Abstract

Currently available sustainability analysis systems for the die-casting process primarily depend on the material properties and do not account for process information. As a result they are unable to assess or compare the sustainability of parts made using different process plans. In this paper, we propose a new computer-aided system named Sustainability Analyzer for Die-casting Process. Here, we discuss the details of the architecture and the working of the proposed system. We analyze sustainability using three sustainability indicators, namely energy use, solid waste and carbon emissions. The proposed system is verified by comparing results with the actual data measured from the shop floor. The proposed system is beneficial for sustainability analysis comparing different plans alongside material properties, ultimately helping the die-casting industry to reduce carbon emissions and material waste besides improving energy efficiency.
