By J. Gilbert Kaufman, Elwin L. Rooy

Aluminum Alloy Castings offers estate and function facts for all sorts of aluminum alloy castings and stories and describes the criteria that give a contribution to and impact these homes, together with composition, microstructure, casting strategy, warmth therapy, and caliber insurance. the quantity good points wide collections of estate and function facts, together with formerly unpublished getting older reaction curves, development curves, and fatigue curves. those info are offered in constant codecs to permit effortless comparisons between diverse alloys and tempers. The authors have endeavored to deal with the entire casting technique applied sciences to be had for aluminum alloys. Engineering details is incorporated for expendable mould, everlasting mould, and strain die casting procedures and their adaptations. the point of interest of the method insurance is to check the consequences of method choice and strategy variables on casting homes and function. consultant examples of aluminum castings purposes are supplied. This publication may be of vital price to fabrics and layout engineers serious about the evaluate, choice and specification of aluminum casting functions and to casting manufacturers as a method of higher realizing, quantifying, bettering, and selling the functionality features of aluminum castings.

Example text

First, the low-pressure casting process achieved commercial importance in the United States in the 1950s. A number of challenges that were unaddressed by commercial low-pressure systems were successfully met. A cam-controlled back-pressure method based on gross casting weight was used to retain residual metal levels at the top of the feed tube. This feature prevented the inclusion spawning characteristic of normal low-pressure cycles. In-gate filtration and screening methods were also devised. The range of part designs and alloys that were cast would be considered unusual today when the low-pressure process has become principally known for automotive wheel production.

The range of part designs and alloys that were cast would be considered unusual today when the low-pressure process has become principally known for automotive wheel production. Instead, the low-pressure method was considered a means of nonturbulent mold filling with a number of additional advantages that included reduced gross/net weight and lower pouring temperature.

Casting results for rapidly solidified unmodified castings proved superior to those of chemically modified, lesssound castings produced under the same conditions. At one time, essentially uncontrolled titanium additions were routinely made for grain refinement. Extensive studies of the ratios of titanium and boron and their intermetallic forms most effective for grain refining resulted in rapid advances in foundry practice. Later studies would provide new insights that continuously redefined the advanced standards and procedures for grain structure control in premium engineered casting production.
