History of Die Casting
History of Diecasting
Die casting was developed by Sturges in 1849, Barr in 1852, Pelize in 1856, Dusenbury in 1877, etc. people have patented manual machines. This is what Ottmar Mergenthaler called "Linotype" and provides the production of newspaper lines by automatically arranging metal forms. With this machine, it took its place on the stage of history as the first pressure casting machine, and the first industrial application started with the pressing of lead and tin alloys into engine bearings. It soon began to be applied to castings of alloys with good mechanical properties. After success was achieved with zinc alloys, which have slightly higher temperatures than tin-lead alloys, in 1915 a company produced commercial aluminum alloy parts for the first time. In the First World War, gas masks, machine guns, binoculars, etc. were used with this technique. system parts were made by pressure casting. Developed with magnesium and brass alloy castings. Aluminum and magnesium alloys, which melt at approximately 650 0C, were followed by copper-zinc alloys, which we know as "Brass", which melt at approximately 870 0C.
Today, pressure casting is one of the most important methods of metalworking art. In recent years, pressure casting machines have adapted to the conditions of the day by producing safety, security and smart machines. PLC (Programmable Logic Control), which is not affected by voltage fluctuations in these machines, has become a perfect computer equipped that can transform human thought into industrial application. Three-stage plate clamping level, network connection possibility, possibility to use IT technologies such as internet, e-mail, SMS, compatibility with automation, print counter, machine working time display, program memory of 16,000 steps, digital display panel, error warning system, remote monitoring. Die casting machines, which can be used manually or fully automatically (300-400-600 tons), are environmentally friendly, easy to use, and have ISO 9000 and CE quality certificates.
