  • Description
  • Contents

The “Aluminum Permanent Mold Handbook” was created to fill the need for information on the increased application of permanent mold castings. These expanded casting applications are a direct result of advances in the process technology and of the enhanced knowledge of this process by today's design engineers. Members of the AFS Aluminum Division Technical Committee 2E, Permanent Mold Practices, were responsible for the development of this handbook. Foundry personnel, design engineers, and process engineers will benefit from the “Aluminum Permanent Mold Handbook.” Highlights include: alloy selection; process variations with typical parts applications; manual, semi-automated or fully automated castings processes; casting defect causes and remedies; computer simulation.
