Die Casting: 70% Increase in Parts Produced

2020-03-18T03:37:49-04:00

The Quaker Houghton team worked closely with the customer to better understand their production process and analyze the structure of the casting. Quaker Houghton recommended DIE SLICK® AD 32 as a solution. This product was chosen because it does not contain wax, and has good film-forming performance at high tempera¬tures.

Die Casting : 20% Cost Reduction and Improved Cast Transmission Case Quality

2020-03-16T17:06:51-04:00

Quaker Houghton met with management at one of the supplier’s major automotive casting facilities, and secured a production trial. The objectives were to reduce down¬time from polishing and overall production cost. Initially, the Quaker Houghton team worked closely with the process control department to better understand their casting production utilizing thermal imagery on die sur¬faces. Based on laboratory analysis and thermal imagery results the soldering and build up problems were identified and Quaker Houghton recommended DIE SLICK® 2015, a subset of the DIE SLICK® 2050 A series.

Die Casting : Reduced Consumption Through Smart Polymer Technology

2020-03-18T05:09:09-04:00

Quaker Houghton analyzed the customer’s challenges to determine the ideal casting conditions and introduced DIE SLICK®4510SYN. During the trial, the customer was very pleased with the casting quality and is now expanding its use at a second plant.

Die Casting : Solving Powder Paint Adhesion Issues On Aluminum Castings

2020-03-16T17:26:31-04:00

Quaker Houghton collaborated with not only the customer, but with the paint supplier, paint vendor, and die manufacturer to get to the root cause. An on-site audit of the existing die caster, powder painting process and materials was conducted. Sample castings were sent to an alternative powder paint source to test for similar results but the alternative powder painted parts had the same out-gassing results as the original parts.

DIE SLICK® 4520 Series

2020-03-17T04:40:29-04:00

The formulations in this series incorporates Smart Polymer technology and high molecular weight alkane cross-linking agents. Uneven protection caused by temperature variation on a die surface is a long-standing challenge in the die casting industry. Temperature variation is caused by the wide-range of die size, design, complexity, parts produced, and heat profile of each system.

Coping With Temperature Variation On The Surface Of Dies – Smart Polymer Chemistry

2020-03-18T08:00:44-04:00

High pressure die casting is a process of forcing molten alloy at high pressure into a die. Common alloys are alumi¬num, zinc and magnesium. The dies can be very complex and the variation of parts produced is extensive. Due to the wide variation in die design, size and complexity, the flow of alloy through the die and the thermodynamic profile of each system is unique. This leads to tempera¬ture variation, hot areas and cold areas on the die sur¬face. Two of the major roles of a die casting lubricant are, protect the die from the molten alloy and provide release of the casting. Therefore the need for a lubricant to be effective in a broad temperature range is preferred.
