Abstract:
Fast, accurate delivery of metal to the shot well is critical to the success of any cold chamber die casting operation. For some metals this is a simple problem to solve. Magnesium, however, requires more innovative thinking. Simplicity of design is essential for reliable operation in the environment of a magnesium die casting facility. Complex control is required to provide speed and accuracy of shot delivery. Blending these two ingredients to produce a viable system produces a truly innovative shot delivery system for magnesium. Construction details of a newly developed stand alone system for the auto ladling of magnesium will be presented. Data with regard to speed and accuracy will also be presented.
