Numerical Optimization Design on Coating of EPC Steel Casting
Expandable Pattern Casting (EPC) technology has been more and more extensively applied to the production of steel castings in many countries, which brings outstanding economic and social benefits. Applying the best quality coating is one of the key measures to guarantee casting surface quality. Based upon experiments made for many times, the orthogonal experiments of five factors and four levels are adopted to optimize coating working properties and processing properties. Tested by practice, the coating performance indicators of intensity, permeability, coating property, dropping amount and flowing flat property reach a perfect state, which provided a reliability assurance to product sound castings.
