Ceramic Composite Die For Metalcasting (Inventions and Innovation)

ABSTRACT
The goals of this project are to design, fabricate, and demonstrate molds that will withstand the copper motor rotor die casting environment for an economically acceptable life of 1,000 or more cycles. Using an innovative chemical vapor composites material-forming process, ThermoTrex will demonstrate that tungsten and molybdenum can be used to manufacture cost- and energy-efficient casting molds.
