Abstract

This project describes about the design and simulation of investment casting mold for obsolete automotive part using SolidWorks and AnyCasting software. The scope of this project is to generate the 3D CAD data of obsolete automotive part as well as generating investment casting mold design analysis and simulation of the mold design. Investment casting here allocates the production of parts with better accuracy, repeatability, versatility and integrity in a variety of metals and highperformances alloys. Investment casting can manufacture complicated shapes that would be difficult or impossible with die casting, yet like that process, it needs little surface finishing and only minor machining. This project is focusing on designing the mold design using SolidWorks software and the analysis of the filling time, solidification time and defects on the mold design of the investment casting using AnyCasting software simulation. Based on the results that are obtained from the simulation, it found out that the filling time of Design 1, Design 2 and Design 3 are 12.4122, 5.2307 and 6.6537 seconds respectively. From the simulation results, it also found out the defects presence on the product and mold of the Design 1 and Design 3 while Design 2 had only defects on the mold. The best design for this project is Design 2 because the filling time for the mold design fastest compared to other two design and the defects presence only on the mold not on the product although the solidification time for the mold design slowest.
