In a typical foundry floor, several precautions are taken prior to the casting in order to achieve pore-free, high quality parts. In low pressure die castings, these operations involve runner design, pressure adjustment, die temperature selection, cooling locations etc. For the melt, it is important to determine the degassing duration and gas flow rate. In addition, the period of modification (Ti, Sr) addition also plays a significant role. Even after optimization of all these parameters, reject parts can still be found. What has always been disregarded is the quality assessment of the ingot suppliers. Therefore, in this work, four different A356 ingot provider’s quality has been investigated in the wheel producer company. Reduced pressure test was used to quantify melt quality by means of bifilm index measurement. In addition, fluidity, feedability and tensile tests have been carried out. The rejection rates were compared according to provider’s quality level.
