Thermal management can play a pivotal role in the production of high-quality castings and the reduction of production cycle time by ensuring desired solidification patterns during dynamic casting processes such as permanent mold and die-casting processes. These processes require rapid heat removal and careful heat recovery for subsequent casting cycles, unlike traditional batch processes. Moreover, thermal management in specific localized regions of the mold is needed due to diverse mold geometries and shapes, as well as recent applications such as gigacasting. Local control of heat transfer for thermal management can be accomplished with the application of various thermal technologies, both heating and cooling. In this work, heat transfer characteristics of various thermal technologies were evaluated quantitatively through both modeling and experimental work.
