Paper Title:
Effect of Moulding Sand Properties on Cost Effective Hybrid Rapid Casting Solution for Zinc Alloy
  Abstract

The purpose of the present experimental investigations is to study the effect of moulding sand properties on reducing the shell wall thickness of mould cavity for cost effective, hybrid rapid casting solution of zinc alloy. Starting from the identification of component/benchmark, technological prototypes were produced, with three different moulding sands (dry, green and molasses), at different shell wall thickness of mould cavity using hybrid rapid prototyping technique (combination of three dimensional printing and conventional sand casting). Measurements on the coordinate measuring machine helped in calculating the dimensional tolerances of the castings produced. Some important mechanical properties were also compared to verify the suitability of the castings. The study suggested that for the shell thickness, having value less than the recommended one is more suitable from dimensional accuracy and economic point of view, for all three moulding sands. Further best shell wall thickness of the mould cavity for different moulding sands, for the selected component/benchmark has been highlighted for rapid casting solution of zinc alloy.
