Summary High pressure die casting (HPDC) is a versatile process for producing engineered metal parts by forcing molten metal under high pressure into reusable steel dies. However there are a large number of attributes involved which contribute to the complexity of the process. A novel integrated approach is developed to optimize the high pressure die casting processes. The die temperature profiles will be studied with infrared thermograph technology and the internal cooling system will be optimized to provide even cooling to the components and the die. The heat stored in the die and the components is studied with image processing. Based on the geometrical profile of the components, cooling channels can be redesigned to improve the cooling efficiency while the cooling time is reduced. This will not only significantly improve the quality of the castings but also improve the productivity of the process.
