3 Gravity die casting process Mazak, an alloy of Zinc and aluminium, is first melted in a crucible furnace.Molten metal is then poured by ladle in to an open steel mould where it is allowed to cool and solidify.
4 Gravity die casting process The mould is then turned upside down and tapped with a hammer to release the finished casting.Gravity die casting requires minimal finishing and waste as minimal because excess metal can be melted down and used again.
5 Things that you may recognise Things that are made from gravity die casting are:Toaster -Lawnmowers -Car wheel rims -
6 Identifying the process When something has been created by gravity pressure die casting there would be:Section hair linesejector pin markssprue and runner marks
