|Abstract: ||The die casting industry is under increasing pressure to improve production
rates to enable greater productivity. The potential to decrease the cycle time is of great
significance. A small reduction in the cycle time can significantly improve production rates.
Employing conformal cooling channels allows improvements to be made to die
performance through the reduction of solidification times. The paper reviews simulated
solidification results from a traditional cooling channel design and a conformal cooling
channel design. The paper continues by describing the construction of bonded laminate
insert with integrated cooling channels. Casting trials were conducted using the inserts to
validate the simulated results. Work to date has demonstrated the ability to manufacture
laminate inserts quickly, the accuracy of computational fluid dynamics and the importance
of conformal cooling design.|
