Parts in the Die Casting Industry:

  • Die Casting Dies (Hot- and Cold-Chamber Die Casting)
  • Cores
  • Sprue parts
  • Nozzle
  • Plunger shot sleeve
  • Ejector Pins
  • Holder blocks
  • Bushings and guide pillars

Requirements for the parts:

  • For high Hardness
  • For high Wear resistance
  • For high Fatigue strength
  • For Thermal fatigue resistance
  • For Reduction of soldering
  • For Plastic deformation resistance

Ion Nitriding Solutions:

  • Significantly increasing the surface hardness, wear (abrasive and adhesive) resistance and fatigue life of the tools, improving their lifespan and performance.
  • Improving the thermal fatigue resistance of the tools.
  • Reducing the friction coefficient needed both for the tools and for the bushings and guide pillars.
  • Lowering the wettability and adhesion.
  • Reducing the soldering of the cast material to the tools.
  • Increasing the corrosion resistance which is needed if the die sets are working in environments with moisture or corrosive substances.

Improving these parameters will save from downtime and maintenance costs.

Steel Grades Used:

  • Hardness and depth values are recommended for the industry and exact values will depend on the nitriding process parameters.
  • This is not a full list of used steel grades
  • Example of H13 tool steel after Ion Nitriding - surface hardness and diffusion depth
