Abstract
The lower case is part of a gearbox to support the hub or bearing. The material of this casting is ductile iron. Process design is based on the paste-like solidification of ductile iron and the self-expanding characteristics of graphite[1]. The pouring system is designed according to the theory of large hole outflow. The cavity is filled with liquid metal fleetly and reposefully. Ultimately, the acquired casting has compact structure and no obvious shrinkage. By way of sand casting, furan resin sand is used as sand - type material. Throughout the design process, software such as UG VE PROcast and CAD are used to support simulation. The parameters of casting process have been optimized to get better results.
