Effective Design & Maintenance of PDC Dies - IMTMA/MF009

Programme Background

High pressure die casting is often the process of choice because of its cost effectiveness and superior quality. The process produces components that have tight dimensional tolerance, good and consistent surface finish and near net shape. It enables manufacturers to make cost-effective small volume runs and is also cost competitive for large production runs Aluminium die cast components have the property of being very light weight with significant mechanical properties and is used extensively in the automotive industry.

Focus Areas
  • Critical Study of the component design from the tooling and process perspective
  • Design Process of the PDC Dies
  • Solutions to common challenges faced in designing the dies
  • Selection of the right die steels and their heat treatment
  • Tips on better Assembly and tryout methodology
  • Effective maintenance of the dies
  • Impact of use of coatings on the life of the die
