Abstract Scope High pressure die casting is a complex manufacturing process that requires a highly developed work force. A virtual die casting machine has been developed for operators to provide a better understanding of how the machine works and how to deal with a variety of practical situations and issues that arise on the shop floor. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations have also been developed and integrated into the simulator to help die casters understand how parameters such as shot speed can affect the resulting quality of castings being produced. A virtual melter furnace is also being developed to learn and practice maintenance and safety procedures. The simulator was developed for virtual reality (VR) headsets and controllers, but is also usable on standard PC with mouse and keyboard. Development methodology and overview of simulator functionality will be discussed.
