The Integrated metal / plastic molding (IMKS) is a multi-component injection molding process in which one or more plastic components and a low-melting solder may be used. That is, it is a method of manufacturing parts by die-casting a metal having a low melting point on an injected plastic components. On the other hand, in order to manufacture parts such as a brake pad motor housing for a robot, plastic should be injected onto an aluminum die-casting part. This method can reduce the number of process steps. Therefore, alloys with higher thermal conductivity than aluminum die-casting alloys are required, and fluidity is also an important factor.
In this study, the thermal conductivity and fluidity of alloys were evaluated according to the content of Si, and the effect of Mn or Mg addition on the thermal conductivity and fluidity of Al-5Si-0.5Mg alloy was investigated.
