Summary Die cracking and metal blowout have been identified as problems in production of the structural sump, a high pressure die cast aluminium part, at Ford's Geelong manufacturing plant. Visual inspection, thermography and strain measurements have been performed and results are consistent with the view that cracking and blowout are caused by excessive stresses and deflections, respectively, generated by bending of the sliding cores. Models are being developed for finite element simulation of the stresses and deflections in the die during production, with a view to eliminating the aforementioned problems.
