Computer aided design of runner & gate in die casting

Abstract

Die Casting is a high tolerance process due to the high Accuracy of Data to reduce theerror factor as much as possible the objective of this paper is to design an AluminumA380 thermo-fan, Aluminum is a low Density ,High Thermal Conductivity & the lowHeat in solidification makes the runner design more difficult, computer Solution inVisual Basic is needed to make a Model of the necessary Equations to CalculateLength ,Depth of Runner , Gate's width & Solidification time Porosity , ComputerGraphic is also Aided by drawing the die & making 3D Solid Model Done withAutoCAD so that later will be linked to the program , Creation of DXF Files wasperformed
