390 alloy die castings having differences in transverse strength at different positions were studied by measuring molten metal flowing behaviors in a die cavities. A part in a die casting having low transverse strength is that in which solid-liquid mixture of high volume fraction of solid including scattered structures has been filled at slow injection velocity. Primary silicon easily segregates in this part. To reduce the interval from pouring in a sleeve to injection, to increase the
