An Expert System for Designing Mold Tooling for Sand Casting
Received Date: September 14, 2019; Published Date: October 11, 2019
The three major steps in developing a new casting product include product design, tooling development and foundry experimentation trials. The sand mold tooling development comprises determining the parting line; designing and making the patterns, cores, and cores prints, which with proving accounts take nearly 70% of the new casting developing lead-time .
This study concerns the creation of an expert system for selection of parting line, design of patterns, cores, and cores prints using AutoCAD 2004 programming language [2-13].
