Process that we do

Before the casting process begins, we perform several critical steps. A number of checks are performed before casting begins, such as inspecting raw materials, testing sand mixtures, and examining cores and modulus. The casting process ends with the final inspection of the product.

Aluminum Pressure Die Casting Process

Metal components that are net-shaped and have tight tolerances can be fast, reliable and cost-effectively manufactured using pressure die casting. Pressurized die casting involves injecting molten metal alloys under high pressure into steel molds (or tools). A net-shaped component is formed by rapid solidification (up to milliseconds). This is followed by an automatic extraction process.

There are two types of pressure die casting.

Aluminum Pressure Die Casting and Forging

Aluminum Forging Process

Infrared heating is applied to the process of making Aluminum Hot Forgings, resulting in enhanced material properties: fatigue life, fine grain aluminum metallurgy, and hardenability. In order to reduce energy consumption and reduce costs, Queen City Forging uses infrared heating technology.

The Rapid Infrared (RI) heating process can reduce heating times by an order of magnitude, decrease energy consumption by a factor of three, and make forgings with superior mechanical and metallurgical properties in comparison to conventional heating processes.
