  3. Smooth Surface Finish: Zinc alloy die-casting parts typically have smooth surfaces and do not require additional surface treatments, reducing post-processing costs.
  4. Thermal Stability: Zinc alloys exhibit good mechanical properties at room temperature, making them suitable for various environments.
  5. Multiple Alloy Options: There are various zinc alloys to choose from to meet different application requirements. Common ones include the ZAMAK series and ZA series alloys, such as ZAMAK 2, ZAMAK 3, ZAMAK 5, ZA-8, and more.
  6. Wide Range of Applications: Zinc alloy die-casting parts find extensive use in industries such as instrumentation, automotive part casings, bathroom handles, and more, catering to the needs of diverse sectors.

It’s important to note that the performance of zinc alloys may deteriorate in high-temperature and low-temperature environments, so the working temperature range of zinc die casting parts should be considered when selecting zinc alloy materials. Additionally, zinc die casting products have relatively poor corrosion resistance, and excessive impurities in the alloy may lead to aging and deformation of castings. Furthermore, zinc alloy die-casting parts may exhibit aging effects, with a potential decrease in strength after prolonged use. Therefore, these factors should be carefully considered for specific applications.

Advantages of Zinc Die Casting Process

High Production Efficiency icon
High Production Efficiency

Zinc alloy products manufactured using die-casting molds typically yield 1-40 cavities per mold. Due to it’s lower specific heat capacity and rapid cooling rate, zinc alloy die-casting efficiency for the same product is 1.5 times that of aluminum alloy die-casting. This efficiency contributes to faster production and reduced manufacturing costs.

Minimal Draft Angles icon
Minimal Draft Angles

Zinc alloy’s low affinity with iron, coupled with its excellent thermal contraction characteristics, typically results in mold draft angles of 1-3 degrees when demolding. When necessary, it is even possible to achieve zero draft angles, allowing for precise and intricate product designs.

High Density and Strength icon
High Density and Strength

Zinc alloy has a density three times that of aluminum alloy, resulting in high hardness and a strong metallic feel. This characteristic makes it suitable for various surface treatments, making it a preferred choice for manufacturing many electronic products. It offers an excellent strength-to-weight ratio, contributing to lightweight yet robust product designs.

Easy to Form icon
Easy to Form

Zinc alloy’s excellent flowability allows for the production of thinner and more intricate products compared to aluminum alloy die-castings. Wall thicknesses ranging from 2-4mm are achievable, and when necessary, even thinner walls as fine as 0.6mm to 1mm can be produced. This versatility in shaping makes zinc alloy an ideal choice for complex and detailed product designs.

Zinc Die Casting Mould Design & Manufacturing

The metallic properties of zinc alloys can differ from aluminum alloys, zinc alloy die-casting generally employs hot chamber die-casting machines. Therefore, specialized zinc alloy die-casting mold designers are required for mold design. The design of the sprue, runners, vents, and slag traps is meticulously crafted to ensure the final die-casting exhibits optimal performance and product quality.

Zinc alloy die-cast products usually require post-processing such as polishing and electroplating, placing high demands on the surface quality of the die-cast parts. It is crucial to ensure the complete filling of the zinc alloy die-casting components without any porosity.

Yontone company has a professional mold design team with over twenty years of experience, providing custom mold designs tailored to specific project requirements, ensuring the best production efficiency and product quality. This is highly important in the zinc alloy die-casting process.
