Using the computer simulation program ProCAST, the analysis of the processability of the gating system used in the current production of the SK "Foundry-Mechanical Factory" in the manufacture of large cast parts of railway rolling stock was performed. Based on computer modeling, a new design of a gating system with a dispersed metal motive with different sizes of feeder sections was developed, providing simultaneous parallel filling of all parts of the mold cavity. The feature of the proposed

With this design, two counter-flows are formed in the mold cavity, their fusion occurs in the middle part of the casting in a cooled and highly polluted state, since during the filling process, the head part of the flow collects sand inclusions along the way, is oxidized and saturated with hydrogen. These factors are a prerequisite for the formation of various defects in castings.
