  1. 1. Die life prediction using High Pressure Die Casting simulations

    University essay from Jönköping University/JTH, Material och tillverkning

    Author : Halses Sebastian Sivertsen; [2020]
    Keywords : HPDC; simulations; aluminum alloys; MAGMAsoft;

    Abstract : Global trends in automotive industry for weight reduction drives an interest for casting of structural aluminum parts. High pressure die casting (HPDC) is chosen for this purpose since it enables manufacturing of large series parts where complexity and repeatability is demanded. READ MORE

  2. 2. HPDC Die design for Additive Manufacturing : Simulation and Comparison of Thermal Stresses in HPDC die designed for Additive Manufacture

    University essay from Högskolan i Jönköping/JTH, Industriell produktutveckling, produktion och design; Högskolan i Jönköping/JTH, Industriell produktutveckling, produktion och design

    Author : Ambareeksh Tharayil Pradeep; Mohammadali Baradaran; [2019]
    Keywords : High Pressure Die Casting; Additive Manufacturing; Finite Elements Analysis;

    Abstract : Additive manufacturing has a great potential to benefit die manufacture by shortening the lead time considerably and lifting the limitations on design complexity imposed by conventional manufacturing techniques. However, AM has its own requirements that together are known as Design for Additive Manufacturing and account for the process limitations. READ MORE

  3. 3. Design optimization for obtaining zero defects in steel casting

    University essay from Högskolan i Jönköping/JTH, Material och tillverkning

    Author : Pranit Pramod Purkar; [2019]
    Keywords : Casting; Defects; Gating System; Molten Metal; Mould; Simulation;

    Abstract : This thesis is about the design of the gating system and selection of proper alloy for defects free (grate bar) casting. The gating system plays an important role in casting manufacturing process. The gating system has different elements like pouring cup, sprue, well, runner, riser, and ingates. READ MORE

  4. 4. Evaluation of Different Concepts for Pressed and Sintered Connecting Rods

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskap och matematik

    Author : Mattias Rehn; [2019]
    Keywords : Connecting Rod; Con Rod; Fatigue; Buckling; Manufacturing; Höganäs AB; CAD; FEM; FEA;

    Abstract : Connecting rod are found in most combustion engines and transmits thrust from the piston to the crankshaft. The connecting rod needs to withstand forces from the piston and inertia forces which results in axial tension, compression stresses and bending. READ MORE

  5. 5. Comparison of different aluminium casting processes from an environmental perspective : Case study on plaster mould castings produced in Mid Sweden

    University essay from Mittuniversitetet/Avdelningen för ekoteknik och hållbart byggande

    Author : Henning Schaub; [2018]
    Keywords : Abiotic Depletion Potential; Acidification potential; Aluminium; Carbon Footprint; Casting; Comparison; Eutrophication; Foundry; Global Warming Potential; GWP100a; LCA; Life Cycle Assessment; Lost Wax Casting; Ozone Depletion Potential; Photochemical Oxidation Potential; Plaster Mould Casting; Plaster of Paris; Sand Casting; Pressure Die Casting; Screening LCA; Sweden;

    Abstract : While Aluminium has lots of unique properties and is seen as a material of the future, its production and manufacturing has significant environmental impacts. For complex and dimensional shapes casting remains the main manufacturing method and in this study the environmental pressure of different casting techniques is compared. READ MORE
