Defects Analysis and Improvement for Electricmotorcar Aluminum Alloy Wheel by Gravity Casting

Abstract:

Article Preview

Analysis the electricmotorcar aluminum wheels’ hole defect on macroscopic and microscopic, observed that the main defects、concentrated site and the main alloy phase. Combined with the local casting technological parameters, the filling and solidification process of aluminium alloy hub was simulated by using Anycasting software. The results showed that: castings filling smoothly, at the junction of the spoke and the rim and the hub central are easy to produce casting defects. Using the optimized process parameters that is lower pouring temperature, higher pouring height and set the vent to experiment, after comparing the results with the original process known, Shrinkage and porosity defects decreased, but there are still some degree of defects, indicating optimized process parameters have some effect.
