As a forming process, squeeze casting is completed in the corresponding manufacturing system. The paper deals with the overall design of the manufacturing system-the forming system for squeeze casting. To construct a practical manufacturing system for this technology, the forming control process of squeeze casting is analyzed, where the key factors are identified to determine the production quality. Then the design principles for the forming system for squeeze casting are built and its functional requirements are attained. And an overall structure for this forming system is presented including the die design system, the design and management system of process parameters and the squeeze casting equipment system. This structure decreases the difficulties and the cost of building the physical system.
