CAE SIMULATION AND RESPONSE SURFACE METHODOLOGY FOR OPTIMIZATION OF VACUUM CASTING PROCESS
In this paper CAE Simulation, in particular Autodesk MoldFlow and Response Surface Methodology (RSM) which used in order to optimize the wax vacuum casting process. In the first phase, using the Autodesk MoldFlow program it was found the optimal point of casting and in the same time by simulating it was determined points where it was possible to create air bubble in the cast parts; in that places it was fixed the air vents.Key words: rapid tooling, CAE Simulation, Silicone Rubber Mold, Selective Laser Sintering, Response Surface Methodology.
