Gravity Die Casting of Motorcycle Components

A permanent mold casting study of the mold design and mold-casting process of an aluminum alloy single-sided-swing-arm

ABSTRACT

The advent of the Naked Motorcycle has changed the way we look at motorcycle parts. In addition to being of excellent quality, reliable, efficient and cost-effective, they now also need to be aesthetically pleasing because they are mostly visible to the naked eye.

This is a permanent mold casting study of the mold design and mold-casting process of an aluminum alloy single-sided-swing-arm developed through the collaboration of EnginSoft, experts in Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) simulation and GFT Battistini, experts in modeling and production of molds on behalf of a major European motorcycle manufacturer. 

This summary of the project illustrates the role that computer aided engineering (CAE) played in the design of the mold, and of the die casting process used to produce the single-sided-swing arm.

CASE STUDY

Shape Rolling of a European Standard Beam IPE Profile

A pilot study carried out by engineers from EnginSoft and Beltrame

The study allowed the engineers to estimate the shape profile geometry after each roll pass, the rolls wear and the total load and point at which the beam will bend in off-center setups.
