can any one suggest a appropriate gating system in casting aluminium alloy LM25 connecting rod by gravity die casting (permanent mold).
1. should it be poured vertically with big end at the bottom or small end at the bottom.
2. should it be poured in a horizontal fashion with the con rod lying on the stomach or sideways.
3. parting line is at the centre vertically.
4. does it require a riser.
5 has anyone done simulation, where are the hot spots.
thanks in advance,
