Originally designed to be a short course, this PowerPoint presentation covers melt preparation and transfer, hot and cold chamber die casting technologies and thixomolding. Melting furnaces and crucibles are described. Guidelines for charging materials and preventing melt burning/oxidation are included. Extensive coverage is given to equipment, processing parameters and applications of the various casting technologies.
