Die Casting is a process in which molten metal is introduced into a cavity and a groove is formed. The groove is called an engaging groove, and it is typically formed as an undercut groove. In the next step, the molten metal is introduced into an insert die casting molding step, and the cover is molded.
For the battery cover, the aluminum alloy is used. The process can be either high-pressure or low-pressure. It can also be made with a cooling function integrated into the design. The latter may be a trend in the future. Various die casting aluminum alloys are available for battery trays. These products can be used in a variety of applications, including electric vehicle applications. A battery cover made of these alloys is an integral part of the battery housing.
The emergence of electric cars has increased the demand for lightweight components. In order to increase the performance of electric vehicles, automakers must reduce their costs and emissions. Aluminum is considered an excellent lightweight material because its specific gravity is 2.7. Its lighter weight can result in a lower electricity consumption and lower CO2 emissions.
Another important application for die-casting is the military. The military needs durable metal parts for weapons and heavy-duty vehicles, but it also needs lighter parts to increase the speed of fighter planes. The metal die casting process has helped in ensuring a steady supply of metal parts for the military. Though the defense industry relies primarily on iron parts, die casting with non-ferrous alloys can also achieve the same effects. Zinc die-casting products are becoming increasingly popular in building construction due to their exceptional strength.
