Exco Vent App
The Exco Vent App™ is an easy to use tool for die casting engineers to analyze tool venting efficiency and to establish key parameters for the die casting venting process.The Vent App tool seeks to provide answers to common design and process questions, including:
- How big should the vacuum tank be?
- How big should the vent valve be?
- How long does the vacuum pull time need to be?
- What is the cavity air pressure as metal reaches the in-gates? How much residual air is left in cavity?
- What is the overall venting efficiency of a particular design?
- How much might leakage affect the venting efficiency?
- Is a natural or vacuum assisted venting process most suitable for a certain application?
