Dies and Die Setting
Die Casting dies lie at the heart of the process. They are expensive, hard working devices which must be accurate, properly treated, and appreciated for their value and importance.
These subjects enable production staff, and others, to gain a better understanding of how they work and the skill and effort that is required to maintain and repair them.
High Pressure Die Casting Dies
Describes all the important elements of a pressure Die Casting die and what they do, the ways they can fail or be damaged and the effects and the issues and costs in maintaining and repairing dies.
Gravity and Low Pressure Die Casting Dies
Describes all the important elements of gravity and Low Pressure Die Casting dies and what they do, the ways they can fail or be damaged and the effects and the issues and costs in maintaining and repairing dies.
Die Setting Principles
This subject describes all the important principles to be followed in setting a die in a high or low pressure Die Casting machine including lifting, attachment, testing and the associated safety precautions to be taken. The principles are not machine-specific, and this course can be done without access to a machine.
Die Setting Practice
In this subject, the principles of Die Setting learned in the course above are put into practice on an actual machine. Therefore, this course must be conducted in a Die Casting plant or a training facility, under the guidance of a qualified person.
