Overview of mold material selection what factors need to be considered

The steel used for die casting molds has extremely strict requirements on steel. The wear resistance, fatigue resistance, strength, hardness, ease of processing, and toughness of die steel are all important.

  1. Strength of die steel

Die casting molds need to withstand extreme conditions such as high temperature, high pressure, rapid cooling, wear resistance, etc. Under these conditions, to keep the mold working normally for a long time, it needs good mold steel strength.


  1. Fatigue resistance

Die-casting molds often operate under high-temperature, high-pressure and high-load environments, and mold steel with good fatigue resistance can ensure the normal operation of the mold for a long time.

  1. Mold hardness

The hardness of the mold steel often determines the wear resistance of the mold. Under the impact of high temperature and high-pressure metal liquid, the mold may be scrapped under the most serious corrosion for a long time.

  1. Easy to process

This characteristic often seems to be contrary to the characteristics such as hardness and strength, but the mold steel must be processed into a mold to be produced. If the processing is difficult, it will naturally fail to meet the production requirements.

Therefore, the choice of mold steel should be aligned with production, not only to facilitate production, but also to maintain quality and life.www.diecastingconnector.com
