Review of Optimization Aspects for Casting Processes

Yazad N. Doctor | Dr. Bhushan T. Patil | Aditya M. Darekar

Abstract: In todays global competitive environment there is a need for the casting set ups and foundries to develop the components in short lead time. Defect free castings with minimum production cost have become the need of this indispensable industry. Rejection of casting is caused due to defective components. These defects depend on various process parameters which need to be improved using various methods in optimization. The IT industry with the help of manufacturing industry have developed various software packages which simulate the casting process which help to identify the parameters affecting the quality of castings. The simulated results can be used to predict the defects, optimize the factors and take corrective steps to minimise these defects. This paper provides comprehensive literature review about optimization aspects of casting process and shows shear necessity of investigation of the process parameters and process optimization.
