Abstract: An integrated virtual and rapid prototyping methodology is proposed for advanced die-casting manufacturing using a hot-chamber process. This methodology involves virtual prototyping, rapid prototyping, P-Q² analysis and a Numerical Control (NC) connected to transducers to control in real-time the die-casting manufacturing parameters. This approach optimises the die-casting manufacturing technology parameters reducing the lead-time of die-casting designs. A case study is presented to validate the proposed methodology.
