Computer simulation for the predictions of casting defects is very important to produce high quality castings with less cost. Complicate shaped Al solenoid housing part was selected to be cold chamber die cast and a numerical simulation technique was applied for the optimization of the chill vent position and gating. A first design led to insufficient central flow. This flow left the last filled areas falling into the inner portion of the part. And last filled area did not fit the chill vent position. So these resulted in a high possibility of air entrapment in the casting and the design was not proper for the part. The design was improved by using a proper gating system, a more chill vent and proper overflow positions. New design provided a homogenous mold filling pattern and the last filled areas that being located at the overflow and chill vent. Casting plan which produce good quality solenoid housing part was established by using the computer simulation.
