The difference between multi-slide die casting and conventional hot-chamber die casting is the construction and operation of the tooling and the die casting machine required to operate it. Conventional hot-chamber die casting uses a two-part tool, making it difficult and expensive to create parts with complex geometries. Whereas multi-slide tooling is designed to use four perpendicular slides in the tool, enabling complex and accurate castings to be produced. This technology has given our customers the design freedom to create more precise and complex parts.
The multi-slide tool is made up of the die block, sliders, crosshead, and cover plate. Each die block has either a cavity and/or cores on its face, which together form the complete cavity and runner profile into which the molten metal is injected.
Net Shaped, Custom Die Cast Parts
SUZUBIN is able to create custom precision components with tolerances of +/-0.02mm. With our multi-slide process, we can create net shape parts typically without secondary operations—including internal and external threads. The end result is a high-speed, temperature-controlled process that produces thin-walled components so complex in geometry that they would need to be manufactured from two or more pieces if other methods of die casting were used. If you require small complex components, multi-slide die casting may be your best solution. Contact our engineering team to get started on your project.
