Magnesium alloy has the great advantage of aluminum compared to other light alloy materials, so magnesium alloy is being carried out step by step in automotive applications and attracted attention of the automobile industry because of superior characteristics of recirculation replace previous material work, and achieved obvious effect of lightweight. With the aid of PRE/ENGINEER software, the 3D solid modeling of YM5 magnesium alloy vehicle bearing base is carried out in this paper. After determining the YM5 magnesium alloy die casting technology parameters, simulate the grids were generated using the casting simulation software ProCAST file, the numerical simulation of filling and solidification process for parts to carry on respectively, and the parts of the distribution of temperature field and the possible defects is get. Analyze the different pouring temperature (640 , 630 , 615 , 600 ) influence on solidification process defects, and optimizing the pouring system, improving the quality of castings, in order to achieve before actual production to reduce or avoid the production of casting defects, which provide technical support for producing the similar products.
