Application of Automobile Lightweight Alloys and the Development of its Die-Casting Technology
With the development of lightweight vehicles, lightweight alloy materials has been increasingly used in automotive industry, automobile manufacturers are therefore looking for thinner and stronger materials so that the higher requirements has became a challenge to lightweight alloy die-casting technology. The paper summarized the applications of lightweight alloys in the automotive industry, and the new advances of lightweight alloys die-casting technology, such as low pressure die-casting, semi-solid die casting, oxygenation die-casting and the combination of different die-casting technologies, and discussed the development trend of the lightweight alloy die-casting technology.
