In this project work manufacturing ability of the squeeze hallow casting process have superior likely to micro-structure provided by optical microscope (100x, 400x, 1000x). In squeeze casting, squeeze pressure, pouring and die temperature are considered as the most important process parameters that critically influence on the microstructure in squeeze casting of ADC12 Aluminium alloy. In this present work taguchi method has been utilized to perform experiments, study and analyze the effects and to estimate the image view of each individual process parameters component on the measured 100x, 400x, 1000x optical micrographs. Three levels for each process parameters are considered and L9 orthogonal array has been selected to perform the experiments. Hence taguchi parametric design is an effective method in deciding the optimal process parameter levels by reducing manufacturing cost with lesser number of experiments.
