Aluminum alloy die casting has some advantages that other castings cannot match, such as beautiful, light weight and corrosion resistance, which makes it widely popular among users, especially since the light weight of automobile, aluminum alloy casting has been widely used in the automobile industry.

The density of aluminum alloy die casting is smaller than cast iron and cast steel, while the specific strength is higher. Therefore, under the same load conditions using aluminum alloy castings, can reduce the weight of the structure, so in the aviation industry and power machinery and transport machinery manufacturing, aluminum alloy castings are widely used. Aluminum alloy has good surface gloss and good corrosion resistance in the atmosphere and fresh water, so it has a wide range of uses in the manufacture of civil utensils. Pure aluminum has good corrosion resistance in oxidizing acid media such as nitric acid and acetic acid, so aluminum castings also have certain uses in the chemical industry. Pure aluminum and aluminum alloys have good thermal conductivity, so they are suitable for the heat exchange devices used in chemical production and the parts with good thermal conductivity required in power machinery, such as cylinder head and piston of internal combustion engine, etc.
