Abstract

In today’s competitive world of castings, foundry has made significant advancements in the production, sale, storage methods .in production technology advancements using technology, technology plays a significant role to meet the demands and fulfill the challenges of production. Casting methods also have undergone various changes to make the process easier, faster and economical. Out of many processes of casting, there is a process called as Gravity Die Casting .It uses the principle that the molten metal flows under action of gravity due to its self weight so as to fill the die. The earlier method of production using Horizontal Gravity Die Casting method faced many problems like shrinkage, porosity, blowholes, turbulence .The main cause of it was faulty pouring method. This pouring method contains the pouring of molten metal directly into the die by using manual labour. This project aims at reducing rejection of finished product by increasing precision, accuracy. This can be achieved by changing the pouring method by tilting the die. This project briefs on design, analysis and production of Vertical tilting Gravity Die Casting machine. It is nothing but a machine which will tilt the die and cause the pouring of molten metal in the die by semiautomatic method and eliminating manual pouring in the die.
