Causes and solutions of deformation of aluminum alloy die castings

Author: Date Published: May 16,2023

aluminum alloy Die Casting is widely used in various industries due to its excellent characteristics such as light weight, high strength, and good corrosion resistance. However, during the casting process, deformation problems may often occur, affecting the quality and performance of the final product. The following will discuss the causes and solutions of deformation of aluminum alloy Die Castings.


1. High temperature: When the temperature of the aluminum alloy die casting is too high, it is easy to cause deformation after cooling.

2. Uneven cooling: The uneven cooling rate of the aluminum alloy die casting can easily cause deformation, and the position where the cooling is slow is more vulnerable.

3. Inappropriate filling system design: When the filling system design is unreasonable, the flow direction will not be uniform during casting, causing uneven stress distribution and deformation.

4. Improper mold design: Improper mold design will cause uneven wall thickness or excessive pressure on the product, leading to deformation.

5. Material problems: If the melt quality of the aluminum alloy is not up to standard or the chemical composition is incorrect, it can lead to deformation after casting.


1. Optimize the casting process: Control the casting temperature and cooling rate strictly, maintain a stable temperature in the mold, and minimize the temperature difference between the mold and the aluminum alloy to avoid deformation.

2. Improve the mold design: The mold should be designed reasonably, with sufficient stiffness and strength, and avoiding excessive pressure on the product during casting.

3. Adjust the filling system design: The filling system should be designed according to the characteristics of the casting and the mold, and the flow direction should be uniform to avoid uneven stress distribution.

4. Improve the quality of the material: Strictly control the quality of the aluminum alloy, and use high-quality raw materials to ensure that the melt is of good quality and chemical composition to avoid deformation.

5. Post-processing: If there is deformation after casting, it can be corrected by means of mechanical processing, or heat treatment can be carried out to eliminate internal stress and restore the original shape of the product.
