4.2 Mold Solidification Simulation

DC SOLID SIMULATION

Analysis for solidification
Unsolidfied area shown in blue colour and isolated unsolidified area marked in red can not be supplied aluminum easily cause shrinkage porosity.
4.3 Remaining Air Simulation

DC REMAINING AIR SIMULATION

4.4 Mold Temperature Simulation

DC MOLD TEMPERATURE SIMULATION

Analysis for Mold temperature
To balance mold temperature is very important to prevent overheat in the mold to keep stabilized die casting condition.
(1) Continuous cooling in green, (2) Timer controlled cooling in red and (3) Jet cooling are used
Moving Insert
: Cooling1 continuous
: Timer control

Analysis for Mold temperature balance in color identification
To visually check if overheated area of mold temperature balance , temperature identification by color as below is very important to find out the potentially temperature problem consistently during a shot cycle from the first injection till the open of the mold.

8.0 Guaranteed by 3D Scanner / CT Scanner

PRODUCT GUARANTEED BY SIMULATION SOFT AND CT SCAN



Adstefan SCAN
SHIN-EI always examines our product with mold simulations to achieve a higher successes rate of designing meticulous casting features before fabricating the Mold to ensure our design is robust.

Before production, our simulation engineer uses industry leading gate and runner design techniques to determine the best point to inject molten metal into a die, ensuring you receive finished parts with the best density and structural features possible.


CT SCAN
SHIN-EI utilizes the CT scan to ensure internal quality of our product to eliminate porosity, we dig deep into the Aluminum infrastructure to Analyze and Improve with continuous KAIZEN.

SHIN-EI utilizes 3D scanner Technology for precise accuracy to compare with the 3D drawing Vs. actual Casting product to improve production quality output and to prevent production downtime.
