In order to achieve a high level of esthetical quality, the die has to be maintained at very high temperatures: high temperature in the die reduces alloy cooling during the filling phase, reducing flow marks. However, high temperatures implies longer cooling time: as a consequence, the cycle time expands because of the prolonged solidifying phase of the part. Therefore, it is necessary to establish an operating temperature range that allows a high quality level while keeping the cycle time as low as possible, to increase productivity.
As the die casting conditions like pressure, temperature, and parts size become increasingly severe, lubricants need to be used to enhance the process. However, the lubricants used should not adversely affect the product or its characteristics. Die casters use many techniques to improve their operational efficiency and to decrease production costs. A high-pressure die casting machine has a number of moving parts that need proper lubrication.
