Advantages of A380 Aluminum Alloy
Why do we exclusively die cast with A380 aluminum alloy at American Precision Die Casting? For many reasons, including:
- It’s availability
- The value it offers our customers
- A380’s ability to resist hot cracking and corrosion
- Strength at elevated temperatures and ability to perform well at high temperatures during typical use
- Anti-soldering properties during the die casting process
- Machining, polishing, and finishing ease
- More versatility in finishing options
- Tensile strength
- It’s relatively lightweight
- Our experience and expertise
Aluminum is the third most abundant element on Earth. The metal is also easily recycleable. It’s availability drives the prices of aluminum down, making it advantageous to creating products at competitive rates.
Die casting with aluminum alloy 380 in particular produces high-quality, cost-effective parts and products that are durable. The die cast part or product trims in our presses well without splintering, cracking, or any other potential problems that can be found with other metals. We can apply a variety of finishing services to A380 aluminum as well to meet your specific needs and specifications for use. Additionally, A380’s anti-soldering properties help to extend the life of tools and dies, and the metal’s overall composition reduces machine breakage and downtime.
A380 is ideal in many ways for most applications. Contact us today to learn the benefits of aluminum die casting with A380 alloy for your parts and products.
Die Casting Aluminum
Pure aluminum is rather weak and malleable on its own. But mixed with other metals, such as silicon, iron, copper, magnesium, manganese, or zinc strengthens the aluminum and brings other benefits to the metal. Adding silicon and magnesium to aluminum, for example, results in an alloy that is extremely resistant to corrosion.
There are are 530 different alloy compositions with more compositions being created and registered every year. The versatility that aluminum alloys offer is undeniable, and the advantages of A380 make it one of the most widely used alloy for manufacturing and die casting.
Did you know aluminum alloy 380 beats out all other aluminum alloys with its durability under high heat? It has a high resistance to stress in high-temperature operating conditions, compared to all other alloys.
Die casting with aluminum is ideal for great number of applications in industries such as consumer products, industrial products, electric motors, and more.
