In the present world with the increasing use of Aluminum alloy wheels in automotive industry the Al uminum foundry industry had to focus on the quality of the products. The quality of a foundry industry can be increased by minimizing the casting defects during production. Shrinkage cavity may be detrimental to mechanical performances of casting parts. As a consequence, design engineers often use overly large safety factors in many designs due to insufficient understanding of quantitative effects of shrinkage cavity defects. Now a day casting simulation has become a powerful tool to understand mould fillin g, solidification and cooling to predict the location of internal defects such as shrinkage porosity, sand inclusions and cold shuts. It can be used for developing new casting without shop - floor trials. This dissertation describes the benefits of casting s imulation and how to reduce shrinkage defect in casting part with Simulation process and theoretical background. Aim of the current study is to study the production line of an aluminum alloy wheel manufacturing industry and to improve the quality of produc tion using quality control tools .
