"It's about time that a practicing engineer with casting and academic experience has written a book that provides answers to questions about squeeze casting and semi-solid molding/forming that many engineers and students of casting need answered." —Joseph C. Benedyk, PhD, Consultant and retired technical director, Alcoa High Integrity Die Casting Processes provides a comprehensive look at the concepts behind advanced die casting technologies, including vacuum die casting, squeeze casting, and several variants of semi-solid metalworking. Practical applications for these processes are illustrated in numerous case studies. This single-source reference tool presents the latest material in five sections: Basic concepts of die casting and molten metal flow High integrity die casting processes with case studies Product design considerations Controlling quality and avoiding defects Future advances under development Key coverage includes a survey of liquid metal flow, strategies to overcome the limitations of conventional die casting, and potential defects unique to high integrity die casting processes. Also featured are methods for minimizing porosity, reducing cost by design, practical applied statistical process control techniques, designing for manufacturability, and containment methods for potential processing defects. Several chapters present detailed real-world examples illustrating the broad range of applications possible using high integrity die casting processes. Included with this book is a CD-ROM containing PowerPoint(r) presentations for each chapter. These presentations can be used for training purposes in conjunction with numerous study questions designed to practically apply the content of the book to real-world situations. Selected PowerPoint(r) slides can be used to support engineering proposals, marketing presentations, or customer education seminars. High Integrity Die Casting Processes is a valuable reference for both component producers and component users alike. Process engineers, tool designers, manufacturing engineers, production managers, and machine operators will acquire a better understanding of these advanced die casting processes to optimize manufacturing and improve product quality.

This book presents a scientific approach to metal casting design and analysis supported by software tools. Unlike other books in metal casting focused only on the process know-how, this book uncovers the know-why as well. Besides serving the needs of students of mechanical, production and metallurgical engineering, this book is equally meant to benefit practicing engineers involved or interested in casting development, including product designers, toolmakers, foundry engineers, supply chain managers, engineering consultants, researchers, and software developers. The theory discussed in the book is applicable to all types of castings: ferrous and non-ferrous, produced in sand and metal moulds. By gaining a better understanding of the theory and logic involved through creating, analysing and optimizing virtual castings, the readers will learn how to: Design process-friendly cast products, leading to shorter development time Manufacture assured quality castings, leading to fewer rejections and 'surprises' Manage material and energy utilization, leading to higher yield and lower costs.

This book is a basic introduction to lost-wax casting with emphasis on jewelry making. It is designed to be used both as a textbook and a reference book and is directed primarily at beginners. Experienced casters, however, will probably find some useful ideas; they may even find some new techniques. Heavy emphasis is placed upon understanding why things are done in a particular way, rather than simply presenting a set of cookbook rules that will always work. The book is also available in a 8.5x11 inch comb-bound version for use in the shop or classroom. See ISBN 0-9679600-1-0.

Designed for the undergraduate students of mechanical engineering and allied branches, this book serves as a bridge between the study of the basic processes and their application in production industries. This book covers two similar fundamental processes—foundry and welding—in a single volume. The chapters of the book are grouped in seven modules. A separate module is devoted to introduce the preliminaries of the two areas namely casting and joining processes. Miscellaneous welding and allied processes, including the modern methods and thermal cutting, conventional sand mould casting, special and modern casting methods, conventional metal joining processes and theory of solidification of metal, its metallurgy, defects in castings and casting design procedure are covered in the book. The theory of each process is explained with the help of simple line sketches which can be easily reproduced by a student at the time of examination. Enough worked out examples and problems are given for practice, especially in the design areas. At the end of each chapter, sufficient number of review questions are given as exercise.
