Minghe Special Casting describes the difference between casting and die casting in detail
The difference between casting and die casting:
Casting can be divided into gravity casting and pressure casting according to the pouring technology of molten metal.
Gravity casting refers to the technology in which molten metal is introduced into the mold under the effect of the earth’s gravity, also known as casting.
The generalized gravity casting includes sand casting, metal casting, investment casting, lost foam casting, mud casting, etc.; the narrow gravity casting specifically refers to metal casting.
Pressure casting refers to the technology in which molten metal is introduced into the mold under the action of other external forces (excluding gravity).
The broad sense of pressure casting includes pressure casting of die casting machine, vacuum casting, low pressure casting, centrifugal casting, etc.; narrow meaning of pressure casting refers specifically to metal die casting of die casting machine, referred to as die casting.
The precision casting factory has long been engaged in the gravity casting of sand and metal molds. These casting techniques are the most commonly used in non-ferrous metal casting and the lowest relative price.
Die casting is a metal mold pressure casting performed on a die casting machine, and it is currently the most efficient casting technology.
