A scientific approach is presented and the related logic developed for design of parting surfaces of patterns, moulds and dies used in the manufacture of cast, forged, injection-moulded and die-cast components. This has enabled computer-aided generation of parting surfaces and the determination of projected area, flatness and draw for a parting surface, identification of surfaces to which draft is provided, recognition of component segments causing undercuts, testing for dimensional stability, and location of flash, machined surfaces and feeders. Influencing criteria for parting-surface design have been formulated and developed into algorithms implemented on a personal computer. This approach greatly aids the engineer in rational decision making, paving the way for a systemized code for parting-surface design.
