Optimization of production Zn alloy casting by HPDC technology
Odehnal, Pavel ; Kaňa, Václav (referee) ; Krutiš, Vladimír (advisor)
The master thesis deals with the analysis and design of a solution for removing defects on a selected zinc casting. The theoretical part of the thesis is focused on the description of individual types of zinc alloys, which are most often used in common practice. It is followed by a description of the technology of high-pressure casting and what types of technologies and machine designs for high-pressure casting are standardly used in operation. The most common defects in high-pressure die casting are also described. The practical part of the thesis is focused on the analysis of a defect in a selected manufactured zinc casting with the determination of which defect it is. A non-destructive test is carried out on the casting to analyse the rate of occurrence of this defect, followed by an analysis using numerical simulation, and making several modifications to reduce the rate of occurrence of this defect.
Casting production of an optimized inlet shape of pneumobile engine pneumatic cylinder
Bouchner, Jan ; Záděra, Antonín (referee) ; Krutiš, Vladimír (advisor)
Presented bachelor's thesis deals with production of a pneumatic component using hybrid investment casting technology. This method combines investment casting with additive technologies. The manufactured component, called cap-end, supplies compressed air to the pneumatic drive of a racing car. Complex design of this component was created using computer fluid dynamics optimization. This design was delivered by the Pneumobile racing team Brno. Presented thesis further contains a technological consideration taking into account solidification direction, on the basis of which the delivered geometry was modified. Manufacturability of the component is verified by a numerical simulation in the ProCAST environment. This thesis also describes printing process of a combustible model using fused deposition modelling technology. The combustible model is used in the production of a ceramic shell. Using said ceramic shell AlSi10Mg alloy casting was made. The component had to meet the requirements for leak tightness after machining and subsequent assembly. The leak tightness is assessed here as a pressure drop in a closed circuit measured over time. Furthermore, the effect of the cap-end on properties of the racing car in relation to the original geometry was investigated. The comparison is made on the basis of the race car's unloaded wheel speed measurements. The outcome of the thesis is a functional cap-end component that validates the results of a scientific article published by members of the Pneumobile racing team Brno.

Use of 3D technology in foundry industry
Straka, Pavel ; Krutiš, Vladimír (referee) ; Pernica, Vítězslav (advisor)
The work is focused on replacing a faulty briefcase handle with an aluminium substitution. The handle is fabricated with the help of reverse engineering, where the handle is scanned with a 3D scanner. With that information, a model copy of the part is made, which is 3Dprinted from PLA and PolyCast materials. These handles are used as expendable models, which are used for casting using an “investment casting” method. Those are made from an AlSi10Mg alloy. Theoretical part deals with additive technologies, which are mostly used for manufacturing of foundry models and moulds. Next, the basic principles of 3Dscanning are described, and the term reverse engineering is also explained.
Introduction of special die lubricant - micro spraying into the conditions of high pressure die foundry
Šromota, Michal ; Roučka, Jaromír (referee) ; Krutiš, Vladimír (advisor)
The master thesis, consisting of a theoretical and practical part, focuses on the issue of high pressure die casting, specifically the treatment of the die using micro spray technology. The goal of the thesis was to map the processes that need to be changed in the high pressure die casting foundry in order to successfully implement the use of micro-spraying. The practical part describes the introduction of micro spray technology in the foundry KOVOLIT Modřice a.s. In this case a transition from the conventional spraying method to the micro-spraying is made. After testing, both stable production and the expected savings associated with the operation of micro-spraying were achieved on the selected casting, and therefore it was decided to convert the production of the selected casting to this technology.
