3. Work characteristics

(1) Toggle mechanism

A. Strengthening effect

Through the toggle link system, the thrust of the mold clamping hydraulic cylinder can be amplified by 16 to 26 times to reduce fuel consumption, reduce the diameter of the mold clamping hydraulic cylinder, reduce the power of the pump, and achieve the same power.

B. Variable speed closing and opening movement can be realized

In the process of ejecting the mold, the moving speed of the movable mold seat plate rises from zero to the maximum quickly, and then gradually slows down, extending with the elbow until it terminates, and the clamping speed becomes zero and enters the self-locking state.

C. When the clamping is terminated, the thrust can be removed

When the clamping is tight and the toggle lever is stretched in a straight line, it will lock itself. At this time, the thrust of the clamping hydraulic cylinder can be removed. The clamping system is still in a tight state.

(2) Ejector mechanism

After the machine opens the mold, the ejection movement of the push rod and the ejector pin is realized by the relative movement of the piston rod of the ejection hydraulic cylinder. The ejection force, ejection speed and ejection time can be adjusted through the hydraulic system. Double hydraulic cylinders can be used to make the push rod evenly stressed, move smoothly, and make the ejection pin hole distribution more reasonable.

(3) Mold adjustment mechanism

The gear assembly is driven by the mold adjusting motor, so that the tail plate of the mold clamping column and the movable mold seat plate move axially along the tie rod, so as to expand or reduce the distance between the movable mold seat plates. The parameters are shown in the manual.

(4) Lubrication system

In order to reduce sports wear, proper lubricating oil must be maintained on the sports surface. It also realizes timing and quantitative lubrication. At the same time, a lubrication pump is selected to realize automatic lubrication.

2. Injection mechanism:


Hydraulic pressure of metal into the mold cavity for filling.


injection hydraulic cylinder assembly, feed barrel, hammer head assembly, fast injection accumulator assembly, pressurized accumulator assembly.

working principle:

①The first stage slow injection movement

When the injection starts, the system hydraulic oil enters the C2 cavity through the oil circuit integrated plate, and then enters the C1 cavity through the A3 channel, thereby pushing the injection piston 2 to move to the left, realizing slow injection.

②The second stage of rapid injection movement

When the injection punch exceeds the barrel pouring port, the accumulator 3 control valve opens, and the hydraulic oil quickly enters the C1 cavity through the A1 and A3 ports. The hydraulic oil volume of the C1 cavity increases rapidly, and the injection speed increases.

Briefly describe the structure, function and principle of the die casting machine

③The third stage pressurization exercise

The molten metal is filled into the cavity. When it is about to terminate, the alloy liquid begins to solidify. At this time, the forward resistance of the punch increases. Under the control of the computer program, the accumulator 4 is used to control the valve to open, and it quickly enters the C3 cavity through A2, thereby promoting the increase. The pressing piston 5 and the piston rod 6 move quickly to the left. When the inner and outer conical surfaces of the piston rod 6 and the floating piston 7 are joined, A3 is cut off, so that C1 forms a closed cavity. The push of the booster piston, the piston rod, the floating piston and the pressure of the C1 and C2 chambers together make the piston 2 obtain a booster effect. .

④Slow speed, fast speed and supercharging speed can be adjusted by the control oil valve of the oil circuit board.

Provide power to the machine and ensure that the machine works at the predetermined pressure, speed, temperature and time.

Process flow

Principle: Use correct operation methods and select reasonable process parameters to obtain excellent products.

1. Set the equipment parameters. Generally, if you are not familiar with the die casting process, adjust the mold opening time slightly to prevent splashing and hurting people due to the incomplete solidification of the workpiece when the mold is opened;

2. Select the furnace, set and heat the magnesium liquid to a suitable temperature, so that the furnace is on standby;

3. Preheat the mold and pressure chamber to a suitable temperature;

4. Pouring and injection

1) Clean alloy liquid, that is, the oxide layer on the surface cannot be injected into the pressure chamber together;

2) When injecting, select the appropriate speed and time to ensure that the end of the injection is connected to the beginning of the injection;

3) The pouring temperature should be based on the structure and wall thickness of the casting. Generally, the alloy liquid temperature should be 650~690℃, the upper temperature limit should be selected for thin-walled parts, and the lower temperature limit should be selected for thick-walled parts. On the whole, under the principle of not affecting the quality of castings, the pouring temperature is generally low;

4) When the molten metal completely enters the pressure chamber, injection should be carried out immediately, otherwise the temperature of the molten metal in the pressure chamber will drop sharply, which will affect the filling performance;

5) Be sure to pay attention to safety when injecting, the operator should close the door and let the irrelevant personnel go away;

6) The amount of molten metal spoon should be stable. Generally, the thickness of the reserved material cake should be controlled at 15~20mm. It is not only to control the final pressure transmission, but also to control the filling flow state of the alloy liquid;

7) At the beginning of production, it is best to choose slow injection to make the mold fully and evenly preheated to avoid the phenomenon of sticking mold and flying materials at the beginning of production;

5. Condensation and mold opening

The alloy liquid starts to solidify soon after being filled into the cavity, but the casting must have sufficient strength when the mold is opened to prevent damage. The mold opening time should be appropriately set according to the size, shape, and thickness of the casting.

6. Ejection and pickup

It is advisable to adjust the ejection stroke, ejector pressure and speed of the ejector pin so that the casting can remove the mold force without damaging the casting and can be easily removed from the mold with pliers.

7. Spraying of release agent

After the casting is taken out, clean the surface of the mold and the injection hammer with compressed air, and spray an appropriate amount of release agent on the surface of the cavity and core to form an extremely thin non-metallic film on the surface. The casting is demoulded. The film formation condition is that the mold surface has an appropriate temperature (250~280℃) and the release agent must be fine mist.

8. Control of mold temperature and die-casting cycle

The mold temperature has a direct relationship with the die-casting cycle. Long cycle means low mold temperature; short cycle means high mold temperature. If the mold temperature is too low, it is easy to produce long casting, cold separation, patterns, shrinkage cracks, etc., while the mold temperature is too high, the condensation speed is slow, and bubbles and mold sticking are easy to occur. Generally, the mold temperature is controlled at 200~250°C. This refers to the mold temperature after cleaning and spraying and before closing the mold.

9. Control of injection speed

Injection speed refers to the distance that the punch moves in a unit time. It is divided into three levels, namely, one-speed, two-speed, and fast injection.

1) One-speed injection refers to the speed from the start of the hammer head to the point that the hammer head seals the injection port, which can be changed by adjusting the slow injection flow rate, generally 0.1~0.3m/s;

2) Two-speed injection refers to the advancing speed at which the alloy liquid in the injection chamber is pushed to the cavity from the injection port until the alloy liquid is sent to the inner gate. The selection principle: a. Push the injected alloy liquid The heat loss before the inner gate is minimal; b. The alloy liquid will not roll, swell and entrain when it is pushed forward;

3) Fast injection refers to the speed at which the punch pushes the alloy liquid to the inner gate until the cavity is filled. The general selection principle for this level is: a. The alloy liquid must have good fluidity before filling the cavity; b. Keep the alloy liquid filling the cavity in an ideal and orderly manner, and discharge the cavity gas; c. Do not form a high-speed metal flow to wash the cavity core to avoid mold sticking. In general, it is adjusted gradually from the low limit to the high limit. In the case of not affecting the quality of the casting, a lower filling speed is appropriate. The adjustment of the starting point of the fast injection speed has a great influence on the quality of the casting;

10. Filling pressure and boost pressure

1) Filling pressure refers to the pressure required for the punch to inject the metal liquid in the pressure chamber into the inner gate within the required time during rapid injection until the cavity is filled. The filling pressure is determined by the process parameters during filling and the cross-sectional area of the inner gate. It has a great influence on the quality of the casting and lays the foundation for the realization of the final pressure (boost pressure).

2) Pressurization pressure refers to the final pressure that the punch acts on the molten metal when the molten metal fills the cavity and the injection cylinder is pressurized before it is completely solidified. The use of pressurized pressure will make the appearance and contour of the casting more clear, the internal structure of the metal is more fine, and the quality of the casting is significantly improved. But you can’t blindly increase the boost pressure, otherwise it will only increase the flash of the castings and reduce the service life of the mold, thus failing to get the desired effect. Principle: The boosting flow of thick-walled parts is small, and the boosting flow of thin-walled parts is large. To adjust the pressure increase is to adjust the pressure building time, and the minimum pressure building time for a die-casting machine is certain. The pressure build-up time of Lijin magnesium alloy die-casting machine is ≤20ms.

11. In the process of testing beer products, carefully observe and analyze the products, and make corresponding parameter adjustments until the products are adjusted to the customer’s satisfaction.

12. After the test beer is completed, the test mold parameter table must be filled in and brought back to the company for archives.
