In today’s competitive age foundries are required to be more active and efficient. They need to respond fast. For that casting simulation has become a powerful tool to visualize mould filling, solidification, cooling, and to predict the location of internal defects such as shrinkage, porosity, sand inclusions, and cold shuts. It can be used for existing castings process or for developing new castings before shop-floor trials. The analysis has been carried out by considering the case study of the part CASTED PLUG which is used in casting manufacturing unit in vadodara. For analysis Auto-CAST software is used to find the hotspot which is compare with the actual defects present in the part by using the manufacturing data used by the industry for the production of the part.
