The die casting industry is under increasing pressure to improve production rates to enable greater productivity. Employing conformal cooling channels could potentially improve a die performance through the reduction of solidi. cation times. The paper reviews simulated solidi. cation results from a traditional cooling channel design and a conformal cooling channel design. The paper continues by describing the construction of bonded laminate insert with integrated cooling channels. Casting trials were conducted using the inserts to validate the simulated results. Work to date has demonstrated the ability to manufacture laminate inserts quickly, the accuracy of finite element analysis and the importance of designing conformal cooling channels.
