An Innovative Shot Delivery System for Magnesium 920068
Fast, accurate delivery of metal to the shot well is critical to the success of any cold chamber die casting operation. For some metals this is a simple problem to solve. Magnesium, however, requires more innovative thinking. Simplicity of design is essential for reliable operation in the environment of a magnesium die casting facility. Complex control is required to provide speed and accuracy of shot delivery. Blending these two ingredients to produce a viable system produces a truly innovative shot delivery system for magnesium. Construction details of a newly developed stand alone system for the auto ladling of magnesium will be presented. Data with regard to speed and accuracy will also be presented.
