In cold chamber die casting, the casting metal is heated and melted in an external furnace. The molten material is then manually or automatically transferred to the injection system, which, in turn, transfers the metal to the casting die. The advantage of this method over hot chamber die casting is its ability to accommodate a broader range of metals. Some metals have higher melting points than are practically achieved with integrated hot chambers. The external furnace component in cold chamber die casting equipment easily reaches the temperatures necessary for these metal. However, the additional step of moving the molten metal from the furnace to the injection system increases the overall production time and, consequently, the production costs.
