Development of Customized Software for Designing Gating System of Compressor Rotor Dies
Main Article Content
An important factor for obtaining defect free pressure die cast parts is good design of the gating system. Gating system is a path of flow of molten alloy during filling of casting. In this project a systematic approach has been developed to design gating system for pressure die casting die. This involved studying current design practices in the industry and translating this into a knowledge base of rules for machine selection, design of gate, gate runner, runner, and overflows. The entire approach has been implemented in a windowbased program using visual C#.It has been successfully tested on industrial case study. It is perhaps the first attempt of its kind in the area of pressure die casting die design, and is expected to be of significant interest and value to the industry.
