Pressure Diecasting, Part 1: Metals-Machines-Furnaces covers topics on surface treatments, joining methods, process practices, inspection techniques, and many other features concerned with materials engineering. Organized into six chapters, this book first explains the process of pressure diecasting. Subsequent chapters then discuss the pressure diecasting alloys and machines. Other chapters describe furnaces used in pressure diecasting and the assessment of their performance; health and safety in pressure diecasting foundries; and some applications of statistics to pressure diecasting foundry variables. Readers will find this book useful in developing his excellence and practices in the field.
