This course addresses principles of effective metalcasting design by delving into the major factors that affect final part design. Participants will explore alloy selection, metalcasting process capabilities and limitations and their effects on casting design, and the impact of secondary operations. Discussion and case studies will be used throughout this two-day course to illustrate effective and practical casting design principles. Participants should have knowledge and experience in designing engineered components prior to attending this course. Other topics include Design for manfucturability, fab to casting design conversions, dimensional control and importance of casting simulation.
