Numerical Simulation of Mold Filling Process for Wax Pattern of the Impeller in Investment Casting
This paper try to analyze the rheological behavior during the wax injection, and build a mathematical model to simulate the wax injection process. By using Moldflow, simulate a wax pattern with different ingate configurations to optimize the injection modeling product design. This study helps to improve the model design quality, shorten the development cycles, lower down the overall cost and enhanced competition in market.
