Casting defects can negatively impact the bottom line of foundry. A defect in a casting deteriorates casting surface quality and mechanical properties. It is responsible for loss of profitability, quality level and productivity of component. Hence it is preferably necessary to reduce it as much as possible by appropriate analysis. As far as the casting with thick sections are concerned, finding the Hot Spot is very important, asMost of the casting defects occur due to “Hot spot” which is the part of casting that gets solidified last. This paper presents case study carried out in local foundry over Bearing Housing to minimize casting rejection due to major defects like blow hole and shrinkage cavities. Study is focused on route cause analysis of Blow holes and shrinkage cavities defect which contribute heavypercentage of rejection.The objective of this research is to optimize gating system by using simulation software with proper location of Feedaids like Riser, vent holes , chills and insulating sleeves based on pictorial results based on CAD and simulation tools with the goal of improving casting quality and increasing casting yield
