Abstract

This paper reports the findings from internal mould cooling trials using a water spray configuration applied at various internal mould air temperatures from 120°C to 180°C for an aluminium mould. To achieve maximum benefit in terms of cycle time reduction, internal mould water cooling was used in conjunction with a combination of external forced air and water cooling. Savings in cooling times of up to 30% were achieved compared to conventional external only forced air cooling.
