Tooling Alternative Selection Case Studies

Part of the Mechanical Engineering Series book series (MES)


The tool path evaluation form shown in Table 7.1 is a simple form that allows a sand casting tool design professional to quickly estimate the best tooling alternative selection for a given casting geometry as a function of production volume. The form also allows the tooling professional to document the key considerations driving the selection. It should be noted that the “key tool considerations and issues” include the decision factors discussed in Chapter 6.
