Study and Application of CAE Simulation in Die-Casting Die Design
The CAE simulations of filling and solidification processes for die-casting are studied. Numerical analysis is presented for a practical die-casting part using HZ CAE software. The temperature distributions and filling states in solidification and filling process are presented. Then the deficiencies of the part are predicted. Based on the analyzing results, the two die halves are modified and the die-casting parameters are adjusted. The service life of the revised die is increased from 12,000 shots to 20,000shots. It is proved that CAE simulation results can offer a helpful reference for die-casting die design.
