Die Casting Lubrication & Die Cooling Computer Modeling

Posted by Hill and Griffith Company on Jun 13, 2018 4:53:03 PM

NADCA will be hosting a Computer Modeling Workshop on July 24, 2018 in Grand Rapids MI.

Computer modeling and simulation has become common place for designing die casting dies. Flow simulation and solidification allow engineers to design gates, runners, overflows and vents to optimize the die casting process for a part. An important, but often overlooked, part of die casting modeling and simulation is thermal control.

Where should water and oil lines be placed?
How does the software account for cooling/heating lines?
How can simulation time be minimized for water/cooling lines?
Is die casting lubrication spray simulated and how does it affect the thermal controls?

Die Casting Simulation

The NADCA Computer Modeling Workshop will take a look at modeling and simulating thermal management for die casting. Professor Al Miller, who has decades of experience working with modeling and simulation in die casting, will moderate the workshop.

Presentations and discussions will provide attendees with ways to optimize their simulations. Attendees are free to bring questions on problems they have faced in modeling die castings. The cost to attend is $300 for Corporate Members, $345 for Individual Members or $405 for Non-Corporate Members. To register please visit www.diecasting.org/national.
