Process Optimization Simulation of Cast-Steel Rear Axle
In this paper, the View Cast software was used in the optimization of cast-steel rear axle production. The simulation results were adopted in the design of the gating system (including the dimensions of the gating system, the number of the risers and its dimensions) and the iron chills. Practical trial-manufacturing, compared with the numerical simulation, has shown that the new design had effectively eliminated the defect and improved the cast.
