Squeeze casting and Semi-solid molding

High Integrity Die Casting Methods

There are several variations on the basic process that can be used to produce castings for specific applications. These include:
Squeeze casting - A method by which molten alloy is cast without turbulence and gas entrapment at high pressure to yield high quality, dense, heat treatable components.
Semi-solid molding - A procedure where semi-solid metal billets are cast to provide dense, heat treatable castings with low porosity.
