Automobile industries have shown great interest in replacing metal to plastic parts in order to reduce the cost and weight of the components. This can be achieved mostly be replacing metal component with injection molded components. Our study deals with the use of mold flow simulation in as a case study of metal to plastic conversion of the automobile component piston cooling nozzle. In this context the aluminium piston cooling nozzle is replaced by Nylon66+30GF piston cooling nozzle. Then based on the final product design, hand injection mold of the component was designed and manufactured. Finally the plastic part has to be tested for the working conditions, its performance in usage and compared with the aluminium part.
Keywords: Metal to Plastic, Finite Element Analysis, Piston Cooling Nozzle
