DIE CASTING PROCESS MODELLING

Ashish Sethiya, Haider Hussain, Sunil Porwal

Abstract


Die-casting is a ‘near net shape’ manufacturing process broadly used for producing class products for many engineering applications. Die casting has the capability to produce the castings with thin walls, low weight, high integrity, close dimensional control, good surface finish, good strength and high rate of production than any other casting process. The die casting method is especially suited for applications where large quantities of small to medium sized part is needed with good detail, a fine surface quality and dimensional consistency. Most die castings are made from non-ferrous metals, specifically zinc, copper, aluminum, magnesium, lead, and tin based alloys, although ferrous metal die castings are possible. There is always a challenge to design and manufacture new products with high quality and shorter lead time at faster production rates.
