The Effect of Squeeze Pin Dimension and Operational Parameters on Material Homogenity of Aluminium High Pressure Die Cast Parts


The present paper is an experimental study on the squeeze pin effect on the high pressure die cast aluminium parts, as a way of improvement of material homogenity on various and big wall thickness castings. Squeeze is used in high pressure die casting technology for optimizing homogenity of big wall thicknesses of die cast parts working as structural, mechanical and hydraulic components, made of different aluminium alloys such AlSi alloys. The objective of this research is to highlight the primary and secondary effects of squeezing on the structural homogenity of high pressure die cast aluminium parts, as well as the dependence of the effects on the squeeze pin dimensions and the operating parameters.
