Hitachi Metals Ceramic Shot Sleeve


Sialon is an engineered ceramics


1.  Reduce Cold Flakes  ("Cold Flakes" : solidified aluminum defect pieces (scattered structure) formed in shot sleeve )

Superior heat-retention. "It is possible to stop the use of heating equipment "


2.   Stable shots and longer life  (Especially at High temperature 700or 1290°F)

Less deformation, High corrosion resistance, Erosion resistance and Wear resistance. "It is possible to to eliminate the use of water cooling channel "


3.  Energy saving

Sialon’s superior heat-retention enables lower molten aluminum casting temperature


Structure :The duplex structure achieves high-performance casting.
