  In this work, considering the typical application of the aluminum alloys as engine pistons, FGMs are realized by sequential gravity casting with the piston alloy EN AB and the alloy . Apparently, die casting aluminum has proved to be environmentally and sustainable. This is from the fact that about 95% of the metal can be recycled. This reduces the amount of waste in the environment. In fact, it is a non-ferrous metal that is commonly die cast in the world today. Again, die casting aluminum is generally cost effective. Aluminum (Al) die casting alloys have a specific gravity of approximately g/cc, placing them among the lightweight structural metals. The majority of die cast- ings produced worldwide are made from aluminum alloys. Six major elements constitute the die cast aluminum alloy system: silicon, copper, magnesium, iron, manganese, and Size: KB. available aluminum die casting alloys, but the entire group is superior to iron, steel and titanium. The rapid solidi˜cation rate associated with the die casting process makes die casting alloys somewhat superior to wrought and gravity cast alloys of similar chemical composition. Alloy A has better than average machining characteristics.

Aluminum alloy castings properties, processes and applications/J. Gilbert Kaufman, Elwin L. Rooy. p. cm. Includes bibliographical references and index. ISBN 1. Aluminum alloys—Mechanical properties. 2. Aluminum castings. I. Rooy, Elwin L. II. title. TAA6K33 '86—dc22 ISBN: SAN: The importance of aluminium and its alloys as engineering materials is reflected by the fact that out of over engineering materials available in the market today more than wrought. It begins with a review of temper designations and product forms and the underlying physical metallurgy of aluminum alloys. It then examines manufacturing practices and techniques, focusing in critical areas such as casting, metalworking, heat treating, machining and finishing, surface treatment, and joining. Today, aluminum alloy castings are produced in hundreds of compositions by all commercial casting processes, including green sand, dry sand, composite mold, plaster mold, investment casting, permanent mold, counter-gravity tow-pressure casting, and pressure die casting. Alloys can also be divided into two groups: those most suitable for gravity.

The element aluminum (Al) has a specific gravity of , placing it among the light-weight structural metals. It is used as a base for die casting alloys with three primary constituents: silicon, copper and magnesium. Aluminum alloys used in our manufacturing gravity die. The choice of alloy to be used during melting of aluminum casting in gravity shell depends on the intended use of the pieces produced. From alloys of aluminum and silicon, zinc alloys up to pure aluminum alloys, we offer a wide range of possibilities to find the best alloy for your needs. We cast aluminum alloys both as sand castings and gravity die-castings. The main alloys being LM4, LM6, LM9 and LM If necessary any other alloy can, and would be used to meet individual requirements. Aluminum LM4. This alloy conforms to BS Castings may be in the as cast (M) or fully heat treated (TF) conditions. Among the innovative and conventional foundry processes for Aluminium alloys, low pressure die casting is characterised by several advantages, including high yield, excellent control of operative parameters, good metallurgical and technological quality. This process is often (and incorrectly) associated only to the production of automotive wheels, while it is improving its potential both.
