Evolution of filling system design for an A356-T6 aluminum housing casting
The results of a student project to produce two housing halves for an engine dynamometer are presented in this paper. The filling systems were designed to minimize turbulence and damage to the metal. The results of small changes in the filling system design are discussed. A new method of using different parts of the filling system (rigging) to evaluate the results of quality improvement efforts is introduced.
