Abstract

Air and water permanent mold cooling systems were discussed. Advantages and disadvantages of both systems were also studied. Further, a common problem for permanent molds due to improper temperature control was also analyzed to provide solutions for foundries. Various technical factors, such as casting weight, casting modulli and section thickness, production cycle times and quality and expected mold life, must be taken into account while selecting the most cost-effective mold casting systems.
