... Abstract This article introduces filling and feeding concepts from the general perspective of what constitutes a good casting practice. It briefly reviews the concepts that may help to clarify and quantify objectives for more effective mold-filling designs. The article describes the preprimed...

..., the reader is referred to Ref 1 . General Conditions for the Filling System Layout During the filling of the mold, the main target of the filling system design is to keep air bubbles and oxide films out of the liquid metal. This is achieved by preventing air bubbles and bifilms from entering...

... sand casting with a number of design features that helped to simplify casting problems and permit production at minimum cost. The casting is of relatively uniform section thickness, except for the heavy boss at the top. This boss was ideally placed to facilitate filling the sand mold and to avoid...

... Abstract A gating system is the conduit network through which liquid metal enters a mold and flows to fill the mold cavity, where the metal can then solidify to form the desired casting shape. This article discusses various desirable design considerations for the gating system. Proper design...

... molding machines fill a die through a gate from a pressurized and heated barrel. (The barrel and gate are connected by a nozzle and runner.) A plunger or reciprocating screw generates the pressure needed to fill the die. Computer simulations used for mold filling in plastics are not directly useful...

In such castings, certain walls may be tapered by the addition of padding, which may be incorporated into the design...

In the “wet-bag” process, the mold is filled outside the vessel, transferred in, pressure compacted, and removed. In this process, multiple molds can be processed simultaneously...
