Numierical topology optimization of gating systems for high-pressure die casting structural components

In this paper a new procedure for a simulation-based optimization of gating systems in aluminum high-pressure die casting is presented. High-pressure die casting in automotive production, especially of structural components made of aluminum alloys, is a manufacturing process which offers great potential as regards lightweight construction as well as economic manufacture. Process technology control as well as a long service life of the tools is of fundamental importance. Both aspects are considerably influenced by the choice of a suitable gating system.
