Paper Title:
Risering of a Four-Cavity Die Production Mould by Convectional Method
  Abstract

This paper demonstrates the possibility of developing skill in producing sound metal casting from a four-cavity die production mould by assessing the riser design criteria and the castings. The assessment takes into account the location of the casting’s hot spots, casting modulus, liquid metal mass in the risers and the principle of directional solidification. The mould flask is oriented in such a way that a riser is placed directly on top of the casting’s hot spots for proper feeding during solidification. The assessment result of casting modulus shows that the feeder modulus Mf = 5.85 x 10-3 M and the casting hot spot modulus Mh = 1.88 x 10-3 M .The assessment result of castings solidification time shows that the castings solidify within 12 seconds while the feeders solidify within 30 seconds. From the assessment results it is observed that the risers hold liquid metal, feed the castings to full solidification and solidify later than the castings which they feed. Examinations at the cross sections of the finished castings revealed the absence of void formation which is a clear indication of effective and functional risers. Thus, the risers have achieved the desired requirement.
