Development of Computer Assisted Tool Design for Material Forming Processes
Current practice in designing tooling components for semisolid processing requires extensive commitments of human resources. Even when utilizing currently available Computer Aided Design (CAD) systems, tool design remains a complex task requiring large amount of design knowledge. Considerations such as part material, tool material, characteristics of die filling, flow behavior of semisolid slurries must be carefully thought by the tool designer to reach an acceptable tooling solution. This paper proposes the framework for computer assisted tool design by integrating tool design domain knowledge into CAD system to help tool designers.
