CSIRO and Amaero develop better cooling for die cast tooling
Australian Manufacturing, Other, 14/10/2020
The collaboration was supported through an Innovation Connections grant, and supports Amaero’s recent diversification into printed tooling. “High pressure die casting (HPDC) is by far the most popular manufacturing route for mass-produced near-net-shape metal parts,” said Sam Tartaglia, Program Manager at Amaero. […] According to a statement from CSIRO, the team used virtual reality and finite element analysis modelling to create an optimal solution for the channels in the new H13 die tools’ sprue area, enabling shorter cycle times.
