Core Viability Simulation for Salt Core Technology in High-Pressure Die Casting

University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Erlangen, GermanyB. Fuchs & C. Körner Casting Technology Development, AUDI AG, Ingolstadt, GermanyB. Fuchs & H. Eibisch Corresponding author Correspondence to B. Fuchs. Abstract In high-pressure die casting (HPDC) undercuts can only be fabricated by using complex high-maintenance sliders. Until now, this technology has not been used for large-scale and cost-sensitive serial applications. Sand cores from

Optimizing process parameters to reduce blowholes in high pressure die casting using Taguchi methodology

N. Rathinam ⇑, R. Dhinakaran, E. SharathDepartment of Mechanical Engineering, Pondicherry Engineering College, Pillaichavady, Puducherry, 605014, India Abstract Products manufactured from every manufacturing process exhibit some defects. To supply quality products to the customer these defects must be reduced. The motivation for this work is to reduce defects in end products reaching customers, thereby increasing
