GISS Technology: Principle and Applications in Die Casting


Article Preview

In the past, there have been a lot of effort to solve gas and shrinkage porosity defects in die casting. The common solutions are vacuum technology, jet cooling technology, and application of squeeze pins. However, these solutions often increase the die casting production costs. A new solution that has recently been introduced worldwide is GISS Technology. This technology applies the superheated slurry casting process. Gas and shrinkage porosity defects can be reduced. Furthermore, the production costs are lowered due to die life extension, cycle time reduction, melting energy reduction, and lubrication usage reduction. This paper describes the principle of GISS Technology, and selected applications and case studies are also be presented.
