In the metal casting industry, defects increase cost of production, expand required labor hours, and decrease overall productivity. Better understanding of process variables allows for successful reduction of defects. Utilizing real- time data logging technology and statistical process control software creates the framework for an effective process monitoring system. To establish a correlation between mold temperature and casting defects, a unique data logging system, capable of withstanding high temperatures, was designed. The beneficial results of this project will not only impact the process today, but will help improve future innovations in the industry.
