Autumn In America

Autumn In America –

In America today, is the first day of our season called Autumn. Autumn is also known as the first day of FALL. On this day the autumnal equinox, day and night are each about 12 hours long (with the actual time of equal day and night, in the Northern Hemisphere, occurring a few days after the autumnal equinox). The word equinox means “equal night”; night and day are about the same length of time. This time of year is known for color change of the leaves on trees, cooler nights, and harvest.

Compare Plastic to Die Casting

Compare Plastic to Die Casting –

Compare: Aluminum Die Casting Parts to Plastic Injection Molded Parts. Lately, plastic injection molded products have become very plentiful in the environment. More and more plastic products are being produced as a replacement for metal products such as faucets, door knobs, and chair braces. Die casting manufacturing industry is facing an opposing that produces products that do not disintegrate or rust. However, the question is, which is actually better, Die Casting Parts or Plastic Parts?

Durability

Die cast parts are essentially stronger compared to their plastic counterparts. In cases that a material is desired to be built thin and yet tough, die cast parts are desirable. Also, die casting parts can endure a wider range of temperature than their plastic counterparts, permitting them to be more ideal in severe working environments with dangerous temperatures.

Furthermore, since, die casting manufacturers use non ferrous type of metals like aluminum, zinc and magnesium, the quarrel that die cast parts are most probable to corrode easily lacking out of the picture.

Environmental Issue

When it comes to issues with environment, plastic products are not a good choice. If you wonder how long plastic products biodegrade, then the answer is: it takes at least few hundred years. This suggests that old and non-practical plastic products are going to flood the landfills. Likening these plastic products to die cast parts, the latter is really made of recycled material. About ninety five percent of metal utilized in die cast parts production is recycled from recovered parts. With this, metal is established to be a more maintainable material that could be used not only once but countless times over.

2019 Memory of 9-11-01

2019 Memory of 9-11-01 –

The 9-11 terrorist attack was a series of four coordinated Islamic terrorist group attacks by al-Qaeda on the United States on the morning of Tuesday, September 11, 2001. The attacks killed almost 3,000 people, injured over 6,000 others, and caused at least $10 billion in infrastructure and property damage.

They used four airliners operated by two major U.S. airline carriers United Airlines and American Airlines, all of which departed from airports in the northeastern United States bound for California. These airplanes were hijacked by 19 al-Qaeda terrorists. Two of the planes, American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175, were crashed into the North and South towers, respectively, of the World Trade Center complex in New York City. Within an hour and 42 minutes, both 110-story towers collapsed, with debris and the resulting fires causing partial or complete collapse of all other buildings in the World Trade Center complex, including the 47-story 7 World Trade Center tower, as well as significant damage to ten other large surrounding structures. A third plane, American Airlines Flight 77, was crashed into the Pentagon (the headquarters of the United States Department of Defense) in Arlington County, Virginia, leading to a partial collapse of the building’s western side. The fourth plane, United Airlines Flight 93, initially was steered toward Washington, D.C., but crashed into a field in Stonycreek Township near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, after its passengers tried to overcome the hijackers. 9/11 was the single deadliest incident for firefighters and law enforcement officers in the history of the United States, with 343 and 72 killed respectively.

Closed Labor Day 2019

Closed Labor Day 2019 –

Kinetic Die Casting Company will be closed today, Monday September 2, in observance of Labor Day.

Some fun facts from the US Department of Labor (http://www.dol.gov/laborday/history.htm)
labor day image
Closed Labor Day 2018

The first Labor Day holiday was celebrated on Tuesday, September 5, 1882, in New York City, in accordance with the plans of the Central Labor Union. The Central Labor Union held its second Labor Day holiday just a year later, on September 5, 1883.

In 1884 the first Monday in September was selected as the holiday, as originally proposed, and the Central Labor Union urged similar organizations in other cities to follow the example of New York and celebrate a “workingmen’s holiday” on that date. The idea spread with the growth of labor organizations, and in 1885 Labor Day was celebrated in many industrial centers of the country.

Monitor Dynamics Die Castings

Monitor Dynamics Die Castings –

A customer of ours, in the early 1990’s, contacted Kinetic Die Casting Company, to send us their die casting tooling so we could produce an aluminum die casting enclosure housing for them. This company, Monitor Dynamics Incorporated (MDI), produced a security card reader system used in government buildings. MDI was well known for their high quality security systems. MDI demanded high quality products from their suppliers.

This aluminum die casting part had transformed many times from its inception. It started out as a steel box that was welded together. The design was simple, ¼ inch plates welded together in a box shape with a slot to slide electronic cards through and an area for a keypad. The next change was to make aluminum sand castings in a similar design. Later, the delivery and quantity requirements for the programs required MDI to purchase die casting tooling and die casting parts from a competitor of ours.

Unfortunately, our competitor did not realize the important differences between aluminum sand casting parts and aluminum die casting parts. The part design was poorly planned in the following ways:

  • The draft on the interior walls was not properly created, the parts has several drag marks and stuck too easily in the tool.
  • The tooling die not include a mold base, it consisted of inserts only. This kept the customer captive to the poor quality die casting company, our competitor.
  • The wall thicknesses of 1/4” or more, “for higher strength”. Greater wall thicknesses in die casting parts for greater strength is a misconception.

Here is how I helped MDI get good quality parts. First, I had my toolmaker fix the internal draft angle problems so the aluminum housing parts would no longer stick in the die casting tool. Secondly, I mounted the inserts into one of our many available mold bases so we could make good quality die casting production parts.

Then finally, we fought the production process to make good parts in spite of the problems and complications from the ¼” or greater wall thicknesses. There were many complications, such as, several sink marks or surface porosity from the metal wicking from thinner areas of the casting to the thicker areas. The casting would deform easily in the cooling process. The internal porosity from the thicker sections would also cause the paint and powder coating to bubble.

MDI was very pleased with the results we provided them. Their purchasing manager sent me a letter of appreciation. MDI is now known as Ameritron, Incorporated. You can read a copy of the letter of appreciation from the purchasing manager here..

“In the 12 years, Kinetic Die Casting has been an excellent supplier providing good pricing, excellent product and on time delivery. If you have a need for die casting products I would highly recommend Kinetic Die Casting”
