Casting Process Simulation of the Ball Milling Machine End Cover with a Hug Diameter
The solidification process, the formation mechanism and distribution law of microporosity of the ball milling machine head cover made by SVEDALA corporation of USA were simulated by computer. The Solidworks software was used to generate three-dimensional model of cast parts and the Hua-casting software was employed to simulate the casting process. The simulated results show that significant microporosity was found in the middle of two casting heads and at the place of gudgeon journal because of insufficient chilling degree. The processing rationality was judged through the computer-aided technology, by which some drawbacks of the traditional process were overcome and the process design quality was improved.
