Die Casting Automation-An Integrated Engineering Approach
This paper identifies key reasons for automating die casting operations, the impact of robots on the automation, and the advantages of using Product Life Cycle Management (PLM) tools to generate and validate the automation process. Introduction Die casting is a process that has been around for several decades. It is a flexible process for producing metal parts by forcing molten metal under pressure into reusable steel molds or dies. The dies can be designed to produce highly accurate and repeatable complex shaped parts.
